OPINION: Living Without CITGO: Why Venezuela May Lose Its Crown Jewel

The decision of renewing the license that would save the company from falling into the hands of its creditors depends on one man. That man has his mind on other issues, and his name is Donald Trump

Pilar Navarro | Caracas Chronicles
