He announced his government's Cuba policy, which rolls back the progress achieved over the last two years since December 17, 2014, when Presidents Raúl Castro and Barack Obama announced the decision to re-establish diplomatic relations and engage in a process towards the normalization of bilateral relations.
United President Donald Trump's speech on Cuba was a "grotesque spectacle" straight out of the Cold War and will strengthen patriotism on the island, Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez said at a news conference on Monday.
Lawrence Ward, a partner at the global law firm Dorsey & Whitney in Washington, said that while what Trump said "was a direct rebuke of the Obama administration's loosening of sanctions against Cuba", the announcement did not "make clear precisely what will change and how, but does emphasize that the United States does not want to enrich and empower the Cuban military".
President Trumpsays that Cuba's bad human rights record justifies a return to Cuba sanctions and travel prohibitions. The Directive also conceded that the blockade is an obsolete policy and that it should be lifted.
Trump has called for the strictest application of all US law regarding tourism to Cuba, trade, and investment.

"If we come again, we will probably sneak in", she said.
The US policy on Cuba has been a failure, as admitted even by Obama himself after he chose to normalize US diplomatic relations with Cuba in 2015.
At the other end of the spectrum, the UNWTO said it condemns the U.S. Administration's decision to restore travel restrictions with Cuba, issuing a statement expressing its "firm resentment" over the decision. Cuba has not renounced these principles, nor will it ever do so.
Cuba would "continue the respectful dialogue and the cooperation in matters of common interest", it said. Many work in tourism: setting up restaurants in their homes, driving tourists around town in their decades-old cars, or acting as translators or tour guides.
The Castro dictatorship changed from Fidel to Raul, but that's only a matter of stationery, not policy and improvements for the Cuban people.
"Cuban tourism isn't exclusively dependent on the U.S. market, but it's an increasingly important market", says Michael Bustamante, an assistant professor of history at Florida International University.
