Trump Still Threatening to Reverse Obama's Cuba Policy

President-elect Donald Trump continues to threaten that he'll undo President Barack Obama's 2014 deal to normalize relations between the United States and Cuba.

Following the November 25 death of Fidel Castro, Trump tweeted on Monday, "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 deal."

Trump used similar rhetoric on the campaign trail. As our own Arthur Frommer has pointed out, a reversal of Obama's policy would almost certainly curtail Americans' ability to travel to Cuba.

As it happens, Trump renewed his threat on the very day that American Airlines and JetBlue became the first commercial carriers to operate flights between the U.S. and Havana in more than 50 years.
