If you’ve been keeping updated with the presidential race, you know that it has been a bad week for Republican nominee Donald Trump. The candidate who has recently been blasted by countless celebrities such as Rosie O’Donnell, former Miss Universe Alicia Machado and most notably President Barack Obama continues down a negative spiral. It is now being reported that one of his poor decisions can cost him the election.

According to Newsweek, Trump knowingly violated the U.S. embargo on Cuba in the 1990s. He spent almost $70,000 on a “foray” looking into business ventures in Cuba in 1998.  What’s worse is that the candidate’s spokeswoman Kellyanne Conway doesn’t deny it.

Conway recently spoke out to Washington Post about Trump’s illegal trip.  She noted that he did indeed spend money with the purpose of exploring new business ventures.  While this serves as big news in the election, she informs the publication that she “did not say he broke the law or violated the embargo.”

Despite Conway stepping forward about Trump’s trip, the candidate denies it. “I never did business in Cuba. There’s this guy who has a very bad reputation as a reporter. You see what his record is. He wrote something about me in Cuba. No, I never did anything in Cuba. I never did a deal in Cuba,” he told NH1.

Of course it is just like Trump to assassinate someone’s character that exposes him.

Ana Navarro, the reporter in question still stands by her statement. “It is never a good thing when voters feel played and find out the candidate they are supporting is a hypocrite on an issue that carries the emotion that Cuba policy does,” she tells the publication.

This news can turn into a nightmare for Trump. Older Cuban-Americans mostly reside in south Florida and although they may have favored Trump, their stance on the pro-embargo is solid. This will prove difficult for the candidate to keep their votes since he went against their values and flat out lied to them about it.

Hilary Clinton has of course used this to her advantage in the race questioning his eligibility for the presidency.

" This adds to the long list of actions and statements that raise doubt about his temperment and qualification to be president," she said.
