President Bush moved Saturday to tighten the longstanding U.S. trade embargo against Cuba by imposing a new ban on entry to American ports by ships that trade with the Fidel Castro regime. Bush said that only those ships that receive special licenses from the Treasury Department would be allowed entry to U.S. ports if they continue to trade with Cuba. An Administration official said the restrictions would affect about 40 ships a year that load and unload cargo in both the United Stats and Cuba.
