The Trump administration Wednesday intensified its crackdown on Cuba, Nicaragua and Venezuela, rolling back Obama administration policy and announcing new restrictions and sanctions against the three countries whose leaders national security adviser John Bolton dubbed the "three stooges of socialism".Bolton announced a new cap on the amount of money families in the United States can send their relatives in Cuba. Remittances to Cuba from the United States amounted to $3 billion in 2016, according to the State Department.He said the United States would also further restrict "nonfamily" travel by Americans to Cuba -- though he offered no details.Bolton spoke just hours after Secretary of State Mike Pompeo announced in Washington a new policy that allows lawsuits against foreign firms operating on properties Cuba seized from Americans after the 1959 revolution. The United States has enforced a trade blockade against Cuba since the early '60s.
