Trump Expected to Announce Cuba Policy Next Week In Miami

"Nothing to announce at this time but will keep you posted", a spokesperson told Travel Weekly on Monday. Trump will be under pressure from lawmakers and corporate interests to continue the USA engagement with Havana. The study, which involved 1.973 US voters, showed that 64 percent of Republicans back such policy that ease the traveling restrictions and trade with Cuba, while 22 percent reject them.

America severed ties with Cuba in 1961, shortly after Fidel Castro launched a revolution that toppled a US -friendly government. The Cuban military had a stake in the hotel's Cuban partner.

Senator Jeff Flake, an Arizona Republican who backed Obama's Cuba policy, said lawmakers on both sides of the aisle are concerned about what Trump will do.

Travel restrictions could impact USA airlines with direct flights to Cuba as well as the cruise industry. But at the same time there's a very deeply divided Cuban-American community in Miami: the younger generation wants an opening to Cuba whereas the older generation, as many of them came from the island, wants to pursue a more hardline approach.

Any additional restrictions on travel "will go over like a lead balloon, and it should", Flake said in an interview on Monday.

In a letter delivered to Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Murphy and 13 other Democratic senators encouraged officials to "build on" economic and political progress made with Cuba for the benefit of American workers.

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.

Sanctions targeting the Cuban military could have widespread effects, given its large role in the country - perhaps touching even on remittances and agriculture.

Obama's policy moves have led to extensive corporate investment on the island, including new, daily commercial flights, licenses for US hotel operators and agricultural investment 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. Marco Rubio, R-Fla.
