Trump will clamp down on Cuban travel, trade

Trump will clamp down on Cuban travel, trade”

When asked whether Trump is planning to announce the naming of an ambassador to Cuba anytime soon, Sanders said that she was not certain what the plans are on that subject or whether it would be included in the President's Friday announcement, reports Efe news. Although Trump lost the Miami area to Hillary Clinton by double digits, he credits support from Cuban-Americans for helping him eke out a narrow victory statewide.

But how numerous steps President Barack Obama took to thaw our relationship with Cuba could Trump actually undo?

What do the Cuban people think? Trump will not close embassies or break the diplomatic relations that were restored with the island in 2015.

Independent Cuban enterprises not affiliated with the military, which are smaller and far fewer in number, will still be permitted to do business with USA citizens and companies under Trump's policy, Politico's report said.

According to Trump's eight-page directive, USA businesses will be restricted from transacting with Cuban businesses tied to the country's military - although recently reestablished US commercial travel to Cuba will be allowed to continue, The Miami Herald reported.

The son of a Cuban immigrant, Rubio opposed Obama's re-engagement with Cuba, saying Obama was making concessions to an "odious regime". Remittances to Cuba won't be cut off. The official said that there also won't be any changes to regulations on what Americans can bring back from Cuba.

However, the biggest change has been in the flow of USA tourists to the island, so in terms of meeting expectations, the restoration of ties fell short, added Torrico. Normalizing relations with Cuba is believed to be one of the more notable accomplishments of Obama's legacy. Obama also relaxed restrictions on travel to Cuba, though the five-decade trade embargo remains in place.

At home, Trump's critics have questioned why his administration is now singling out Cuba for its human rights record while insisting that in other parts of the world it will not lecture other countries on the issue.

The main rationale for the reversal is apparently based on the violation of human rights that continues to occur in Cuba, such as arbitrary arrests of human rights advocates and journalists.

President Donald Trump will speak in Miami on Friday. Florida Senator Marco Rubio, who campaigned viciously against Mr Trump during last year's Republican primary, played a central role in the drafting of new Cuba policy.

Each week, 'Can He Do That?' examines the powers and limitations of the American presidency, focusing on one area where Trump is seemingly breaking precedent. "You have not betrayed us - you kept your promise".

"It appears the new USA president will arrive with a different Cuba policy that is opposed to that of his predecessor Barack Obama, as we have seen in (the areas of) environment and immigration", Torrico told Xinhua in an interview. Less than a year later, the U.S. Embassy in Havana re-opened.

They watched. almost two years ago, then-U.S. President Barack Obama pursued, and secured, a thaw in relations with its longtime nemesis Cuba and the Castro government. And the president continue to authorize Cuban Americans to travel to the island.

What was the Obama thaw with Cuba?

"Today, a new president lands in Miami to reach out his hand to the people of Cuba", Rubio said.
