The Hill - Report: Trump to reverse Obamas Cuba policy

President Donald Trump plans on reversing a set of policies softening relations with Cuba, according to a report from The Daily Caller.

The U.S.-Cuba Trade and Economic Council, a non-partisan group, said the Trump administration is preparing to announce the changes to Obama-era policies in a June speech in Miami, according to the Daily Caller.


The report cites two unnamed sources who said a bipartisan trio of senators -- Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), and Mario Diaz-Balart (R-Fla.) -- pushed for the reversal.
Obama, who became the first U.S. president to visit Cuba in almost a century last year, put in motion a series of policies to thaw relations with the Communist island nation, which had been a strategic burden throughout the Cold War.

While Obama was able to soften regulation on some kinds of trade, business and travel, Congress has refused to lift the 57-year-old embargo.

It is like whenever the national anthem is playing, Trump hears happy birthday to me.

omg, those hands are tiny

WOW! German Opposition Candidate TORCHES Trump Over His Treatment of Merkel In Brussels.

No freely elected head of government in our country should allow him or herself to be humiliated in this way. The way this man (Trump), like an autocratic leader, believed he could inflict humiliation in Brussels. Election campaign or no election campaign, in this situation, let me be entirely clear: the chancellor represents all of us at summits like these, and I reject with outrage the way this man takes it upon himself to treat the head of our country’s government. That is unacceptable.
