Donald Trump Pulls Back Obama's Cuba Deal, Imposes New Restrictions

Dissatisfied with Obama’s one-sided deal with Cuba, President Donald Trump on Friday announced that he would be pulling back on the biased deal.

He has re-imposed certain traveling and economic restrictions on Cuba that were waived off by the Obama administration.

According to the POTUS, the country was enjoying far too many concessions and unless the Cuban government makes some changes that include releasing political prisoners, putting an end to the abuse of free thinkers and giving them freedom of expression, the penalties would stay.

The primary goal of this decision that falls short of the full reversal of the previously regulated rules by Obama is to put a stop to the financial aid that is going to the Cuban national army and security services.
