Cuba: Trump administration bans popular forms of tourist travel

The Trump administration on Tuesday implemented new travel restrictions for US citizens heading to Cuba, eliminating some of the most commons ways American tourists visit the country — including organized group travel and cruise ship visits.

Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin in a statement attributed the limitations to Cuba’s “destabilizing role” in the Western Hemisphere, including the county’s support of Venezuelan dictator Nicolás Maduro.

“This administration has made a strategic decision to reverse the loosening of sanctions and other restrictions on the Cuban regime,” Mnuchin said. “These actions will help to keep U.S. dollars out of the hands of Cuban military, intelligence, and security services.”
