President George W. Bush said Friday's election by President Robert Mugabe's government a "sham."
President George W. Bush on Saturday said he was seeking U.S. sanctions against the "illegitimate" government of Zimbabwe, calling Friday's election by President Robert Mugabe's government a "sham."
"Given the Mugabe regime's blatant disregard for the Zimbabwean people's democratic will and human rights, I am instructing the secretaries of State and Treasury to develop sanctions against this illegitimate government of Zimbabwe and those who support it," Bush said in a statement.
He also said he would press for U.N. action, including an arms embargo.
