Russia urges Trump to discard 'Cold War' policy on Cuba

Numerous changes that President Barack Obama made to Cuban policy, including restoring diplomatic relations and re-establishing direct flight service, will remain under Trump'sCuba policy, which bars Americans and USA companies from any transactions that benefit the Cuban military.
No easing of USA sanctions on Cuba, he said, "until all political prisoners are freed, freedoms of assembly and expression are respected, all political parties are legalized, and free and internationally supervised elections are scheduled".
"We have gone through everything, our people have gone through everything", he said, according to NBC News.
In turn, airlines and US hotel chains began investing resources in Cuba, while chicken, grain and other agricultural producers from the USA exported tons of products to Cuba.
Meanwhile world tourism organizations from the UNWTO to the WTTC are railing against Trump's decision to roll back his country's Cuba policies to pre-Obama days, clamping down on individual travel to the island.
Trump will reverse the changes made by the Obama administration regarding USA dealings with the Cuban military. Hillary Clinton's coronation was busted up by the American people, who rejected eight more years of the same lunacy.
Over the last months the uptake in travel from the United States to Cuba has not been as high as expected, primarily as hotel capacity has not kept up with the demand, leading to some of the USA airlines cutting back capacity to the island.
President Donald Trump did not make any happy among the Republicans by canceling certain policies of the Obama era against Cuba, while some elected representatives of Congress saw in this option the possibility of entering a lucrative market of goods and services.

"Any policy change that diminishes the ability of Americans to travel freely to Cuba is not in the best interests of the United States or the Cuban people", stated Flake. Mr. Trump's new measures mainly relate to stricter enforcement of existing laws that had begun to loosen as Mr. Obama sought a rapprochement. "They have nothing to do with human rights".

My opinion: Trump's limited reversal of Obama's opening to Cuba is political theater with very little real impact.
"The Cuba people have long suffered under a Communist regime that suppresses their legitimate aspirations for freedom and prosperity and fails to respect their essential human dignity", it said. "Other repressive tactics employed by the government include public acts of shaming and the arbitrary termination of employment", it adds.
The pretense that this has anything to do with the Cuban government's abuses and violations of human rights might nearly seem credible if it came from someone else, but coming from the Saudi-embracing, Sisi-praising, Duterte-admiring Trump it is an insulting and blatant exercise in hypocrisy. That changed last October, when the Obama administration for the first time controversially chose to abstain.
But while Trump's policy backtracks on some of former President Barack Obama's efforts to engage with the island, key directives will remain in place.
The paper also reveals that he earned higher revenues from the sale of his book The Art of the Deal (1987), and resigned from his duties in 565 companies just before entering the White House.
While we won't know exactly how the Treasury Department will enforce the President's broad directive until the regulations are drafted, it appears likely that the "People-to-People" exchanges under which many thousands of Americans visited Cuba a year ago will be limited by the new requirement to contract with a tourism service provider like the Vermont based CAFS Travel.
