HAVANA TIMES – The Trump administration ordered Monday a new broadside against Cuban families, further hindering remittances from the US. The candidate for reelection makes no waves about hurting ordinary Cubans when tightening the screws on the Havana government.
For decades, the US embargo has sought to get Cubans to cry uncle and rebel against their government, blaming it for hard times. It hasn’t worked. The Castros and their Communist Party have remained in power for 61 years and running.
The anti-Castro activists in Miami see the hardline as a reason to campaign for Trump. Most analysts believe that in hotly contested Florida, such is the real interest behind the sanctions. It has little to do with a commitment for democracy or any type of progress for the Cuban people.
