Many Cuban exiles embrace Trump policy but want more

The Department of the Treasury's Office of Foreign Assets Control released a series of frequently asked questions regarding President Donald Trump's changes to the US policy toward Cuba Friday, as the president announced the changes in Miami.

Trump plans to tell an audience in Miami that his administration will tighten travel restrictions on Americans who want to visit Cuba and restrict US companies' business dealings with entities owned by Cuban military and intelligence services, senior White House officials told reporters.

Cuba's upcoming elections, scheduled for October, are now being overseen by an electoral commission, but it's still unclear whether they will meet the standards that Trump reportedly expects. "You heard that pledge. and here I am".

At a jobs announcement in Orlando, Scott said he's convinced the longterm economic advantage of democracy and economic freedom in Cuba is preferable for Florida to any business opportunities and other relationships opening due to the thaw and lifting of economic sanctions that President Barack Obama initiated.

Rubio will be standing with the President when he makes his remarks. "As I say, there may be some small steps, some small negative steps, but I think reality will win out".

The mood in the theater was festive before Trump's speech, with red, white and blue bunting ringing the overhanging balcony and chants of "USA! USA!"

Carnival issued the following statement on its plans for future cruises to Cuba: Carnival Corporation is pleased that the policy changes announced by the Trump administration will allow our ships to continue to sail to Cuba.

Such an argument, however, is contrary to what has been recently expressed by a great number of economic, political and social circles, stressing the rapprochement to Cuba as the most beneficial for both nations. "We now hold the cards".

"This White House, by reaffirming the embargo, has re-declared war on the Cuban people". On the pretense of promoting liberty in Cuba, the administration is restricting Americans' right to travel.

Sen. Mark Warner, a Virginia Democrat, said Friday the "decision by the Trump Administration to reverse progress in US-Cuba relations sends the wrong message to the world about American leadership". Only Congress can lift it. As a condition of the briefing, the three officials asked for anonymity.

Critics say the threat of a Treasury audit could have a chilling effect on travel and hurt business for the private-run bed and breakfasts and restaurants Americans often frequent.

US cruise operators and airlines could lose around $712 million in annual revenues if the Trump administration fully reinstates restrictions on travel, Washington lobby group Engage Cuba said in a recent report. Especially in Southern Florida, where Cubans make up a key voting bloc for Republicans, Trump railed on Obama for building relations with the Castros.

Neither the White House nor Trump himself specified whether Americans might be punished for violating the new travel restrictions, or how the US would enlist other countries to help enforce its laws. Americans will also still be allowed to bring back unlimited amounts of Cuban products - including rum and cigars - for personal use.

Yes. Group people-to-people travel is educational travel not involving academic study pursuant to a degree program that takes place under the auspices of an organization that is subject to USA jurisdiction that sponsors such exchanges to promote people-to-people contact.

Jason Carlisle, head of Hispanic mobilization for the Southern Baptists' International Mission Board, says the new travel restrictions could slow down the acceleration of US missions trips to the island.

"The self-directed, individual travel permitted by the Obama administration will be prohibited", according to the release. Gaviota, GAESA's tourism arm, now operates the Four Points by Sheraton Havana, a hotel that, when it opened, was the first usa hotel to open in Cuba in almost 60 years. The White House officials indicated Trump would call for a tighter enforcement. "Those demands will include religious and political freedom for the Cuban people and the freeing of political prisoners". During his visit to Riyadh last month, he said he had not come to "lecture" about any country's internal policies.

President Trump announced on Friday that he will be cancelling former President Obama's deal with Cuba.
