Press Release

Washington, D.C. – Congressman Jeff Duncan (SC) released the following statement after the Trump Administration’s reversal of several Obama-era Cuba policies:

“I applaud President Trump’s move to tighten restrictions against the Cuban government. We must stand with the Cuban people and heroic dissidents who are continually fighting for their freedom from the communist Castro regime. We should not be traveling to Cuba and conducting business with Cuban controlled government or military entities when they are persecuting their own people. Their neglect for human rights is concerning, and I am thankful the Trump Administration is working to reverse part of President Obama’s misguided Cuba policy.”
