Trump obtained in 2016 the second worst result of Cuban votes in Florida among the Republican candidates. Hostility and measures to economically asphyxiate Cuba do not favor his election interests and affect Cubans heavily, wrote the diplomat on Twitter.
In 2019, the US government increased its hostile actions, imposing additional obstacles on foreign trade and increasing “the persecution of our banking financial relations with the rest of the world.”
Among the recent measures are the imposition of a thousand-dollar limit per quarter to the monetary remittance a person from the United States can send to Cuba, and the elimination of the permission to carry out U-turn bank transactions.
There is also the restriction on all flights from the United States to any Cuban air terminals excepting Havana.
