Trump Announces New Sanctions

PRESIDENT TRUMP ANNOUNCES ADDITIONAL RESTRICTIONS ON CUBAN HOTELS, TOBACCO AND ALCOHOL

(CNN) – The United States announced on Wednesday a new series of restrictions against Cuba.

During an event at the White House honoring Bay of Pigs Veterans, president Donald Trump said American travelers will be prohibited from staying at properties owned by the Cuban government.

Also, there will be further limitations to import Cuban alcohol and tobacco.

Trump told these actions will ensure that U.S. dollars do not fund the Cuban regime and go directly to the Cuban people.

During the same announcement, president Trump also mentioned the U.S. are imposing strict sanctions on the dictatorships of Nicaragua and Venezuela.
