Cuba: U.S. Policy Overview [Updated January 25, 2021]
Library of Congress. Congressional Research Service
Sullivan, Mark P.
From the Document: "Since the early 1960s, when the United States imposed a trade embargo on Cuba, the centerpiece of U.S. policy toward Cuba has consisted of economic sanctions aimed at isolating the Cuban government. [...] President Trump unveiled his Administration's Cuba policy in 2017, introducing new sanctions and rolling back efforts to normalize relations. By 2019, the Administration had largely abandoned engagement and, from 2019 to January 2021, significantly increased sanctions (see discussion below)-especially on travel and remittances-to pressure the Cuban government on human rights and for its support of the Venezuelan government of Nicolás Maduro. Most observers expect the Biden Administration to shift U.S. policy toward Cuba back to focusing on engagement and away from the numerous sanctions imposed in recent years. During the U.S. election campaign, President Biden said he would reverse Trump Administration policies, maintaining they harmed the Cuban people without advancing democracy and human rights."
