Trump Expected To Restrict Trade, Travel With Cuba

Given the interest from both American businessmen and general public about improving tourism and trade with Cuba, "I could see some symbolic changes to policies - perhaps more scrutiny of reasons for traveling to Cuba - but not a rollback", Dan Mahaffee, an analyst with the Center for the Study of the Presidency and Congress, told Xinhua.

Donald Trump is expected to announce a new Cuba policy as early as this week during his visit to Miami, according to unnamed sources cited by Reuters.

Unconfirmed reports said the White House is thinking of reducing the number of visits to Cuba a person can make to one a year.

However, the Trump administration is expected to maintain the full diplomatic relations restored by Obama, said the Post.

According to Guillen, while the United States political establishment in general wants to see Cuba "making progress on human rights", President Trump may also seek to fulfill his campaign promise to hold Havana "more accountable" in that regard.

New sanctions aimed at cutting off flows of money that benefit the Cuban military could affect USA hotel partnerships in Cuba, including the Four Points by Sheraton in Havana.

Another major change that is expected, Kavulich wrote, is a prohibition from US companies and individuals doing business with the entities controlled by the Cuban military. The impact would depend on how sanctions are structured.

Obama's policy changes have resulted to a massive corporate investment in Cuba, involving recent, daily commercial flights, licenses for US hotel workers and also agricultural investments by USA companies. "The idea that this is just some kind of modest step back is only true if it's done extremely carefully in the end", he said.

Since then, improvements have been made in U.S.

The president's advisers have sought input from across his Cabinet but also have been working behind the scenes with critics of the Castro administration, including Senator Marco Rubio, a Florida Republican.

Rubio said in a statement he was confident Trump would "keep his commitment on Cuba policy by making changes that are targeted and strategic and advance the Cuban people's aspirations for economic and political liberty".
