President Donald Trump announced his plan to roll back Obama-era policies regarding U.S.-Cuba relations on Friday, and now the Cuban ambassador to the U.S. is trolling him for it.
“#Cuba Now it is official: these are the new enemies of US Foreign Policy. Watch out!!” José Ramón Cabañas wrote in a now-deleted tweet featuring a photo of what appears to be a family of tourists walking by a street vendor, according to The Hill.
The tweet came just hours after Trump delivered his speech announcing the new restrictions in Miami’s predominantly Cuban neighborhood of Little Havana on Friday afternoon.
“We will not be silent in the face of communist oppression any longer,” Trump said in the speech. Effective immediately, I am canceling the last administration’s completely one-sided deal with Cuba.”
However, the Associated Press reports that the policy, with its stated aim of restricting the amount of U.S. dollars paid to the Castro regime, leaves in place “most of the important elements of President Barack Obama’s moves to open relations with the island.”
