Trump weighs shift on Cuba

May 31, 2017

President Trump is weighing whether to take a harder line with Cuba, potentially risking the thaw in relations started by the last administration.

But it’s unclear just how far Trump is willing to go in reversing former President Barack Obama’s historic opening with the island nation — an effort that has been widely popular with the U.S. business community and a growing number of GOP lawmakers.

The White House is vigorously debating how to approach its policy with Cuba. Trump is facing pressure from Cuba hard-liners in Congress to scale back Obama’s policies, but there are divisions in the administration about what to do, according to two sources familiar with the matter.

The Trump administration said it is near completing a review of Cuba policy and that an announcement will likely be made in the “coming weeks,” but emphasized that a decision has not yet been finalized.

    If Cuba had oil there would be no debate. It’s not the type of government or even how Cuba treats it’s citizens that matter, we do trade with much worse governments. It’s not that they are long standing enemies because once again we will do business with anyone with money. The only problem is a small group of people hold a over half century grudge about how their grandparent had to flee. We fought a war with countries that we now have as trading partners. Our treatment of Cuba over the years has done nothing for the Cuba people, not hurt the government or reduced it’s power or changed how they treat their people so maybe a new approach makes sense.

      BSBob, I see you’re an expert in Cuba also. Is there no end to your expertise? You have to be the smartest a$$ hole on earth. But then, you’re still an a$$ hole.

        I just seem smart when compared to you. Our President had no problem with the idea of boing business with Cuba.

            So Newsweek’s reports are not fact, Trumps people didn’t get busted for going to Cuba?

      Everybody on the left insist that embargo has no effect on communist regime of Cuba.
      How about that Cuba was not able anymore to spread evil communism in Angola, Mozambic, Ethiopia etc, like they did in the ’80.

      1. bobnstuff says:

        The embargo had nothing to do with that. It was the fall of the USSR that ended the funding. Without the USSR Cuba was on their own and had no incentive to spread Communism.

        1. gp says:

          Realy? Then why this big fuss about embargo from the left when Cuba was free to do business with the rest of the world? Big investments in hotels from Canada, Spain and others

          1. bobnstuff says:

            The fuss is coming from Florida not from the left. Most Americans support dropping them.
