Venezuela Sends $500 Million in Gold To Iran

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo accused Venezuela’s leaders of stealing nine tons of gold ($500 million worth) from the country’s reserve and shipping the bars to longtime ally Iran. Pompeo said in a tweet on May 2 that “thugs” from the regime of Venezuelan dictator Nicolas Maduro “looted” nine tons of gold bars and sent them to Iran, claiming Venezuela’s leaders were “partnering with the world’s leading state sponsor of terror.”
