Trump to reveal new Cuba policy in speech next Friday

  |   World News

President Donald Trump is expected to reveal his administration's new policy toward Cuba in a speech in Miami next Friday, according to two US officials.

Trump is due to roll back portions of the Obama-era policies softening relations with Cuba, CNN reported in May. Officials previously said that Trump will likely announce the United States will no longer make unilateral concessions to Cuba, which is what critics accused the Obama administration of doing.

Miami has long been an enclave for anti-Castro Cuban exiles. US officials said Trump is likely to blast the Cuban government for human rights abuses and impose sanctions on officials suspected of carrying out the repression of dissidents.

The officials also previously said Trump is expected to demand that US fugitives of justice, such as Assata Shakur, who received political asylum on the island after being convicted of killing a New Jersey state trooper and escaping from a US prison, be extradited.
