    Gone. No longer exists, effective immediately.

    @realDonaldTrump: "I have cancelled the previous administration's completely one-sided deal with #Cuba"

    New policy to be signed later today.

    eta

    JFK would be impressed.

    Demands Joanne Chesimard be returned, along with other criminals and terrorists.

    Now if we could just erase the last 8 years. BHO hurt us all over the world. He probably is the most effective terrorist yet. And he ain't done yet.
    The only claim to fame he has is he was the first 1/2 & 1/2 POTUS. He certainly did not help the blacks while in office. Worthless in a word.

    Half a century of get-tough policy didn't work, so let's go for a full century?

    As an American, I would like the freedom to travel.

    So tired of hearing about Tweety Bird. He accentuates positive about himself, all else is lies, fake news or alternate facts.

    No vacations in Cuba. You'll need to stay in a Trump hotel state side.

    Too many Republicans are buying into the media's narrative about Trump. They don't like Trump but when you ask what has he done that you, as a Republican, disagree with they don't have a clue. They are being brainwashed by democrats/Clintonites in the media and they aren't even aware of it.

    Sorry, I think this is loony, just like US Cuba policy for the last 40 years.

    We'll effect more change there with our dollars and tourists and by selling our products there than we ever could with isolation.

    Maybe the only thing Obama did that I wholeheartedly endorse.

    None of this is in any way related to my love of Cuban food, for the record. Nope, not even a little.

    Lived there for over a year. You can get the same (or better) experience elsewhere in the Caribbean. -Isn't the greater good to keep the communist regime from profiting and in supporting Democratic change for the Cuban People?

    Me too. One of my medics traveled there right after Obama eased up travel restrictions. He said it was surreal, but he liked it there.

    Nothing can keep you from going to Cuba/ Any time you want. You just want to whine and snivel.

    Most other countries have lax Cuban policies and full trade and tourism, yet that has not done squat to solve the problem in over 50 years. There is no real good answer, but giving 60% of every foreign dollar to the Castro pocket has not worked.

    Hiking in Iran and visiting North Korea are still available. And if you do not value your head, Syria is a great choice! Of course, if you are still wanting Cuba, nothing is stopping you.

    I and my family came to the US from Cuba in 1968. The reason .... FREEDOM!
    The reason we left Cuba, is still there.

    Thank you President Trump!

    Most of the issue is that the corrupt government makes foreign businesses funnel money through their military which siphons off $ to keep the creep Castro brothers in power.

    BHO, the Dolt, gave Raul everything he wanted, asked noting in return and got exactly that, nothing. One of the most one sided deals this nation has ever made.

    I was assigned to a tenant command at Naval Station GTMO 85-87, before it became a prison colony. Many Cuban nationals worked service type jobs on the station. Castro's thugs met the employees after they exited the base on payday and ripped them off.

    ANYTHING we can to to hurt the Castro scum is good. Don

    How's that 'getting rid of the Castros' plan working out?

    Doing normal business, allowing normal travel, etc. will do more to limit and harm the power of the government there than anything we've tried before.

    Just let capitalism do its thing. It's what we're best at.

    Trump did not sign any legislation involving Cuba into law today.

    I purposely didn't mention how he divides the country, knowing somebody would provide an example. Thanks cowboy.
