President Donald Trump is expected to travel to Miami as early as next Friday to announce a new Cuba policy that could tighten rules on trade and travel to the island eased by his predecessor Barack Obama, according to a U.S. official and two people familiar with the matter.
Trump’s aides were nearing completion of a comprehensive review of Cuba policy and are expected to send recommendations to his national security team and then to the president in coming days, a U.S. official said.
Plans were in the works for Trump to roll out his new approach next Friday in a speech in Miami but a delay is still possible if it takes longer to make a decision, according to people familiar with the discussions.
