Trump Threatens to Reverse Obama's Cuba Policy Unless Cuba Makes a 'Better Deal'

Trump tweeted that he wants a "better deal" for the Cuban people.

During the campaign, Trump said he planned to roll back Obama's executive actions on Cuba, which include allowing direct flights between the two countries and lifting limits on the amount of cigars and rum that American travelers can bring back to the U.S. for personal consumption, unless the Cuban government grants more political freedom to its people.

“I think President-elect Trump has been pretty clear," Priebus said on "Fox News Sunday." "There’s nothing wrong with talking to people. He's been willing to talk to anybody, but we've got to have a better deal. We're not going to have a unilateral deal coming from Cuba back to the United States without some changes in their government.”

“He’s already said that is going to be the case and what the deal is, is to be determined,” Priebus said.

The president-elect later released an official statement calling Castro a "brutal dictator," leaving little doubt how he felt about his leadership.

President Obama’s statement on Castro’s death struck a different tone, emphasizing the United States’ friendship toward the Cuban people and saying of Castro that, “History will record and judge the enormous impact of this singular figure on the people and world around him.”
