Trump to Announce Tougher Rules for Cuba

Malita Javier | 19 Junio, 2017, 15:45

But on Friday, Trump, citing human rights violations, will sign an executive order in Miami on the new policy. Others, not so much.

Cuba experts have said they expect tough anti-regime rhetoric from the president, but not a complete rollback of Obama policies that ended more than 50 years of US attempts to isolate Cuba, ushering in sweeping changes that that allowed increased travel, business and communication links and restored diplomatic relations. The "wet foot, dry foot" policy had allowed Cubans who arrived in the United States the ability to become permanent residents. The law was as inequitable as it was a unsafe lure. Bringing back Cuban cigars, even for those who had government permission to visit the island, was long illegal.

President Trump will outline the new rules tomorrow.

Obama announced in December 2014 that he and Cuban leader Raul Castro were restoring diplomatic ties between their countries, arguing that the policy the US had pursued for decades had failed to bring about change and that it was time to try a new approach.

Trump is right to recalibrate this policy without jettisoning it wholesale.

Kiwis beat Oracle in America's Cup opener in Bermuda
But Emirates Team New Zealand's young helmsman Peter Burling was as phlegmatic as ever on the eve of the Cup. Team USA can take heart from the fact they came from 8-1 down to sensationally win the 2013 America's Cup .

Even family visits in Cuba from USA relatives could be in jeopardy. The pro-business leaders said travel and trade with Cuba boosts American businesses and spread free market ideals to the island. "This is bad policy, bad politics and bad for US business". By January this year, tourism saw an increase of 145 percent, closing in on 2016's benchmark of 284,937 by May of this year.

The ban on doing business with GAESA and its subsidiaries should be another blow to the regime's finances.

Americans will not be allowed to conduct any business with anyone or entity linked to the Cuban military or intelligence services.

Choosing Miami signals that he plans to take a harder stance on Cuba, though how far he will roll back the reforms pursued by Obama remains to be seen.

The measures are also backed by Senator Marco Rubio.

"Travelers utilizing this general license must ensure they maintain a full-time schedule of educational exchange activities meant to enhance contact with the Cuban people, support civil society in Cuba, or promote the Cuban people's independence from Cuban authorities, and that will result in meaningful interaction between the traveler and individuals in Cuba".

"We would love to keep the sunny side, we'd love to keep it in compliance with existing statutes that doesn't lead to financial support for what we can only describe continues to be a very oppressive regime", Secretary of State Rex Tillerson stated in a Foreign Relations Committee Tuesday.

Polls suggest most Americans support the liberalized policy towards Cuba pushed by the Obama administration. Diplomacy and negotiation must continue to play a significant role, too.

Under Obama, the two countries restored diplomatic ties and direct communications, including air connections and postal service.

President Trump told TheDC in 2015 that he was open to ending the Cuban embargo, but on the campaign trail said he would reverse Obama's changes.

Japan investigates delay in reporting US Navy ship collision

On Thursday, he said that change is coming. It's only right that their words resound the loudest in formulating our country's revised policy.
