Cuba's government has denounced US President Donald Trump's decision to roll back on policy changes towards the island nation.

In a statement read out on the evening news Friday, the Cuban Communist government said Trump was resorting to "coercive methods of the past" that hurt the Cuban people and prevented economic development but would not weaken the revolution. American (AAL), Delta (DAL), JetBlue (JBLU), Southwest (LUV), United (UAL) and Alaska Airlines (ALK) are the US carriers now offering flights to Cuba.

Trump's address in Miami announced changes in the United States' policy toward Cuba after the Obama administration chose to normalize relations with the island nation following a decades-long freeze of diplomatic ties.

However, Marriott International 's planned operations in Cuba may depend on the Trump administration's regulations, the hotel company said in a statement.

Diplomatic relations, restored only two years ago, are to remain intact.

Steven Zelkowitz, the managing shareholder and co-chair at the hospitality industry group at GrayRobinson law firm, thinks hotel development in Cuba will decrease because of Trump's policy.

"Further U.S. disengagement opens up opportunities for countries like Iran, Russia, North Korea and China to gain influence on an island 90 miles off our coast", Crawford said. US airlines and cruise ships will still be allowed to serve the island 90 miles south of Florida.

On Friday Trump ordered tighter restrictions on Americans traveling the Caribbean island and a crackdown on USA business dealings with the Cuban military.

In a statement Friday, Moran says.

Moreover, Obama's efforts allowed Americans to use credit and debit cards in the country and to send money to relatives in Cuba from the United States.

And while his policy has the stated aim of helping the country's nascent private sector, it contains a measure that could damage thousands of small-business people who host, feed and transport independent American travelers to Cuba. "Now it turns out that the anti-Cuban discourse is still in high demand", the Russian Foreign Ministry said.

Trump called for changes in Cuba, including the release of political prisoners, the holding of free and fair elections and respect for the freedom of speech and assembly. He was killed during a gunfight after a traffic stop on the New Jersey Turnpike in 1973.

Rhodes isn't the only Obama administration veteran who seems to be experiencing personal pain as Trump strips away portions of the 44th president's legacy - on immigration, trade, the environment and, perhaps, health care.

For ordinary Cuban citizens, the announcement from the US President Donald Trump was a shocker.

"Trump's become the independent business people's new enemy because - even though he's said he wants to help entrepreneurs - this new policy alienates entrepreneurs from the government", said Angel Rodriguez, a 27-year-old sociologist who works with the Catholic Church in entrepreneurship-training programs.

He has challenged Cuba to "come to the table" to strike a deal that serves both country's interests. "I am announcing a new policy, just as I promised in the campaign".
