It saidTrump was resorting to "coercive methods of the past" that hurt the Cuban people, but would not weaken the revolution. "Unfortunately, today's moves actually limit the possibility for positive change on the island and risk ceding growth opportunities to other countries that, frankly, may not share America's interest in a free and democratic Cuba that respects human rights", Myron Brilliant, the chamber's executive vice president and head of worldwide affairs, said in a statement emailed to reporters. Trump's approach is aimed at halting the flow of USA cash to the country's military while maintaining diplomatic relations.
Earlier today, President Trump announced upcoming revisions to the Cuban embargo. "Effective immediately, I am canceling the last administration's completely one-sided deal with Cuba".
Cuba received a record 4 million tourists previous year, and of those more than 600,000 were USA visitors, second only to the Canadian beachgoers who favor the island's tourist resorts.

He vowed to seek a "much better deal for the Cuban people and for the United States". From Obamacare to climate policy to Cuba, he seems intent on overturning whatever Obama did - no matter how great the cost to the American people. Trump is preparing to tighten at least some of Obama's changes, including restricting business with the Cuban military and U.S.travel that resembles tourism. Trump will only direct OFAC to limit one form of authorized travel and prohibit "direct transactions" with Cuban military, intelligence, or security services entities contained on list to be published by the State Department.
Trump, in his speech at the Manuel Artime Theater near downtown Miami, announced that he was reversing those policies.
Ramon Saul Sanchez, leader of the anti-embargo Movimiento Democracia, said the changes did not fully reverse Mr. Obama's open-hand policy as Mr. Trump had suggested.
Barack Obama attempted to thaw relations by loosening trade and tourism bans.
"President Trump's policy makes itself, once again, part of the old policy of pressure and strangulation of the Cuban people", founders Lenier Gonzalez and Roberto Veiga wrote Saturday.
The changes will not go into effect until regulations are drafted by the US Treasury Department and other agencies, officials said.
But he won roars of approval and cries of 'Viva Cuba libre!' from the invited crowd of Cuban-Americans and Cuban exiles. "We lost sight - or many lost sight - of the fact that one of those family values was to have a child back with his father". A young state journalist who described himself as loyal to the government but eager to see faster, broader reforms told The Associated Press that the government saw the speech as "the best course in anti-imperialism that could be given".
It analyzes the virtues of Obama's approach, which had recognized Cuba's independence, sovereignty and self-determination, and the Cuban government in a civilized coexistence relationship.
