Wrong.  Obama never lifted the tourism ban.

And you can now bring Cuban cigars back from other countries, including Cuba if you are able to go there

True, Obama never "lifted" the ban. But he side-stepped it by relaxing regulation which allowed Americans to visit Cuba on a "people-to-people" basis.

Trump promised to undo all of that.

"Regulations" are supposed to be written to implement the laws passed by Congress.

Of course you know that.

I do.  but theres a groundswell movement to end the 55-year old Embargo. Most Americans favor ending it.



A lot has changed in the last 55 years in U.S. politics — which party controls Congress and the presidency, the size and reach of the federal bureaucracy, America’s rivals abroad. But through all that turmoil, you could count on one thing never changing: the embargo that prohibits trade and travel to and from Cuba.

Over most of the last six decades, few have really cared enough to do something about it; even as the Cold War ended, the Castro regime endured, and many policymakers — if only privately — came to believe the embargo didn’t really work.

But if Sen. Amy Klobuchar and Rep. Tom Emmer have their way, that’s going to change. They are the sponsors of their respective chambers’ bills to end the trade embargo.

A big reason why Klobuchar and Emmer believe they have a shot is because this is a moment in time with historically high levels of public support for ending the embargo. As of last July, a poll found 72 percent of Americans favor lifting the trade embargo.

Most Americans think the Communist Party of Cuba is not in charge of Cuba and have no idea who would profit from an end to the embargo. It's often claimed that "the Cuban people" will benefit. It looks to me like the Communist Party and their cronies will be the main beneficiaries. They will make Cuba very much like it was when Batista was Dictator.

Perhaps that's best?

The communist party will turn Cuba into what they destroyed in the Batista regime??
Surreal Jeff!

Change is coming to Cuba, on their terms and on their schedule, and there's nothing the US can do to interfere with it. Not in the past and not now.

The US has been welcomed to do it with Cuba and the people apparently, according to the Chief's link, are going to overrule you and the *neo-Nazis that want to stop it.

*neo in the literal sense.

They imagine that the Cuban people have been given economic freedom and are probably suing to have their Rights enforced... Cheesy

They could get such silly ideas from this very Forum. Angry

Does "neo" have other than literal senses? Please tell me about them. I love language. I wish I was better at it.
