Trump announces new restrictions on Cuba as he courts Florida voters

/ / News

President Donald Trump on Wednesday said his administration will impose new restrictions on Cuba, in a move that looks to have been designed in part to win over voters in Florida, where Cuban-Americans who oppose the country’s communist regime are a key voting bloc. “The Treasury Department will prohibit U.S. travelers from staying at properties owned by the Cuban government. We’re also further restricting the importation of Cuban alcohol and Cuban tobacco,” Trump said Wednesday at a White House event honoring veterans of the Bay of Pigs Invasion.
