Venezuela reacts after the US assets of six members of the newly elected constituent assembly were frozen and says Washington is "making a fool of itself in front of the world."
Venezuelan president says the delay is necessary as 35 newly-elected members need to be declared by electoral authorities. However, pressure builds as the attorney general opens investigation into election fraud.
Embattled but determined, President Maduro prepares to proceed with his constituent assembly which can rewrite the constitution, even as the detention of popular opposition figures elicits criticism and threats of more sanctions.
The sanctions freeze any assets Maduro may have in US jurisdictions and bar Americans from doing business with him. Maduro says the sanctions reflect Trump's "desperation" and "hatred" for Venezuela's socialist government.
