Pence: Cuba executive orders will be overturned
Mike Pence on Friday vowed a Trump administration would overturn President Barack Obama’s measures to expand ties to Cuba, seeking to court members of the Cuban-American community here that still loathe the Castro regime.
“When Donald Trump and I take to the White House, we will reverse Barack Obama’s executive orders on Cuba,” the GOP vice presidential nominee said at a Miami-Dade County Republican Party dinner.
The Indiana governor also promised a Trump administration would maintain the five decade-long trade embargo until “real religious and political freedom” comes to the communist island nation.
