Moscow Accuses Trump of Returning to Cold War-Style Rhetoric on Cuba

Cuba's Formal Response to Trump's Speech on Policy Changes

On June 16, 2017, President Trump announced in a speech in Miami a major departure from the prior administration's policy of reengagement with Cuba, reinstating certain travel restrictions previously eased by the Obama administration and imposing important new restrictions on commercial activities.

"Obama announced in December 2014 that his administration would re-establish diplomatic relations with Cuba, he promised his administration would raise issues related to democracy and human rights directly with the Castros when necessary", they said.

The foreign minister made it clear that the US citizens who committed crimes in Cuba, like hijacking planes, were sentenced by Cuban courts and served lengthy prison sentences. It will not achieve what US sanctions against Cuba failed to achieve in the past five decades. Including agricultural exports, the USA stands to lose 14,500 jobs and $8.1 billion in revenue.

According to a recent Pew Research Center survey, 75 percent of Americans support improved links between Havana and Washington. The company still plans to ship around 300 positions to Mexico before Christmas. "The more tourism and business that develops in Cuba and the more contacts they have with the outside world, the more quickly that will happen". Trump has stated that money spent in Cuba must not benefit the military or the state security services, and that reversing the Obama detente will help tackle Cuba's repressive politics and human-rights abuses.

That was a fraction of the four million tourists who visited the island overall. The leadership that comes after him could usher in warmer relations between Cuba and the U.S.

In a statement, ASA Vice President and Iowa farmer John Heisdorffer pointed to the lost potential for American soybean farmers in Cuba as the United States takes a step back in its effort to increase opportunities for trade with the island nation.

Meanwhile, U.S. travelers would still be allowed to bring home rum and cigars from Cuba for personal consumption.

"Access Trips' tours will operate as planned, with our eight-day immersive culinary tours as well as our five-day weekend trips to Havana both created to help our guests explore Cuban culture through its cuisine".

Trump's claims, outlined in a presidential memo, that "t$3 he Cuban people have long suffered under a Communist regime that suppresses their legitimate aspirations for freedom and prosperity and fails to respect their essential human dignity", is laughable, coming from a USA government that routinely engages in torture, assassination and jailing of its political enemies, and which has built up the infrastructure of a police state beyond the dreams of the regime in Havana.

The Cuban government response was restrained. Marco Rubio and Bob Menendez and Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart in the Miami Herald.

Emmer, who's been one of Trump's most enthusiastic backers on Capitol Hill, echoed Crawford's criticism, saying Trump's Cuba directive appears to be in violation of his promise to keep the American homeland safe.

In doing so, traveling to Cuba will be more hard.

The Russian Foreign Ministry has criticized President Donald Trump's decision to freeze a detente with Cuba and his verbal attack on the Caribbean island's leaders.

Lawrence Ward, a partner at the worldwide law firm Dorsey & Whitney in Washington, said that while what Trump said "was a direct rebuke of the Obama administration's loosening of sanctions against Cuba", the announcement did not "make clear precisely what will change and how, but does emphasize that the United States does not want to enrich and empower the Cuban military".

"This policy was clearly written by people who have never been to Cuba, at least not in this century", James Williams, head of Engage Cuba, a group that lobbies for closer Cuba ties, said in a statement.
