The Trump administration has nearly finished a review of a new Cuba policy that will roll back President Obama's rapprochement with the country, Reuters reported on Tuesday.

Officials Reuters spoke to said they are putting together proposals that would alter the travel and trade regulations that Obama had relaxed during his tenure.

An announcement on the administration’s policy could come as early as June, the report said. Members of President Trump’s National Security Council are conducting the review.

“We’re getting closer,” one official told the news outlet.

Trump during his presidential campaign said he would reverse “concessions towards Cuba until freedoms are restored.” After winning the election in November, he said he would terminate the deal if Cuba did not want to commit to “a better deal.”

“If Cuba is unwilling to make a better deal for the Cuban people, the Cuban/American people and the U.S. as a whole, I will terminate deal,” Trump tweeted on Nov. 28.
