Trump to announce plan to stop cash flow to Cuban military

"I am confident the president will keep his commitment on Cuba policy by making changes that are targeted and strategic and which advance the Cuban people's aspirations for economic and political liberty", Florida Senator Marco Rubio said in a statement.

The Treasury Department will have 90 days to implement these changes, according to the Miami Herald, which was briefed on Trump's planned announcement scheduled for Friday. "That the largest hotel company in the world, a competitor, is not allowed to renew its license" to operate in the country? asked Julia Sweig, a longtime Cuba scholar and former adviser to Starwood who has called for normalizing relations with the island.

Groups such as the U.S. Agriculture Coalition for Cuba and Engage Cuba say that ending the U.S. trade embargo, which originated during the Cold War, will empower Cubans and lead to improved commercial ties.

But even as he curbs Obama's détente with Cuba, Trump will stop short of closing embassies or breaking off diplomatic relations restored in 2015 after more than five decades of hostility, USA officials said.

Educational trips will reportedly be required to travel with a guide from a USA sponsoring organization, according to the Herald.

"Any ban on using military-owned tourism facilities would make it very hard to bring groups larger than seven people, because for logistical reasons you need to work with the government", said Collin Laverty, president of Cuba Educational Travel. Bob Menendez. Trump will announce the policy changes Friday in Miami.

"The goal of these policies is very simple", Rubio said in a message posted on Facebook.

Polls suggest most Americans support the liberalized policy towards Cuba pushed by the Obama administration.

Even with carve outs, the new policy could pose problems for some USA businesses, including hoteliers and airlines who have put on regular flights between the U.S. and the Cuban capital.

Trump's new policy will ban transactions with the Grupo de Administracion Empresarial S.A., a business controlled by the Cuban military.

"All of the problems between the two countries need to end so she can go to the U.S. Embassy and say, 'I want to see my son, ' buy a ticket and go for the weekend", Reinoso said.

The moves come after the US made steps to engage Cuba during the Obama administration. An expert on Cuban travel told Politico that roughly 60 percent of all businesses in Cuba and 80 percent of all hotels on the island are run by the business arm of the country's military, meaning that even if you can find an exemption for traveling to Cuba, you might not be able to find anywhere to stay.

Since then, improvements have been made in U.S. -Cuba diplomatic and trade ties, and the island has experienced an worldwide tourism "boom" receiving a record 4.1 million visitors in 2016.

Officials said the money which they infused into Cuba from U.S had increased the benefits of tourism and business deals.

Various business and advocacy groups, however, including Human Rights Watch, remain opposed to any reining back.

A former British ambassador to Cuba, Paul Hare, who lectures at Boston University's Pardee School of Global Studies, said the military was viewed as a guardian of the Revolution.

Trump has long hanged his understanding of the deal between the United States and Cuba on his "Cuban friends" in Florida, whom he said throughout the campaign supported him over Democrat Hillary Clinton.
