WASHINGTON—President Donald Trump will issue a policy directive on Friday aimed at scaling back some of the changes made by his predecessor to U.S.-Cuba policy, taking aim at tourist travel and transactions with Cuba’s military but leaving in place many of former President Barack Obama’s steps toward normalization.

Speaking from Miami, Mr. Trump will direct the Treasury and Commerce departments to prohibit direct financial transactions with Cuba’s military and intelligence services, White House officials said Thursday.
