Republicans Divided as Trump Reverses Some Obama Cuba Policy

21 June 2017

"The policy centres on the belief that the oppressed Cuban people - rather than the oppressive Castro regime's military and its subsidiaries - should benefit from American engagement with the island", he said.

Still, Trump's action allowed him to claim credit for taking a tough stand while leaving in place numerous changes made by Obama, which polls have shown are broadly supported, including by most Republicans. The president announced a revised Cuba policy aimed at stopping the flow of usa cash to the country's military and security services.

Trump tore into former President Barack Obama in front of an audience made up largely of Cuban exiles and their descendants in a theater named for a leader of the failed 1961 US -backed Bay of Pigs invasion.

TIMES -The executive order signed by President Donald Trump this Friday in Miami to change USA policy towards Cuba contains, in essence, new restrictions on travel and commercial activities, but does not affect family visits or remittances from the Cuban-American community. Diplomatic relations will remain in tact and commercial air and sea links will be exempted from the new restrictions.

Trump's speech in Miami to announce the rollback was "full of hostile rhetoric", Havana's statement said, adding that the announced policies will "revert" the progress achieved between the two countries in the past two years. Still, Cuba said it is willing to continue "respectful dialogue" with him on topics of mutual interest. However, in a shift from Obama's approach, Trump said trade and other penalties would stay in place until a long list of prerequisites was met. "Officially, today, they are rejected". "Effective immediately, I am cancelling the last administration's completely one-sided deal with Cuba", Trump said at the Manuel Artime Theatre. What are some of the specific changes that Trump plans to make? We might face some new hurdles, particularly in terms of the transfer of money, but President Aoun has indicated that we will remain committed to broadening our commitments in Cuba and Latin America.

As previously reported, the impact caused his Bronco truck to flip over. "I and @keleighperry are ok". The report revealed Teller was initially taken to a detox center and not the police station.

"The Cuban statement said that Trump "justified that policy with alleged concerns over the human rights situation in Cuba and the need to rigorously apply" the trade embargo and blockade against the island, which Obama had relaxed".

"It's not just all about us selling things to Cuba".

Yesterday, the US President unveiled plans to switch up predecessor Barack Obama's Cuba policy. USA airlines and cruise ships would still be allowed to service the island.

However, with the slight thaw in relations ushered in by Mr Obama, "the past two years has shown that the United States and Cuba can co-operate and live together in a civilised manner, respecting differences and working together to benefit both nations and peoples". Our policy will seek a much better deal for the Cuban people and for the United States of America.

Moscow maintains close ties with Havana, and in March signed a deal to renew oil shipments to the Caribbean island for the first time in more than a decade.
