Cuba Rejects New US Policy, Saying Pressure Will Not Work

-Cuban detente negotiated by his predecessor Barack Obama, Trump on Friday ordered tighter restrictions on Americans travelling to the Caribbean island and a clampdown on dealings with its military, which owns numerous capital city's top establishments. Trump has stated that money spent in Cuba must not benefit the military or the state security services, and that reversing the Obama detente will help tackle Cuba's repressive politics and human-rights abuses.

In doing so, traveling to Cuba will be more hard. The representative denies those claims, but remains opposed to loosening trade and travel restrictions on Cuba. Travels should fall within the 12 approved categories, which include family visits, humanitarian, professional and educational activities.

Even the low end of 12,000 jobs still accounts for more jobs than the president saved with his much lauded victory over Carrier, which is speculated to have saved the US economy between 800 and 1,100 American jobs.

Cuba later denounced the move as a setback in U.S. Against that backdrop, any United States changes Havana can interpret as "hostile" may affect Cuba's "domestic process in a way that doesn't serve the kind of. gradual but sustained road to real reform that most Cubans would like to see".

Cuba's foreign minister has rejected President Donald Trump's new policy toward the island, saying "we will never negotiate under pressure or under threat" and refusing to return USA fugitives who have received asylum in Cuba. The average Cuban does, and our policy has helped them. In the weeks after his election victory, Trump forcefully hinted at his plans for Cuba.

The move is seen as an attempt to roll back parts of Obama's policy of normalizing US-Cuba diplomatic ties, which was introduced in December 2014.

Emmer, who's been one of Trump's most enthusiastic backers on Capitol Hill, echoed Crawford's criticism, saying Trump's Cuba directive appears to be in violation of his promise to keep the American homeland safe.

He and five other Republicans also warned that a cooling of relations with Cuba could threaten bilateral agreements with Havana to tackle human trafficking, illegal drugs and cybercrime.

Cuban officials said last Wednesday that almost 285,000 U.S. visitors flocked to Cuba in the first five months of 2017, roughly the same number as for all of previous year. US industry groups said the Cuban regime in the long term will be forced to change politically, as well as economically, through continued business engagement with the Caribbean country. The response of the American people might be more surprising and may matter more to decision makers in D.C. Marco Rubio of Florida.

Louisiana leaders expected to grab most of the US trade market with Cuba if restrictions were lifted-an expected $500 million to $600 million for Louisiana over the first five years, much of that in agriculture products like rice, soybeans and poultry.

The Trump Administration argues that very real human rights dilemmas in Cuba justify resuming embargo policies. It only serves to perpetuate an "us against them" mentality, which is the exact opposite of the uniting effect that travel has the power to do. We look forward to the new cruises being planned for Cuba with Carnival Cruise Line and Holland America Line.

Friday's announcement was met with chagrin by several members of Congress, including Arizona Sen. The ability of Americans to travel freely on vacation to the country will be scrapped.

A trio of lawmakers - two Republicans and one Democrat - welcomed President Donald Trump's new policy on Cuba. Can people still travel to the country? A total of 191 countries voted in favor.

Washington, D.C. Rep. Barbara Lee echoed those thoughts in her own statement.

US President Donald Trump on Friday tightened up restrictions on US citizens traveling to Cuba, backtracking some of the progress made by his predecessor Barack Obama. Many work in tourism: setting up restaurants in their homes, driving tourists around town in their decades-old cars, or acting as translators or tour guides.

There's also no change to the policy allowing US travelers to bring home an unlimited amount of Cuban rum and cigars for personal consumption.
