President-elect Donald Trump on Monday threatened to scrap efforts taken by President Barack Obama aimed at slowly normalizing relations between the US and Cuba.

"If Cuba is unwilling to make a better deal for the Cuban people, the Cuban/American people and the U.S. as a whole, I will terminate deal," Trump wrote on Twitter.

Better deal = Trump Hotel in Havana operating tax free for the next 100 years. Conflicts of interest are for the little people.

Why not?

He has already shown that he doesn't need it to be legal to do business in Cuba.

Laws, like transparency and conflict of interest compliance is for the little people to worry about.

Better deal=:

Reince Priebus, the incoming chief of staff to Trump, told Fox News on Sunday that Trump would demand certain "changes" be made by the Cuban government.

"Repression, open markets, freedom of religion, political prisoners -- these things need to change in order to have open and free relationships, and that's what President-elect Trump believes, and that's where he's going to head," Priebus said.

Yeah, you are right Lfthnd, Danni and 726, these are really bad things to require for normalization of relations with Cuba.

I assume Dear Leader won't be applying similar standards to the oppressive thugocracies in China, Russia, etc., etc., etc.

Wow Doc, that deflection was weak even by your standards.

Your response is truly pathetic.
But, then, you Trumpeteers are very selective about such matters.
How could it be otherwise when you harken to a thug?

Didn't vote for him, never supported him, just enjoying your obvious distress that the Billary landslide never occurred.

WHY?

Can someone give one good reason why the USA should not have normalized relations with Cuba, a country 90 miles from our shore? Sorry, one SANE reason?

He wants to scrap the deal because it didn't give a controlling interest to his corporate buddies, like it was in the 50's.
