Fulfilling his campaign promise to reverse the previous Obama administration's re-engagement with Havana, Trump announced stricter regulations on USA travelers to Cuba and a clampdown on business dealings with the Cuban Armed Forces Business Enterprises Group.
Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kansas) says President Donald Trump's new Cuba policy closes off a potentially lucrative market for American farmers.
Its statement takes a swipe at the United States under Trump by noting issues that negatively affect Americans, including racial discrimination and gun violence, and controversial policies on immigration, a border wall and abandoning the Paris Agreement on climate change.
The "wet foot, dry foot" policy, which once let most Cuban migrants stay if they made it to USA soil but was terminated under Obama, is to remain terminated.
Gardner said the administration's new policies mean it's up to the Cuban government to lift its own restrictions on the Cuban people before the United States further thaws relations between the two countries.
Members of Cuba's small but vibrant independent civil society say they fear the new policy will do more harm than good. "That could bring them under fire now, and they could find themselves much weaker". Chris Murphy, D-Conn., tweeted Saturday - do the opposite of what President Barack Obama would have done.

Aguilar plays outfield for the Democratic team; before the shooting , Scalise was slated to play second base for the Republicans. He also said that Officer Crystal Griner, who was shot in the ankle, is in "good condition".
In fact, Trump is getting bipartisan support for his call to bring back Shakur to USA soil.
The Cuban government has withstood the USA trade embargo for more than a half century and will not make any political concessions to the United States due to economic pressure, said Mr Carlos Alzugaray, a retired Cuban diplomat.
It's for the Cuban people to decide whatever changes are necessary in the island. "Freeing Americans to travel and conduct education and business interactions with any nation as freely as we are permitted to do so with every other country in the world should not be a privilege for a few-it is a basic human right because after all, travel is inherently educational". I'd transcribe it in the history books.
But the overwhelming majority of the Cuban economy is controlled by the government. Americans would no longer be able to stay in USA -based hotels that operate in Cuba.
The changes that Trump has announced will have an impact on the Cuban economy within three months, once the new regulations are put in place. "This will galvanize things".
"We will enforce the ban on tourism", Trump told an enthusiastic crowd at Miami's Manuel Artime Theater in Little Havana.
The Castro government is certain to reject Trump's list of demands, which includes releasing political prisoners, halting what the USA says is abuse of dissidents and allowing greater freedom of expression. "After detente the people felt hopeful but there were no changes".
Since then, improvements have been made in U.S.
Jonny Lopez De la Cruz, a 77-year-old Bay of Pigs veteran, said he was overcome with "great emotion", adding that the Cuban people deserve freedom after 58 years of suffering.
