The left has been imploding ever since President Trump took office in January, and it does not look like it will stop anytime soon. Between the ANTIFA riots and the mainstream media peddling, fake news liberals are in total freak out mode. During the last 8 years, Barack Obama did his best to ruin America and was hoping his destructive policies would stay in place. However, the moment that Trump was elected the left saw all their hard work being flushed down the toilet. Every day we have witnessed Trump dismantle Obama’s legacy brick by brick, and this final piece may bring riots in the streets.
When Donald Trump was on the campaign trail he told the American people that he would work for us. That the days of policies that did not benefit the American people would be forever in the past. We witnessed that recently when President Trump decided to pull out of the Paris Accord that would steal American jobs and cost taxpayers millions. Of course, the left lost their relatively small minds and they are still moping about it to this day. However, if we thought the left was insufferable then we have not seen anything yet.
President Trump announced on Friday that he would be cutting Obama’s one-sided deal with Cuba. Trump said that he was moving to restrict travel, crack down on the cash-flow from the U.S. to Cuban military and demand key reforms in Havana.
Listen to Trump’s speech and the thunderous applause at the end.
“Effective immediately, I am canceling the last administration’s completely one-sided deal with Cuba,” Trump told a cheering crowd.
Trump cast his announcement Friday as the fulfillment of a campaign pledge to turn back former President Barack Obama’s diplomatic outreach to the country.
“I keep my promises,” Trump said. “And now that I am your president, America will expose the crimes of the Castro regime.”
A cornerstone of the new policy is to ensure Americans traveling to Cuba only support private businesses and services, banning financial transactions with the dozens of enterprises run by the military-linked corporation GAESA.
The Trump administration also says it will strictly enforce the 12 authorized categories allowing American citizens to travel to Cuba – banning one particular type of travel, known as individual “people-to-people” trips, seen as ripe for abuse by would-be tourists.
Most U.S. travelers to Cuba will again be required to visit the island as part of organized tour groups run by American companies. Obama eliminated the tour requirement, allowing tens of thousands of Americans to book solo trips and spend their money with individual bed-and-breakfast owners, restaurants, and taxi drivers. The rules also require a daylong schedule of activities designed to expose the travelers to ordinary Cubans.
Trump focused his speech Friday on the crimes and misdeeds of the Castro government, saying his administration would not “hide from it.” He accused the regime of harboring “cop killers, hijackers, and terrorists” while casting the policy changes as meant to encourage a free Cuba.
“With God’s help, a free Cuba is what we will soon achieve,” Trump said.
There have been many critics of the United States decade-long freeze and saw Obama’s approach as a welcome change. However, while many on the left thought that this was positive many lawmakers in D.C. saw it as a slap in the face. One of those people to be a harsh critic of Obama’s policy that favored the Communist regime was Sen. Marco Rubio. Rubio who is a Cuban-American helped craft the new deal that helps the Cuban people instead of the dictator.
“A year and a half ago … an American president landed in Havana to outstretch his hand to a regime. Today, a new president lands in Miami to reach out his hand to the people of Cuba,” Rubio said.
U.S. airlines and cruise ships will still be allowed to continue service to the island.
The U.S. Embassy in Havana, which reopened in August 2015, will remain as a full-fledged diplomatic outpost. Trump also isn’t overturning Obama’s decision to end the “wet foot, dry foot” policy that allowed most Cuban migrants who made it onto U.S. soil to stay and eventually become legal permanent residents.
Trump affirmed in his speech that the U.S. embassy would remain open, in hopes the two countries can forge a “better path.” But he said his administration would enforce the ban on tourism and the embargo, and would not lift sanctions until the regime releases all political prisoners and schedules free and internationally supervised elections.
The left always says that they are the party of compassion and tolerance, but only for the ones, they approve of. This was a raw deal for the Cuban people since it did not benefit them at all. So, why would the left not be for this? Oh, I know why. It is because President Trump did it and everything he does must be wrong.
Cuba is a communist country which means any money that would be made would only benefit the dictator that runs the country. Until Cuba is free from the communist regime the people will never benefit from any deals. Of course, the left will protest and they will call Trump a racist, but he was right about this and I stand with him.
