Trump said, in front of a crowd in the area (Little Havana) in Miami attended by Republican Senator Marco Rubio from Florida , who helped in the drafting of the new restrictions on Cuba "will not be silent in the face of Communist oppression anymore."

The government confirmed in a statement , reiterated its willingness «to continue respectful dialogue and cooperation on issues of common concern».
