Trump details new Cuba policy

Parmenio Sano | 17 Giugno, 2017, 04:28

Also not expected are any changes to USA regulations governing what items Americans can bring back from Cuba, including the rum and cigars produced by state-run enterprises.

Both supporters and critics of the rollback claim the ultimate goal is to help the Cuban people - by restricting tourism they say helps prop up a dictatorship and also by encouraging more tourism to help create Cuban entrepreneurs, some who fear the new rules.

While tourist travel remained officially banned, Obama also allowed a broad category of "people to people" visits to Cuba. We will enforce the embargo.

Senior White House officials who briefed reporters before the announcement said Obama's overtures had enriched Cuba's military while repression increased on the island. For national security reasons, however, the Trump Administration seeks to return to a time of greater restrictions on trade and travel.

The policy risks harming independent business people by restoring a requirement for most American travelers to visit Cuba as part of tightly regulated tour groups.

" Trump to Little Havana crowd: 'You wouldn't move to Palm Beach, would you?' ".

Marriott said in a statement it was taking a wait-and-see attitude about Trump's plan. The president announced changes to Obama-era Cuba policy, and challenged the Castro government to negotiate a better deal.

"Stop jailing innocent people".

"We will take concrete steps to ensure that investments flow directly to the people so they can open private businesses and begin to build their countrys great, great future, a country of great potential", he said amidst a loud applause from the audience.

The President personally thanked a one-time rival for the presidential nomination, Sen.

President Donald Trump's new Cuba policy is a nod to hard-line exiles in South Florida that only hurts Americans and Cubans while diminishing Washington's ability to foster democratic and economic reforms on the island. "We will not be silent in the face of communism, oppression", Trump noted.


Speaking in Miami on 16 June, Trump criticised Obama's policy, saying improved economic ties could prop up the Castro government.

"Today we have a president that understands America must stand for freedom", Scott said.

"Headed to Miami to announce new US policy on Cuba". The U.S. Embassy will remain in Havana and transfers of cash that have already been made will be honored.

Regulations allowing USA commercial flights and cruise ship to travel to Cuba will not be affected, the officials said. The President should also restore funding for USA democracy programs and work to foster a diplomatic coalition that can address Cuba's human rights record - a task made more hard by today's announcement. "I would follow Trump everywhere", he said.

"Effective immediately, I am cancelling the last government's one-sided deal with Cuba". Instead, the new presidential directive will order the Treasury and Commerce departments to begin within 30 days to write new regulations that reverse some of those Obama implemented to ease the US embargo against Cuba that has remained in place for almost 60 years.

"He didn't disappoint me", Inguanzo said after Trump's speech. "I felt he was honest, so I came here today to see that he fulfills his promise". Others allowed themselves to be soaked.

Marla Recio said she has a business in Cuba called Havana Reverie.

"If he decreases travel and cuts that out completely, that means the end of my business. Right now, most of Cuban entrepreneurs are relying a lot on American visitors", she said. "And all of the families that depend on those businesses". "We should be able to travel anywhere we want".

Across the street, an anti-Trump protester disagreed.

More details about the changes are expected to be released Friday, when the new policy is set to take effect.

United States carriers jumped on the opportunity, launching dozens of new flights to Havana and several other Cuban cities. Jorge Naranja was at Versailles. 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.
