A Manipulating Anachronism Relating to Cuba

I Talk to Presidents

The re-opening of the U.S. Embassy in Havana in 2015, followed by President Obama’s subsequent visit, promised renewed diplomatic relations between the U.S. and Cuba. While travel restrictions were lifted and U.S. tourism to Cuba and diplomatic meetings increased over the period of 2015-2016, the election of President Donald J. Trump (and his indecision about “the deal”) has slowed progress between the neighboring nations to a snail’s pace. Continue reading
