During an interview on NBC's "Meet The Press" on 23 April 2017, The Honorable Marco Rubio (R- Florida), a member of the United States Senate, shared:
"The National Security Council is going back to its appropriate role, which is like an internal think tank that designs big strategic objectives."
"Just Friday alone I had a conversation with folks at the National Security Council about the Western Hemisphere and their strategy towards it."
There is increasing evidence that Senator Rubio is the most influential Member of the United States Congress with respect to Republic of Cuba-related issues and that while he may not obtain all of the policy changes and regulatory changes for which he advocates, he will probably be the last name on the telephone call list of The Honorable Donald J. Trump, President of the United States, prior to the announcement by the Trump Administration of final decisions relating to the Republic of Cuba.
