Trump Set To Impose Tougher Restrictions On Cuba
Cuba is bracing for the impact of a one-two punch from the Trump administration: stricter travel rules and an official warning about visiting the island.

The U.S. is expected to soon publish new regulations that will make it tougher for Americans to travel to Cuba. President Trump announced the rules over the summer, keeping with his campaign promise to crack down on the Communist government.

But the rules will also come in the wake of a new warning issued by the State Department for Americans visiting Cuba following a series of bizarre attacks on U.S. diplomats in Havana.

Some fear that the administration’s moves will deliver a major blow to Cuba’s economy and tourism industry, which are already reeling from a hurricane that tore through the island last month.
