Trump cancels Obama's 'one-sided' Cuban deal

Trump Humiliates Himself By Trying To Take Credit For Raul Castro’s 2013 Decision To Step Down

"The government of Cuba denounces the new measures toughening the embargo", according to a statement read on Cuban state television.

Trump's policy on Cuba, which was announced Friday, reaffirms the existing embargo on Cuba and opposes worldwide calls for its termination.

Likewise, Trump will not cut off recently resumed direct U.S. -Cuba commercial flights, but will impose additional restrictions for personal travel to the island 90 miles south of Key West.

"US extremism aspires to cover the planet with misery, violence and death", she said in a series of tweets blasting Trump and praising Cuba.

American companies and citizens will also be barred from doing business with any firm controlled by the Cuban military or its intelligence or security services, walling off crucial parts of the economy, including much of the tourist sector, from American access.

Once implemented, Mr Trump's policy is expected to curtail USA travel by creating a maze of rules for Americans to obey.

Implying that Obama's Administration was covering up for the Castro regime's Human Rights violations.

It's not hard in the scruffy streets of Little Havana, where old men play dominos in parks between Cuban diners and up-and-coming jazz bars, to find hardliners who spit on the "communist Obama" and his supposed sell-out to Castro.

"The harboring of criminals and fugitives will end", Trump said.

Navalny jailed, 1500 arrested after protests across Russian Federation
Again, the protests were unsanctioned by police but Navalny claimed the charges were politically motivated. "I want changes. Riot police in Moscow have begun detaining demonstrators in an unsanctioned opposition rally in the center of the city.

The statement said a "strategy aimed at changing the political, economic and social system in Cuba, whether it seeks to achieve it through pressures and impositions, or by employing more subtle methods, will be doomed to failure".

And he is not closing down the American embassy Obama opened in Havana - a pillar of the deal Trump claimed was so terrible for the US.

"Officially, today, they are rejected".

Americans will no longer be able to travel to Cuba individually unless they fall into one of 12 previously established categories that will continue to include people-to-people but only if they are part of a group with a set schedule.

Diplomatic relations between the United States and Cuba will remain open, as will the newly opened embassies in Washington and Havana.

It is expected that the Treasury and Commerce Departments will release precise regulations within 30 days.

"The Cuban people will continue deciding themselves on the changes necessary for Cuba". And he insisted: "We challenge Cuba to come to the table with a new agreement that is in the best interest of both its people and ours". "I do think you're likely to see a fewer number of flights and higher fares", said Andrew Keller, a partner at Hogan Lovells focusing on worldwide trade and investment. This is likely to affect pending hotel projects with Cuban companies that have ties to the military.

"I don't understand how anyone could argue that we should not have a policy that enriches the Cuban people instead of the Cuban military", Rubio, R-Fla., told Maria Bartiromo during an interview on "Sunday Morning Futures".

The historic deal Obama struck with Cuba in 2014 led to the 2016 opening of a Starwood hotel on the island - the "first Cuban hotel managed by a USA company in almost 60 years", according to the Post, and other hotel companies had hoped to follow suit. The Cuban government has made clear it will not be pressured into reforms in exchange for further engagement with Washington.
