Venezuela's Maduro expresses confusion over U.S. election

In recent years, U.S. President Donald Trump has pursued a campaign of aggressive sanctions against the South American nation's ruling Socialist Party.

The sanctions against Maduro's government have included asset freezes and travel bans for senior officials, and measures to curtail the OPEC nation's oil exports and its fuel imports.

Maduro added that he wishes to have better bilateral relations with the United States, "no matter who wins the presidential elections".
