Perlmutter Statement on President Trump’s change in U.S. policy towards Cuba
Washington, D.C. – U.S. Rep. Ed Perlmutter (CO-07) released the following statement on President Trump’s change in U.S. policy towards Cuba.
“President Trump’s reversal on Cuba is unfortunate and shortsighted. As someone who had the privilege of traveling to Cuba with President Obama, I saw firsthand how the country has a desire for openness and information. There's so much economic potential for Colorado industries such as agriculture, renewable energy and biotechnology that stand to benefit from the normalized relations with Cuba and now those opportunities are in doubt.”
