In light of President Trump’s announcement that he would double down on the Cuban embargo that failed to force Havana to capitulate for nearly six decades, the question is not whether Cuban society will change. It has and it will. It is whether the Cuban people can count on America as a partner or an adversary as it does.

The president characterized Friday’s announcement as “canceling” the Obama administration’s “deal” with Cuba. In fact, he announced the broad outlines of a policy that tightens the travel restrictions and enforcement of the ineffective and counterproductive embargo.
