Description

During the Obama administration, optimism swelled in U.S.-Cuba relations. On Dec. 17, 2014, the U.S. announced that it would end its policy of hostility and look to engage Cuba. This has led to the restoration of full diplomatic ties, Cuba being removed from the U.S. State Department terrorism list and an agreement to allow commercial air flights between the two countries for the first time in fifty years.

With the change in U.S. administrations in 2016, this optimism turned to pessimism as President Trump threatened to roll back the Obama administration rapprochement. Ultimately, the Trump administration's policies, while leaving key parts of the Obama-era policy intact, reinstate restrictions on Americans traveling to Cuba and U.S. business dealings with the military-run conglomerate.

The recent release detailing these new constraints leaves room for debate on how they will affect the future relationship between the two countries.
