Clinton hits Trump over Cuba embargo 'violation'

Newsweek magazine said it studied documents that show the Trump company spent at least $68,000 in Cuba when expenditures in the Caribbean country were illegal without US government approvalDemocrat Hillary Clinton accused Donald Trump Thursday of breaking the law by violating the US trade embargo with Cuba, slamming her rival as dishonest and willing to put his interests before the country. Clinton said Trump’s business interests in Cuba in the 1990s “appear to violate US law, certainly flout American foreign policy,” as she accused him of misleading American voters. Newsweek earlier reported that Trump hotel and casino executives spent $68,000 while trying to get a foothold in Cuba during a trip in 1998.
