Rubio: Trump's Cuba Policy Will Help 'Individual Cubans'

Trump said his new policy will tighten rules on travel and on sending funds to Cuba.

To this day, Cuba is ruled by the same people who killed tens of thousands of their own citizens, who sought to spread their repressive and failed ideology throughout our hemisphere and who once tried to host enemy nuclear weapons 90 miles from our shores, Trump said.

In a statement released on government-run websites and television Friday evening, President Raul Castro's administration says Trump's speech was "loaded with hostile rhetoric that recalls the times of open confrontation".

"I am totally sure that this is much better that what Obama did", said Lopez, who arrived in the 1960.

April 2009: President Barack Obama lifts restrictions on family travel and the sending of remittances to Cuba.

United States businesses and citizens will be excluded from doing business with any company controlled by the Cuban Armed Forces (FAR) or its intelligence or security services.

"If I were the Cuban government I'd put Trump's speech up in schools".

Trump will not sever diplomatic ties with Cuba nor shutter the US embassy that reopened there in 2015.

Whether or not USA citizens will continue to visit the island under tighter restrictions will only be seen in the future.

The policy change once again raised questions about whether or not Trump has done enough to separate his business interests from his public office.

Speaking in Miami in the state of Florida where a large Cuban diaspora is living the USA president urged the Cuban government to sit to a table of negotiations to come to an agreement that would suit the interests of both Washington and Havana. He has already pulled the United States out of a major global climate treaty and is trying to scrap his predecessor's landmark healthcare programme.

"We will not be silent in the face of communist oppression any longer", Trump said at the Manuel Artime Theater, named for a former supporter of Fidel Castro who became a leader of Brigade 2506, the land forces that spearheaded the US-led Bay of Pigs invasion in 1961.

The Russian Foreign Ministry said Saturday that the new U.S. policy on Cuba was regretful as it brought back memories of the Cold War era.

"More importantly, as Cuba moves to reform its economy in the post-Castro era, American businesses should be present to lead by example", Marriott's statement said.

According to the new directive signed by Trump, the USA embassy in Havana, which reopened in August 2015, will remain open. But today what is clear is the Cuban people's unwavering sense of perseverance.

The new policy is only a partial reversal from that of the Obama administration.

Embassies in Washington and Havana will stay open and cruises and direct flights between the Washington and Havana will be protected under an exception from the prohibition on transactions with military-controlled entities.

Many are on the GOP side and are heavily critical of the previous administration for not doing more to insist on the return of Chesimard and other fugitives hiding out in Cuba.

"We can not continue to bring concessions to the Cuban government", he said.
