Cuba sanctions back on
US President Donald Trump has declared he is restoring some travel and economic restrictions on Cuba that were lifted as part of the Obama administration’s historic easing.
He challenged the communist government of Raul Castro to negotiate a better deal for Cubans and Cuban- Americans. Mr Trump said Cuba had secured far too many concessions from the US in the “misguided” deal but “now those days are over”.
Speaking in Miami, he said the move was an effort to ramp up pressure to create a “free Cuba”.
“I do believe that end is in the very near future,” he said.
