The future of U.S.-Cuba relations

Listen 00:49:32

Guests: Damien Cave, Richard Feinberg, Carlos Eire

What does the death of Fidel Castro and the rise of Donald Trump mean for America’s relationship with Cuba?  President Obama’s executive action pursuing normalization signaled big changes ahead in America’s attitude towards Cuba. But Trump has claimed that he wants to undue Obama’s decision. In this hour of Radio Times, we’ll discuss the current state of openness between our countries, and how President-elect Trump might change that relationship.  We’ll begin by talking with The New York Times’ DAMIEN CAVE, who’s been following Trump’s claims that he will terminate the Cuba deal.  Then, we’ll be joined by RICHARD FEINBERG, to talk about the growing economic ties between the two countries.  And lastly, we’ll be joined by Cuban refugee, Castro critic, and Yale history professor CARLOS EIRE to get his perspective.
