Traveling to Cuba From the U.S. Is About to Get More Complicated

On Wednesday, President Donald Trump and his administration announced it will be imposing restrictions for Americans traveling to Cuba.

"The Department of the Treasury will implement further regulatory changes to restrict non-family travel to Cuba," national security adviser John Bolton said Wednesday. “These new measures will help steer Americans dollars away from the Cuban regime.”

The changes, Business Insider explained, will restrict non-family travel to Cuba. That could make a huge impact on both the cruise industry as well as airlines that have opened service to the nation after former President Barack Obama opened up relations during his term.

Bolton’s speech, The Hill noted, was made in Miami in front of a Bay of Pigs veterans group in honor of the 58th anniversary of the failed CIA-orchestrated invasion of Cuba in 1961. The timing wasn’t lost on Ben Rhodes, a top adviser to Obama on foreign policy. After the speech, Rhodes tweeted: “Fitting because Trump's Cuba policy will be as successful as the Bay of Pigs invasion. Soon enough, Trump will no longer be President, and the inevitable direction is more engagement, more travel, and more connection between Americans and Cubans.”
