US bars airline flights to all Cuban airports except Havana

The Trump administration said Friday that it would bar U.S. airlines from flying to all destinations in Cuba besides Havana starting on Dec. 10. The Transportation Department said it was taking the action at the request of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to ’further the administration’s policy of strengthening the economic consequences to the Cuban regime’ and its support for Nicolas Maduro.

... Alright here's where I get into a bit of a Fitz... why only punish certain authoritarians but work with others. If you want to economically punish nations for their regimes for not prioritizing Western values then you gotta do it across the board man. Otherwise it's kind of Hypocritical.

That's what passes for "relevant" foreign policy in Trump's delusional world. A "master stroke".
