|This is just another example of the Trump Administration undoing everything that Obama did. There's no logical reason why we can't get along with Cuba - they don't pose a threat to us and haven't for 50 years. We made peace with Vietnam - why can't we make peace with Cuba? And the Cuban government has taken steps to allow Cubans to own and operate their own businesses - baby steps on the road to capitalism over communism, but steps in the right direction. |
There's a program on CNBC called "The Profit", which is basically about an entrepreneur who helps failing businesses. They did a show last year where they explored some of the new businesses that were sprouting in Cuba - restaurants, hotels, bakeries, etc. that were not state-owned but were privately owned. It was eye-opening to see what the Cuban people were doing, and the possibilities for working with America and Americans - both with trade and travel - were obvious.
Trump shut that down out of spite because in his mind, anything that Obama did has to be undone. His goal is to erase Obama from American history. God willing, Trump will just be a footnote to future historian's discussions about the Obama presidency.
