After Trump’s intimidation aimed at Cuba, they have a beautiful, logical comeback, calling out America on its human rights abuses. Since he got elected, Trump has been trying to undo many of the things the black democrat President Obama did, regardless of whether or not they were good things.
In response to President Donald Trump’s announcement on Friday that he is reversing the Obama administration’s lifted restrictions with Cuba, the Castro government released a lengthy statement saying the U.S. is in “no condition” to lecture them, especially given the sorry state of race relations in the U.S.
Trump’s speech in Miami to announce the rollback was “full of hostile rhetoric,” Havana’s statement said, adding that the announced policies will “revert” the progress achieved between the two countries in the past two years, reported CNN.
“We have deep concerns by the respect and the guaranties of the human rights in that country, where there is a large number of cases of murder, brutality and police abuse, particularly against the African Americans; the right to live is violated as a result of deaths by firearms,” the statement read.
On Friday, in the anti-Castro stronghold of Miami, Trump listed a litany of purported abuses administered by the Castro regime, including the harboring of Assata Shakur, saying, “The Castro regime has shipped arms to North Korea and fueled chaos in Venezuela. While imprisoning innocents, it has harbored cop killers, hijackers and terrorists. It has supported human trafficking, forced labor and exploitation all around the globe.”
CNN reported the letter from the Castro government fired right back with a list of U.S. abuses: “racial discrimination, salary inequality between genders, the marginalization of immigrants and refugees from Islamic and other countries, Trump’s proposed wall on the southern border, his decision to pull out of the Paris climate accord, the imprisonment of enemy combatants at Guantanamo Bay, the killing of U.S. and foreign citizens in drone attacks, the preface for and conduct of the wars in Iraq and other Middle Eastern countries, and estimates that the Republican health care bill would cause 23 million people to lose medical insurance.”
The letter continues, “The U.S. president, ill-advised once again, takes decisions that favor the political interests of an extremist minority of Cuban origin in the state of Florida, who, driven by petty motivation, do not desist from their objective to punish Cuba and its people for exercising the legitimate and sovereign right to be free and for having taken the reins of their own destiny.”
Trump needs to remember to look in the mirror before getting up in front of his prejudiced supporters. America has a long history of terrorism and oppression and should not judge other countries harshly when America is doing the same things…or worse.
