U.S.-Cuba relations: A Chinese finger trap

Chinese finger trap means a lot of things to a lot of people - just check the Urban Dictionary. But when Ellen Bernstein talks about the Chinese toy, she compares it U.S.-Cuba relations.

The U.S. government has its finger in one end of the trap. The Cuban government's finger is stuck in the other end. The two sides fight and pull against each other, the trap tightens and relations never improve.
Bernstein is a leader of Pastors for Peace, which has been calling for normalization of U.S.-Cuba relations.
See a video of Bernstein on the Cuba Money Project's Vimeo channel or see a quick summary of her interview here.
