Trump is expected to leave the USA embassy in Havana and will not bring back the "wet foot, dry foot" policy that allowed Cuban migrants who made it to the U.S.to stay in the country, a policy Obama eliminated in the final days of his presidency. The US wet foot dry foot policy to protect Cuban refugees who land on American shores will not be altered.
That said, with an estimated 400,000 Americans expected to visit the island this year, the White House says that those who have already booked trips before the new policy takes effect, will still be able to visit the island.
According to the Miami Herald, the new rules also mandate that travelers to the Spanish-speaking Caribbean country be subjected to a Treasury Department audit of their trip to ensure they fall under one of the permitted categories. And the USA government will police other such trips to ensure there's a tour group representative along making sure travelers are pursuing a "full-time schedule of educational exchange activities". Even among Cuban-Americans in South Florida, almost two-thirds want to lift the USA embargo.
A group of GOP congressmen sent letters to Trump urging him to leave Cuba open. It outlines President Trump's pushback on Obama Administration initiatives, which weakened the longstanding economic USA embargo on Cuba.
However, these numbers still fall short of U.S. Airlines' expectations, who invested liberally following the promise of potential profits.
Trump will clamp down on Cuban travel, trade
What's most important is that the ratcheting back of Obama's policy not be the end of USA efforts to force reform in Cuba. Critics say Obama didn't exact concessions from the Cuban government on human rights and democratic reforms.
No changes will be made to USA trade embargo.
On the stage in Miami, Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, R-Fla., said the US would no longer have to witness the "embarrassing spectacle" of an American president glad-handing with a dictator.
When asked how much of a setback the new policy could represent, "not much", says Torrico, adding that because little real progress was made in bilateral ties, especially since Cuba's main demand - that the embargo be lifted - was largely ignored. Marco Rubio, considered a key participant in the decision-making.
At home, Trump's critics have questioned why his administration is now singling out Cuba for its human rights record while insisting that in other parts of the world it will not lecture other countries on the issue.
"The president's one-sided deal for Cuba and with Cuba benefits only the Castro regime", Trump said during a campaign rally in Miami on Sep.
The change in the USA posture toward Cuba under Trump marks the latest policy about-face by the president. Trump wants to see improved human rights, free elections and the release of political prisoners, officials said.
"No, I don't think that Trump will undo everything that Obama did, everything that Obama accomplished, let's say", said Wayne Smith, a former US diplomat who was once stationed in Havana.
For the announcement, the White House chose to have Trump speak at the Manuel Artime Theate in Miami.
During last year's presidential campaign, Trump threatened to "terminate" deals that the Obama administration made with Cuba.

Gingrich later clarified that the "bad people" he was referring to are the "people who are going to be after" the president. It turn out all sorts of US Senators routinely meet with the Russian Ambassador. "I regret that I do not", Rosenstein said.
Tourism to the island is still strictly prohibited, but White House officials said that enforcement of the ban has been lagging. As a result, the changes - though far-reaching - appear to be less sweeping than many U.S.pro-engagement advocates had feared.
