Default Trump's last blunder. Small pizzeria in Italy sanctioned instead of a Venezuelan oil

https://www.businessinsider.com/ital...blunder-2021-4


On Trump's last day in office, he ordered that sanctions be imposed on those in the Venezuelan oil industry.
In a case of mistaken identity, two Italian business owners had their companies blacklisted.
The owners of a Verona pizzeria and a Sardinia graphic design studio have been removed from the sanctions list.

The Trump administration accidentally slapped sanctions on an Italian restaurant and a graphic design studio before the former president left office, The Guardian reported.

On former President Donald Trump's last day of office, he ordered that sanctions be imposed on a network of Venezualan oil firms and individuals associated with the state oil company — Petroleos de Venezuela (PDVSA).

This was part of a long-term economic embargo on Venezuala, intended to put an end to President Nicolas Maduro's regime.

However, an unfortunate mistake meant that two Italian business owners, who shared the same name as a man involved in the Venezuelan oil trade, had their businesses targeted in the crackdown.

Alessandro Bazzoni, the owner of a pizzeria in the Italian city of Verona, discovered that his business was placed on a US trade blacklist after visiting his local bank, The Guardian reported.

"When I heard that my current accounts had been blocked, I thought it was a joke," Bazzoni told Italian newspaper Corriere della Sera. "These are already difficult times for us restaurant owners, the last thing I needed was to have my accounts blocked."

Bazzoni told the newspaper that he has not received an apology. He said, however, that he is grateful for his name being removed from the sanctions list. "I thank the new American government for the efficiency with which it intervened," Bazzoni told Corriere della Sera.

Another Italian man, who is also called Alessandro Bazzoni, had his business targeted too. The US Department of the Treasury blacklisted his company, SeriGraphicLab, according to The Guardian.

The Sardinian business owner, who declined to offer comment, confirmed with the paper that his graphic design studio had been on a sanctions list.

The incidents were a case of mistaken identity. The US government was trying to target another Italian citizen who had been a "core facilitator" of a network designed to help PDVSA, The Washington Post reported.

On March 31, the Treasury updated the "specially designated nationalist list" and removed those who were affected by the mix-up.
I'll bet Biden had to hire one team just to sniff out all the fvck ups

Your story and 99 cents might buy a cup of coffee. You have nothing to say about Biden's f**k ups after less than three months as president?

Don't rebut with anything childish or retarded, because I will ignore it.

This was certainly most unfortunate (although somewhat understandable).

One might reasonably wonder, however: If something similar had happened under the Biden administration, would you jump on it so enthusiastically?

Or do you just wish to b*tch-slap Donald Trump at every possible opportunity?

First),Biden hired no one to do this. The media, Who are still stuck in Trump Hate land, is doing it for him.


Second) you need to be aware, Trump left the White House months ago. He is no longer there. That and your foul language convinces no one of anything useful.

Third) Biden said Trump did not have a C0VID Plan.. Actually Trump ,Who's rapid program plan developed the vaccine in record time, did have a plan which predicted availability to virtually everyone by Mid April of 2021. That the actual date Biden predicted is past that, being on the 19th, is irrelevant but feel free to make of it what idiots do.

Trump got the vaccine in secret. Because Otherwise He Might Have Helped the Country
