So i get the federal register daily

i do a search for "president" every day and just thought this EO regarding Venezuela held some pretty rich language:

I, DONALD J. TRUMP, President of the United States of
America, in order to take additional steps with respect
to the national emergency declared in Executive Order
13692 of March 8, 2015, and relied upon for additional
steps taken in Executive Order 13808 of August 24,
2017, Executive Order 13827 of March 19, 2018, and
Executive Order 13835 of May 21, 2018, particularly in
light of actions by the Maduro regime and associated
persons to plunder Venezuela's wealth for their own
corrupt purposes, degrade Venezuela's infrastructure
and natural environment through economic mismanagement
and confiscatory mining and industrial practices, and
catalyze a regional migration crisis by neglecting the
basic needs of the Venezuelan people,
hereby order as
follows:
