ASTA 'disappointed' with rollback in Cuba travel policy

Trump's appeal to older, anti-Castro Cuban-American conservatives helped the NY businessman put Florida's 29 Electoral College votes in his column, and he was impressed when he received the endorsement of the Bay of Pigs Veterans' Association, whose membership he dubbed "freedom fighters".

If you've been anxious about the new policy changes President Trump is announcing then don't because Carnival Corporation will continue to offer cruises. His aides contend that Obama's easing of USA restrictions has done nothing to advance political freedoms in Cuba, while benefiting the Cuban government financially.

The rules on commerce with military-owned entities won't apply to ports or airports, meaning cruise ships and air travel won't be affected, but they will "undercut efforts by the USA hotel industry" to expand into Cuba, especially Marriott's Starwood Hotels and Resorts business, The Washington Post notes.

"Our policy will seek a much better deal for the Cuban people and for the United States of America". Obama ended that policy in his final days in office.

Trump made the demand for the return of Joanne Chesimard while announcing changes to Obama-era Cuba policy in Miami Friday. The new Trump policy will require greater documentation.

Trump had previously said he supported restoring diplomatic relations but wished the US had negotiated a better deal. Miami is home to the largest Cuban-American community. Three cabinet secretaries, the governor of Florida and Florida Sen.

The new policy is expected to impose limits on commercial transactions involving the Cuban military.

According to senior White House officials, President Trump will also revisit trade and travel policies towards Cuba, clamping down on individual people-to-people travel. And they may be told they can't stay in state-run Cuban hotels - at least those run by the military, which controls most of Cuba's tourism industry. The record number of tourists was led by a big jump in visits from the United States and Europe.

"I do believe that end is in the very near future", he said. Senior White House officials said Obama's overtures have enriched Cuba's military. "But it will add a lot of uncertainty to an already uncertain environment".

Trump will sign a directive requiring the Commerce and Treasury departments to issue regulations spelling out the travel and business restrictions.

President Barack Obama's restoration of diplomatic relations with Cuba and easing of decades-old travel and business restrictions had divided Cuban-Americans.

Cuban diplomat Josefina Vidal told the Miami Herald that more than 600,000 Americans visited the island past year, a 34 percent jump from 2014. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., Roque, Vic. "Personally, I think that the more people that are able to go to Cuba and, somehow, talk to Cubans and change ideas, that's good for both sides", said Aliosha Gonzalez, who disagrees with the policy.
