Donald Trump tweeted his threat to cancel the Cuba deal


President-elect Donald Trump announced on Twitter on Monday he would "terminate" the "Cuba deal" unless Cuba made a better one.

President Obama restored diplomatic relations with Cuba in 2014, and U.S. citizens have been allowed to travel to Cuba since. 

Trump's tweets echo what his chief of staff Reince Priebus said on Fox News Sunday. 

"There's going to have to be some movement from Cuba in order to have a relationship with the United States," Priebus said.

Here's Trump's tweet on the deal.

After the death of Fidel Castro, Trump pledged to ensure liberty for Cubans.
