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

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 Venezuelan oil firms and individuals associated with the state oil company — Petroleos de Venezuela (PDVSA).

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

On March 31, the Treasury updated the "specially designated nationalist list" and removed those who were affected by the mix-up. »

French parliamentarians have voted to ban the wearing of the hijab in public for those under 18, to ban burkinis in public pools, and to ban the wearing of the hijab for those accompanying children on school trips.
