Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump vowed to reverse improved U.S. relations with Cuba unless the island nation meets his demands for more religious and political freedom.

Trump’s comments at a Friday rally in Miami mark a reversal of his previous position. He told the Daily Caller in September 2015 that he was “fine” with “the concept of opening with Cuba.”
