Trump Set to Roll Back Obama Policy on Cuba

"The new measures, what they will do is extract a quid pro quo from the Cuban dictatorship by requiring that they give up something if we give up something", said Jose Sanchez, a supporter of the new policy.

In a speech in Miami, he will cast the updated policy as fulfillment of a campaign promise to reverse President Barack Obama's diplomatic re-engagement with the island after decades of estrangement. It will offer a path forward for the easing of restrictions and sanctions if Cuban ruler Raúl Castro makes democratic and human rights reforms.

Ameneiro also welcomes the crackdown on American travel to the island.

Several Obama policies will remain.

But according to 75-year told Raul Masvidal, who came to the USA from Cuba in 1960, not much will change after Trump's announcement.

The new policy will enforce the embargo and the ban on tourism, and ban any transactions with enterprises run by the Cuban military or security services.

" The U.S. will maintain diplomatic relations with the island nation". Although Trump lost the Miami area to Hillary Clinton by double digits, he credits support from Cuban-Americans with helping him eke out a narrow victory statewide. "The announced changes do not take effect until the new regulations are issued", the statement noted. But he will impose new limits on commercial transactions that involve the Cuban military.

Weakening the impact further, Trump's policy carves out exceptions in the military ban for airlines, cruise ships, agricultural sales and remittances. The second biggest foreign tourist group is from Germany.

"Our view is we are". He's also a co-sponsor of legislation that would eliminate restrictions on travel to Cuba by American citizens and legal residents.

"President Trump promised that he would repeal everything Obama had done with Cuba", said Valladares, who was appointed ambassador to the U.N. Commission on Human Rights by President Ronald Reagan in 1988.

Asked whether companies that have already signed Cuban contracts, such as Starwood Hotels and Resorts, should expect to lose money, an official said, "that will be handled in the specifics of regulations by Treasury and Commerce".

But facing pressure from United States businesses and even some fellow Republicans to avoid turning back the clock completely in relations with communist-ruled Cuba, the president chose to leave intact some of his Democratic predecessor's steps toward normalisation.

"We will not be silent in the face of communist oppression any longer", Trump told a cheering crowd in Miami's Cuban-American enclave of Little Havana, including Republican Senator Marco Rubio of Florida, who helped forge the new restrictions on Cuba.

Increase pressure on President Raul Castro to end human rights abuse. "It is my hope that in five to 10 years - or less - Cuba will look very different", he said said, "and people will point to this as the moment that kind of triggered those changes". But if the administration follows through on redefining what it means to be part of the Cuban military, that could affect policies on remittances down the line.
