Type: HypocrisyJun 16 2017 Severity: Targeted: Obama AdministrationAbout: Cuba
Trump called Obama's deal "one-sided" among other things, which only further intensified already rocky relations with the Cuban government. He also said in a speech which followed his signing of a new directive toward Cuba "We now hold the cards. The previous administration's easing of restrictions of travel and trade does not help the Cuban people. They only enrich the Cuban regime." Even though strong words were said, his directive hardly changed anything from the previous policy set by Obama.
