The president said that the United States will not support oppressive regimes.
At a speech in Miami on Friday, President Trump rolled back Obama-era Cuba policies that normalized relations with the communist regime in Havana.
“I am canceling the last administration’s completely one-sided deal with Cuba,” Trump told the Little Havana, Miami crowd. “Our policy will seek a much better deal for the Cuban people and for the United States of America. We do not want U.S. dollars to prop up a military monopoly that exploits and abuses the citizens of Cuba.”
“The profits from investment and tourism flow directly to the military,” Trump said. “The regime takes the money and owns the industry.”
Trump promised to “strictly” enforce current U.S. laws sanctioning Cuba. He said that the United States will not relax its pressure on the regime until the Cuban government releases political prisoners, recognizes basic human rights, and returns fugitives hiding out from U.S. justice.
