Congressman Joe Wilson Supports Prohibition on Transactions with Venezuela 

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Joe Wilson (R-SC) released the following statement of support after President Donald Trump’s announcement prohibiting additional transactions with Venezuela.

I am pleased that President Donald Trump has taken additional steps to further isolate the bad actors in Venezuela. We do not recognize Sunday's sham election, we believe the people of Venezuela deserve better than a corrupt dictator and we will stand with the people of Venezuela as they struggle for liberty.”

In February, Congressman Joe Wilson sent a letter to Attorney General Jeff Sessions requesting the Administration investigate teleSUR TV, which engages in political activity on behalf of the Venezuelan government. You can find that letter here
