President Donald Trump touted the new executive order he signed on his administration's policy regarding Cuba in a tweet Friday writing, "Back from Miami where my Cuban/American friends are very happy with what I signed today. Another campaign promise that I did not forget!"
On Friday, Trump signed an executive order that reversed several parts of policies enacted by former President Barack Obama. Trump's order restricts the flow of U.S. dollars to Cuba's military, security and intelligence services as well as travel by Americans to the islands.
The move was hailed by fellow Republicans, including Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham and Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, who said the new policy "aligns the United States with the Cuban people."
