Trump policies could roll back US-Cuba ties, says Mexican academic — Interview

Parmenio Sano | 20 Giugno, 2017, 20:06

Carnival Corporation, the world's largest travel leisure company, stated although Trump's revised policy means it would have to review the "extent of the tightening of the travel rules that could potentially affect our guests", it would continue to send cruises to Cuba, CNBC reported.

It outlines President Trump's pushback on Obama Administration initiatives, which weakened the longstanding economic USA embargo on Cuba.

Donald Trump campaigning at the Bay of Pigs Museum in Miami in October. It was at this point that Rubio made the suggestion that the President would have to "go it alone".

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. "Because if they had, they'd know that the only thing that restricting travel will do is devastate Cubans working in the private sector who have relied on American visitors to provide for their families".

The move marks yet another departure from a signature policy of the Obama administration, which ended a decades-long freeze of diplomatic ties with Cuba in 2014.

Under Trump's order, the Treasury and Commerce Departments will be given 30 days to begin writing new regulations and they will not take effect until they are complete.

And they will saddle the USA government with the complicated task of policing U.S.travel to Cuba to make sure there are no transactions with the military-linked conglomerate that runs much of the Cuban economy.

Yet Trump is unlikely to undo all U.S.

"Travel from the U.S.to Cuba is an important way to encourage people-to-people diplomacy", the company wrote in a statement. Sources have told ABC News Trump will likely redefine trade and travel policy, so you will have to prove your reason for travel instead of using the honor code. And travelers seeking "people-to-people" contact will have to sign up with an organized tour group.

Trump will reportedly prohibit Americans and United States companies from doing business with a Cuban conglomerate that owns large sections of the island nation's economy, Bloomberg reported. That could have far-reaching effects since the military touches nearly every corner of the Cuban economy. "Today we are owners of boutique hotels, BnBs, restaurants and shops".


While some hotels will be encompassed by those restrictions, there will be exemptions - among them lodging options such as Airbnb, according to senior White House officials.

"There are about 50 or 60 Wi-Fi hot spots in Havana".

"A lot of people have invested money in businesses, B & B's and so forth, and they are gonna lose", said Russ Morrison.

American citizens will still be able to get commercial flights to Cuba, but only under 12 circumstances, which will be more strictly enforced. Even among Cuban-Americans in South Florida, almost two-thirds want to lift the USA embargo.

Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., worked with Trump on the changes, pushing for a harder line. Similar to past administrations, the Trump Administration believes its initiatives can lead to free elections, direct pay for Cuban workers, freedom for political prisoners, among others results.

"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. The new policy has come together after meetings within the administration. We are designers, photographers and computer programmers, and much more.

"Abandoning our progress makes no sense and achieves nothing".

"I think the evidence is modest but real that engagement contributes to a climate in which human rights can improve", said Geoff Thale of the Washington Office on Latin America.

The embargo remains in place and unchanged by Trump's policy. But even some worldwide human rights groups critical of the Cuban government say that would mean doubling down on a failed policy.
