Trump Unveils New Cuba Sanctions (On Alcohol & Tobacco) In "Fight Against Communist Oppression"

The trade restrictions against Cuba have been prolonged for another year, with President Trump citing "the national interest of the United States" on Wednesday. Specifically the ban on Cuban imports of tobacco and alcohol have been extended, and the tourism industry has been targeted.

Trump said at a mid-morning White House event:

"Today, as part of our continuing fight against communist oppression, I am announcing that the Treasury Department will prohibit US travellers from staying at properties owned by the Cuban government. We're also further restricting the importation of alcohol and Cuban tobacco."
