Hillary Clinton should decide where she stands on the Cuban embargo

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.
Newsweek had a story last week alleging that Trump Inc violated the law in Cuba back in the 1990’s. Naturally, the Clinton campaign has criticized Mr. Trump of violating the law.    
Let me be clear that the embargo should be enforced or the law changed. Therefore, I call on Democrats to tell us where they stand with respect to the embargo and Cuba.    
My friends at Capitol Hill Cubans have a suggestion for Mrs. Clinton and President Obama:
First of all, it’s great to see Hillary finally recognize that business with Cuba’s regime contradicts U.S. law and values. Moreover, that it flouts and contradicts the national interests of the United States.
She should immediately send a memo to The White House.
More importantly and consistently, Hillary should immediately demand that President Obama fully enforce Cuba sanctions and not allow American business and travelers to flout U.S. law.
Akin to the accusation against Seven Arrows, Hillary should immediately seek OFAC enforcement against all American travelers lying on their affidavits on regularly scheduled flights to Varadero, Cayo Coco, and Cayo Largo, and staying at the Cuban military’s all-inclusive beach resorts. These trips violate U.S. law.
Hillary should seek OFAC enforcement against Starwood Hotels management deal with the Cuban military’s, Gaviota, S.A., which is contrary and inconsistent with U.S. law, traffics in stolen American property and violates international labor law.
Hillary should seek OFAC enforcement against Stonegate Bank and Banco Popular de Puerto Rico for issuing credit cards that provide financing of transactions through stolen properties, which is in direct violation of U.S. law.
Of course, all of this is an issue because Florida is a key swing state and Cubans a major voting bloc. Also, Cubans are the Hispanics who vote…. no turnout problem!
Mrs. Clinton has a major problem with Cuban-Americans because she supports President Obama’s decision to open up Cuba, an opening that has done nothing to improve the people in the island or help the U.S. citizens who had their property stolen by the communist regime.
So let’s come clean on Cuba. Mr. Trump, to his credit, wants to hold the Cuban regime accountable for its lousy human rights record. Where is Mrs. Clinton on this? So far she’s dancing around the issue!
P.S. You can listen to my show (Canto Talk) and follow me on Twitter.
