US - Cuba Relations Changing Once More

US relations with Cuba and the US are changing once more.
President Trump says he's rolling back the engagement policy started by former President Barack Obama in 2014... But reactions on Capitol Hill are mixed, even within party lines.

President Donald Trump signed a memorandum, directing his administration to channel funds away from the Cuban regime by identifying businesses with strong ties to the Cuban military, intelligence, and secret services - and then prohibiting - quote - "direct financial transactions with those entities or subentities"

The DNC says the new Cuba policy is going to hurt US businesses.

In a statement House minority leader Nancy Pelosi called it a "disaster for American workers," a "short-sighted,: "job-killing" policy"

 On the Republican side there are supporters.... however a few critics - like Senator Jeff Flake.... criticized the policy writing quote  "any policy that diminishes the ability of Americans to travel freely to Cuba is not in the best interests of the United States or the Cuban people."

Embassies in Washington and Havana are here to stay.
Americans will still be able to travel to Cuba, but only with a regulated tour group.
