This came from President Trump’s Twitter feed 50 minutes ago. A total embargo on Cuba similar if not exactly what happened during the Cuban missile crisis .

Battery is dying I’ll update in a little bit .

twitter.com...



Embargoes ban any trade whatsoever between the US and Cuba. Other nations can sign can't sign on also .

If the embargo fails the next step would be a blockade which involves the use of force and would also cut off supplies from anyone in the world to Cuba .

If Russia was going to use force in Venezuela. Cuba would be the staging area .

The few airplanes with Russian troops wouldn't be enough for military intervention .

Probably because Maduro was supposedly heading that way.

Cigars..lol.
Ya, his followers will see it as 3d chess, a few won't, those capable of critical though over some kind of blind acceptance of everything his nibs does.

You mean escape to Cuba?
That makes this a bit more interesting if so.

Pretty obvious, Cuba supports Maduro. It's a good reason.

Heard it on Bret Baier's show a few minutes ago.

So if true, you may want to reconsider your Trump voter attacks, and discuss this potential development for the embargo.

Cuba makes billions from Canadian and European companies that the Cuban regime allows to steal from the people.

They have plenty...At least the Cuban regime does.

What does Cuba get from us? I thought it was already a sh'ithole country, that couldn't get much crappier.

Yes.

But would he flee there to just live out his days, or would he broker a deal with Cuba to return with some help.

Cuba was the United States' 127th largest goods export market in 2015.

U.S. goods exports to Cuba in 2015 were $180 million, down 40% ($119 million) from 2014 and down 51% from 2005.

The top export categories (2-digit HS) in 2015 were: meat ($78 million), food waste, animal feed ($44 million), miscellaneous grain, seeds, fruit ($22 million), miscellaneous chemical products ($13 million), and inorganic chemicals ($9 million).

U.S. exports of agricultural products to Cuba totaled $150 million in 2015. Leading categories include: poultry ($78 million), soybean meal ($55 million), soybeans ($10 million), corn ($5 million), and dairy products ($412 thousand).

Buy it from a Canadian or European. They have no problem exploiting oppressed people in order to protect their vacation spot. I'm sure they have a few cigars lying around.

Currently there is a 13% fee to exchange usd for Cuban pesos, a lot of Americans go to Cuba via cruse ships. US credit cards are no good in Cuba.

So we're going to starve them into compliance... awesome.

What happened to making America great again?
