Trump Reverses Pieces of Obama-Era Engagement With Cuba

Trump Reverses Pieces of Obama-Era Engagement With Cuba | 16 June 2017 | President Trump announced on Friday that he was reversing crucial pieces of what he called a "terrible and misguided deal" with Cuba and will reinstate travel and commercial restrictions eased by the Obama administration in an attempt to obtain additional concessions from the Cuban government. During a speech in Little Havana, the epicenter of a Cuban exile community that enthusiastically supported him in last year's election, Mr. Trump said he was keeping a campaign promise to roll back the policy of engagement begun by President Barack Obama in 2014...After the speech, he signed a six-page directive that ordered new travel and commercial restrictions while leaving in place some key Obama-era measures that eased sanctions.
