Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau heads to Cuba Tuesday as the breakthrough in U.S. relations with the communist regime hangs in the balance following Donald Trump's presidential election win.Trump has sent mixed messages about the thaw in U.S.-Cuba relations which was started two years ago by his predecessor.Kirk said the journey is a personal one for Trudeau who is retracing his father's footsteps, as well as a reminder to Washington of Canada's support for ending Cuba's isolation.The Cuba visit will be the first by a Canadian leader since Jean Chretien in 1998 . Today, Cuba continues to welcome a huge influx of Canadian vacationers each year (1.3 million or nearly 40 percent of all Cuba tourists), but bilateral trade remains modest at less than U.S.$1 billion annually.
