Different administrations have worked with the countrys legislative and financial entities to pass and implement laws that could punish other nations under various pretexts. The policy has even witnessed a surge during the administration of the forty-fifth president: Donald Trump. Trump and his team have imposed, re-imposed, or toughened sanctions against Russia, Iran, China, Cuba, North Korea and Venezuela to name a few. The measures have targeted mainly the economic sectors of these countries which have to do with peoples livelihood and well-being.
