Trump Plans Major Restrictions on Cuba Travel

Trump Plans Major Restrictions on Cuba Travel”

Could there be a change In U.S. policy toward Cuba? During that event, the Trump noticed the people are eager for the President to place the human rights and free in Cuba and protection to U.S national security during the Castro bond.

Donald Trump will on Friday announce new restrictions on trade and travel to Cuba on Friday, but will not entirely reverse Barack Obama's 2015 rapprochement with Havana.

Trump is expected to leave the US embassy in Havana and will not bring back the "wet foot, dry foot" policy that allowed Cuban migrants who made it to the U.S.to stay in the country, a policy Obama eliminated in the final days of his presidency.

Trump's new policy will ban transactions with the Grupo de Administracion Empresarial S.A., a business controlled by the Cuban military.

The administration wants "to see commercial interaction with Cuba". "While we are reviewing what this policy could mean for this type of travel, we appreciate that the policy appears to allow us to continue to support Airbnb hosts in Cuba who have welcomed travelers from around the world".

The Trump administration says the goal of the directive is to end business practices that enrich Havana's government but fail to benefit the Cuban people.

When asked why the administration is setting up stricter regulations on trade and travel with Cuba over human rights after visiting Saudi Arabia during Mr Trump's first official visit overseas, White House officials said that the administration plans on fighting for human rights.

The U.S. feels like it is in a new Cold War, and the Trump administration is getting a little nostalgic with its policy towards Cuba.

Despite Obama's effort to improve ties, the Republican-dominated Congress has refused to lift Washington's 57-year-old embargo against Havana, which makes it illegal for U.S. corporations to do business with Cuba.

Trump's new policy will eliminate such self-certified visits by individuals while still allowing them to be done as group tours, and also retaining some individual travel under other authorized categories such as religious, artistic and journalistic activities, officials said.

The policy is a bid for Trump, to fulfill a campaign promise made, the policy will enforce a long-term ban on Americans traveling to Cuba as tourists and seeks to prevent dollars from funding Trump's administration sees as a repressive military-dominated government.

"It is a promise President Trump made and it is a promise that President Trump is keeping", an administration official said.

These changes will affect Cuba's burgeoning tourist industry that has lured Americans who had always been attracted by the island just 90 miles from Florida but impossibly out of reach thanks to long-standing sanctions. The U.S. Treasury and Commerce Departments will provide more specific regulations over the next few months.

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.

Trump accused Cuba of "cruel despotism" in May, vowing to support its people's hopes for democracy, which raised ironic cheers from rights supporters more used to his cozying up to Saudi Arabia, Turkey and other autocratic states.
