Russia says Trump is using 'Cold War rhetoric' on Cuba

But Trump vowed that trade and other penalties would stay in place until a long list of prerequisites is met.

The Obama policy is likely to be revised rather than reversed entirely. The government remained willing to engage in "respectful dialogue", it said in a statement. He will not break the diplomatic ties Obama worked so carefully to restore, nor does he plan to impose new trade sanctions.

"It would be more effective to continue an open line of communication and working relationship with a government in need of democratic assistance, instead of shutting them out", Boozman said.

Cuba later denounced the move as a setback in U.S.

"To the Cuban government, I say: Put an end to the abuse of dissidents", Trump said.

Rhodes also called out Florida politicians "who will go down in history having embraced Trump and hurt Cubans", pointing to an Associated Press report that Trump's posturing had pleased US opponents in Cuba.

Trump delivered remarks on his policy and hinted to his long-terms goals for U.S.

However, Trump has threatened to undo any deal Washington made with Havana if Cuba fails to take steps to improve the lives of the Cuban people.

The statement on Sunday added, "It's clear the anti-Cuba discourse is still widely needed".

Hodgkinson, a 66-year-old former home builder and lead removal contractor, had run-ins with police but no felony convictions. Not mentioned: In 2002, according to police records, Hodgkinson became the foster father of a girl whom he allegedly abused.

Nor does the measure affect the ability of Cuban-Americans to travel freely to the island and send money to relatives there, or a broad array of rules the Obama administration put in place aimed at making it easier for U.S. companies to do business in Cuba.

The president's speech to Cuban exiles in Miami has also dismayed moderates who were working with pro-engagement Americans but now fear association with a policy of open hostility toward the communist system could make them targets for repression.

Just a year back the then US President Barack Obama, loosened travel restrictions on to Cuba which allowed individuals and groups to go to the island nation for educational purposes. He's also a co-sponsor of legislation that would eliminate restrictions on travel to Cuba by American citizens and legal residents. "We will continue working with the administration to minimize any impact on the traveling public", the group's Vaughn Jennings told Bloomberg BNA in a statement.

Under Trump's order, the Treasury and Commerce Departments will be given 30 days to begin writing new regulations and they will not take effect until they are complete.

"Our policy will seek a much better deal for the Cuban people and for the United States of America", Trump said in Miami's Little Havana on Friday. Trump's speech evoked, instead, the Cold War thinking that dominated the USA government's stance toward Cuba for a half-century.

The Cuban government maintained that the new policies would not work, comparing it to the economic embargo that never ushered the Castro regime out of power as the USA had hoped.

"This is the simple truth of the Castro regime", Trump said.

But other advisers have contended that it is important to make good on a campaign promise to Cuban-Americans.
