President Donald Trump has announced new rules that will take away some of the freedoms Americans now enjoy to travel to Cuba. In Miami Friday afternoon, Trump said Americans can no longer travel as individuals in person-to-person exchanges to one of Florida’s nearest international neighbors.

St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman said that will hurt everyday Cubans.

President Trump brought a fiery taste of the Cold War back to Miami today when he announced his new Cuba policy. But is his Cuba crackdown likely to leverage the democratic changes he promised?

Participants in the Conference on Prosperity and Security in Central America were welcomed to the Florida International University (FIU) Modesto Maidique campus on Thursday by protesters.
