Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced Friday the U.S. will restrict visas for people connected to International Criminal Court (ICC) investigations into U.S. military personnel.

Pompeo made the announcement at a State Department briefing Friday morning. The secretary of state added the U.S. is ready to take additional steps, including sanctions.

The briefing comes after the State Department announced all diplomats have left Venezuela and the administration continues to apply pressure to the regime of Nicolas Maduro. Venezuela has experienced widespread blackouts in recent days, inflicting hardship on an already struggling country.

The briefing also comes just two weeks after Mr. Trump's summit with North Korea ended abruptly with no deal.

Pompeo is dining with President Trump Friday afternoon.
