CUBA, 18 December 2018 - President Miguel Díaz-Canel, issued remarks Sunday blaming “the impact of the embargo, which has strengthened under the Trump administration,” for nationwide shortages of bread, eggs, and other basic goods as Cubans prepare to celebrate the new year and the 60th anniversary of the Cuban Revolution

The president, reports Breitbart, blames Cuba's "complex economic situation" and stresses that the effects of the embargo with the USA must not be understated. The official news outlet of Cuba's communist party, Granma, goes on to say that under President Trump, the situation in Cuba has become even more severe as the White House distances itself away from the Obama administration's work to develop a closer relationship with Cuban antities.
