Trump Threatens To ‘Terminate’ U.S.-Cuba Deal

by Jessica Montevago

President-elect Donald Trump threatened to end the newly-restored diplomatic relations between the United States and Cuba, an initiative spearheaded by President Obama.

“If Cuba is unwilling to make a better deal for the Cuban people, the Cuban/American people and the U.S. as a whole, I will terminate the deal,” he said Monday on Twitter.

The deal includes regulatory changes that ease restrictions on commerce and trade, and allow individual Americans to visit the island nation as long as they set up their own people-to-people educational programs. Previously only tour groups could visit.

Since then, the number of U.S. citizens traveling to the previously off-limits country has grown rapidly, and U.S. travel companies and airlines have begun to claim a stake. Starwood Hotels & Resorts, now part of Marriott International, announced plans to manage three hotels in Havana, and seven U.S. carriers have applied to provide scheduled flights to the other nine international airports in Cuba from five U.S. gateway cities.
