    In an election ploy to ensure he still gets the anti-Castro vote, Trump ramps up the sanctions to target tourism.

    The US administration has suspended all private charter flights between the United States and Cuba. Last October the US banned regular scheduled flights to all cities in communist-run Cuba except Havana.

    At a ceremony honoring Bay of Pigs veterans, Trump  banned U.S. citizens from bringing home rum or cigars from Cuba and from staying at Cuban government-owned hotels, as he sought to lock in the Cuban-American vote in the swing state of Florida.

    I do not know what they are celebrating because that invasion was a complete defeat for the USA, and the prisoners or veterans had to be exchanged for baby foods, and many of them have died. Those sanctions had existed for a long time, they are not new, with the new diplomatic relation established by Barrack Obama US citizens were only allowed to bring to the USA around $100.00 worth of Cuban goods. Canada and Mexico sell a lot of Cuban products, and there are many Canadians living in Cuba, and many Europeans tourists are travelling toward Cuba and at the present time there are not too many peoples travelling to Cuba or buying Cuban products, therefore, this is only part of his  electoral campaign and it is not going to produce a great effect on the Cuban economy

    In the Dominican Republic, there are several cigars company which learned how to make cigars similar to the Cuban cigars, and some of them travelled to Cuba to learn how to make it, and those cigars are widely sold and distributed in the USA, and the Puerto Ricans produce a rum named Barrilito which is much better than Habana Club, and Haiti produces Barbacount 5 stars, and they are also widely distributed in the East coast, as well Jamaica and the Dominican Republic made good rum. Probably, peoples travelling to the Caribbean islands are going to buy Cuban Habana Club and they will pour it  into an empty bottle of other brands
