Miguel Fraga, First Secretary of the Cuban Embassy in Washington D.C., discusses U.S-Cuban relations in the past, present, and the desired future.

Presidents Barack Obama and Raúl Castro took extraordinary steps to normalize relations between the United States and Cuba. They met, restored diplomatic ties, and eased travel restrictions. Now Cuba has a new president, Miguel Díaz-Canel.  As the Trump administration moves to reverse these changes, how is Cuba changing with respect to constitutional change, economic reform, and U.S.-Cuban relations?
