BREAKING: Leahy REAX To New Treasury Dept. Regs. Restricting Travel & Transactions By American Citizens In Cuba

“These new regulations are reminiscent of the Cold War and what one would expect of a paranoid totalitarian government, not a democracy like ours.

“The hypocrisy of the White House ideologues is glaring.  It is stunning.  On a day when President Trump and members of his Cabinet are feted in Beijing by the world’s most repressive, nuclear-armed communist government, in a country to which Americans can travel freely, his Treasury Department releases onerous and petty restrictions on what private American citizens can do in Cuba -- an impoverished neighbor that poses not the slightest threat to the United States.   

“Far from promoting human rights in Cuba, these new regulations will hurt fledgling entrepreneurs and the rest of the Cuban people by discouraging Americans from traveling there.”
