S President Donald Trump lifted travel restrictions from Cuba and lifted some travel restrictions on Wednesday, allowing Americans to visit and spend time in the island nation.
Trump tweeted: “My administration is taking the necessary steps to reinstate normal travel to the U.N. and to all countries.”
Cuba, the world’s largest economy, has struggled with a chronic economic recession, which has seen the number of Cubans seeking to leave the country plunge to a six-year low.
The Cuban government has sought to blame Trump and others for the downturn and said the U!s actions hurt U.F.C.S.’s interests.
