Trump cancels Obama's 'one-sided' Cuban deal

Rolling back many of his predecessor's historic policies on Cuba, President Donald Trump on Friday ordered tighter restrictions on Americans traveling to the Caribbean nation and a clampdown on usa business dealings with the island's military, saying "with God's help a free Cuba is what we will soon achieve".

"Effective immediately, I am canceling the last administration's completely one-sided deal with Cuba", Trump said at an appearance in Miami's Little Havana neighborhood, although it turns out he is only rolling back some of the policies his predecessor put in place over the past year to open up relations with the communist country.

Trump yesterday was set to announce a plan to tighten rules on Americans travelling to Communist-run Cuba and significantly restrict United States firms from doing business with Cuban enterprises controlled by the military, White House officials said.

In a statement read out on the evening news, the Communist government said Trump was resorting to "coercive methods of the past" that hurt the Cuban people and prevented economic development but would not weaken the revolution.

Four Illinois agricultural groups issued a joint news release Friday denouncing President Donald J. Trump's decision to limit former President Barack Obama's Cuba policy.

Government denounces new USA restrictions on trade and travel, saying attempts to change its political system will fail.

In December 2014, former U.S. president Barack Obama announced that the United States would normalize relations with Cuba after more than 50 years of non-engagement and hostilities. The people who run private restaurants and who open up their homes to tourists will be directly affected.

Despite his effort to roll back parts of his predecessor Barack Obama's cuba policy, Trump stopped short of closing USA embassy in Cuba.

Such policy characterized the United States approach to Cuba for decades.

In the first five months of this year, 284,565 US citizens visited Cuba within the 12 categories, nearly equal to the number of Americans who traveled to the island in 2016.
