Trump will clamp down on Cuban travel, trade

Parmenio Sano | 19 Giugno, 2017, 04:51

Though Trump's announcement stops short of a full reversal of the Cuba rapprochement, it targets the travel and economic engagement between the countries that has blossomed in the short time since relations were restored. The Trump administration will argue that these businesses fund the oligarchy that runs the Cuban government. Still, Cuba said it is willing to continue "respectful dialogue" with on topics of mutual interest. President Donald Trump is expected to outline his administration's plans in Miami on Friday.

Those trips were not subject to strict scrutiny by authorities, meaning that some visits to the island verged on tourism, still illegal under the long-standing embargo against the Castro regime.

The president says his new policy will also restrict the flow of American dollars to the military, security and intelligence services that are the core of the government led by Raul Castro. Cuban officials proudly say they have already withstood over 50 years of punishing United States sanctions.

After watching #President Trump in action over the early months of his presidency, many lawmakers and lobbyists have seen his lack of an agenda and policy as an opportunity to try and influence the President to better guide his hand towards their own agendas. Diplomacy and negotiation must continue to play a significant role, too. The ostensible goal was to foster a mutual connection between citizens of the two countries in a structured and regulated fashion.

Embassies in Havana and Washington will remain open. Travel to Cuba by USA airlines and cruise ships will continue, however. It outlines President Trump's pushback on Obama Administration initiatives, which weakened the longstanding economic US embargo on Cuba.

Critics said the changes would only hurt everyday Cubans who work in the private sector and depend on American visitors to help provide for their families. He's expected to unveil his policy in a speech Friday in Miami. "You have not betrayed us - you kept your promise". Also Trump is likely redefining what it means to be part of the Cuban military, which could affect USA companies doing business in Cuba.


"At the very least, we were expecting to see the start of investment in Cuba, as well as greater political opening of the Cuban government and the diversification of the island's economy", said Torrico.

"No, I don't think that Trump will undo everything that Obama did, everything that Obama accomplished, let's say", said Wayne Smith, a former USA diplomat who was once stationed in Havana.

Yet it also exposed the shortcomings in Obama's approach. While it is formally banned under federal law, the Obama administration allowed people to travel to the island as part of "people to people" education programs.

The policy changes won't take effect immediately, so Americans with plans to travel to Cuba in the near future won't be affected.

Despite the years of hostility, Cubans generally love America.

"When he's cutting back on travel, he's hurting us, the Cuban entrepreneurs", said Camilo Diaz, a 44-year-old waiter in a restaurant in Havana.
