Trump to Reverse Cuba Policy, Reinstate 'Regime Change' Goals

Cubans now face same deportation risk as other immigrants

"My friends and I have invested a lot in the possibility of the American public coming, so yes I'm anxious", said Coba, 27, echoing the view of many Cubans working in the relatively lucrative tourism sector.

In his perverse fixation on overturning all things Barack Obama, President Donald Trump now turns his attention to Cuba, the island located 90 miles off our shore.

Cuban diplomat Josefina Vidal told the Miami Herald more than 600,000 Americans visited the island past year, a 34 percent jump from 2014.

In addition, Americans will need to keep strict records of every financial transaction they make in Cuba and hold onto those records for up to five years should the Treasury Department, who enforces the embargo, want to audit an individual's trip. If the two states did not comprise on the same policy, it might lead towards the destruction of lives.

President Trump will make good on a campaign promise to Cuban-American hardliners on Friday when he will reverse much of the Obama administration's liberalization of relations with the Communist country. They cheered when relations were restored with the U.S. and Obama visited the island in 2016, the first USA president to do so in almost 90 years.

The source said Trump will also announce stricter enforcement of rules under which Americans can travel to Cuba, detailed in a broader National Security Presidential Memorandum.

"We want the relationship very much to be one in which we encourage people through economic interaction and that process has hopefully been started", an official told reporters Thursday. He stated that he wouldn't let the U.S people down and he follows same as Obama and Hillary Clinton do.

Human rights advocates acknowledge that Cuba has made little progress in that area, despite the Obama overtures. The moves may include new limits on travel and investment policies.

"I'd be heartbroken if I'm not allowed to travel - but I'd be way more heartbroken that someone who's been operating a casa particular or paladar would be shut out of business", she said, referring to the private bed-and-breakfasts and home restaurants which have flourished in recent years. Marion Smith is the executive director of Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation (VOC). The new Trump policy will require greater documentation.

Trump tweets about Clinton after news of obstruction of justice investigation
Obstruction of justice is a serious charge, and one which led to impeachment proceedings against Richard Nixon after Watergate. Not to mention that Trump and several of his surrogates have complained that people can't seem to let the election go.

And human rights in Cuba do matter, of course. The administration said the policy directs new regulations to be developed. And Americans can still self-certify under a general license that they are traveling to Cuba for legitimate reasons.

John Gronbeck-Tedesco is the professor at Ramapo College in New Jersey. Bob Menendez of New Jersey, and Republican Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart of Florida - have lobbied Trump hard to revive the travel ban and embargo. He promised them to provide more job opportunities and to reduce trade will not assist in doing that and so Trump is a confusion state. He signed off on depriving 23 million Americans of health care coverage in order to tighten the screws on Cuba.

Asked why Cuba stands as one of the few examples of the White House seeking to punish human rights violations, a senior administration official said that "the president has made clear that he will look toward repressive regimes in this hemisphere".

Educational trips will reportedly be required to travel with a guide from a US sponsoring organization, according to the Herald. Some of the details of the changes were released Thursday.

Obama's rules encouraged the U.S travel to Cuba.

Many Cubans, like Coba, had been banking on the number of American arrivals continuing to grow. This trip promoted the tens of millions of dollars into the Cuba private hospitality sector.

A decreasing number of USA travelers to Cuba would hurt the fledgling private sector of the country's economy, mainly composed of cuentapropistas, or self-employed workers.

Corker mentioned a visit a year ago to the island, where "about 25 percent of the country now is engaged in some kind of private-sector activity, which is certainly growth".
