Trump allows law suits against acuban businesses

The Trump administration announced Wednesday it will allow U.S. citizens to sue foreign businesses using property seized during the 1959 Cuban revolution, reversing two decades of policy as it escalates pressure on the communist island nation.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said the administration will not renew a prohibition on lawsuits in a decision that also sets up a showdown with European nations and other allies whose companies do business in Cuba.

“Sadly, Cuba’s most prominent export these days is not cigars or rum. It’s oppression,” Pompeo said during brief remarks at the State Department. “Detente with the regime has failed. Cozying up to Cuban dictators will always be a black mark on this great nation’s long record of defending human rights.”
