Donald J. Trump has recently taken a firm stand behind the pro-freedom protests in Cuba, based on a statement released on Monday. Currently, protests have erupted across the nation in order to seek freedom from the communist regime of Castro.
Trump noted that massive protests have not only broken out across Cuba, but also the city of Miami, Florida, against the Communist Cuban Government. In addition, Trump also remarked that Americans should not forget the fact “that Biden and the Democrats campaigned on reversing [his] very tough stance on Cuba.”
For instance, Trump recalls how Obama attended various baseball games with the Castro family “while [the Castros] imprisoned, beat, and killed the Cuban people.”
However, Trump asserts that he stands behind “the Cuban people 100% in their fight for freedom.” He continued onwards to assert that the Cuban government must permit freedom of speech, as well as an array of other freedoms. Trump also observed that the Biden administration has an imperative to “stand up to the Communist regime,” as “history will remember” what was done and not done.
“The Cuban people deserve freedom and human rights,” Trump added, pointing out that “THEY ARE NOT AFRAID!”
During Trump’s presidency in June 2017, he traveled physically to Miami, Florida in order to support dissidents in Cuba, as well as to rail against the various evils associated with communist regimes.
These evils include “terrible crimes committed in service of a depraved ideology.” Trump recalls how generations upon generations of Cubans have been held in captivity, which “literally” illustrates “what communism has done” to the nation. Tragically, various Cubans have “disappeared,” while numerous Cubans innocent of any crimes have been summarily locked up. Additionally, other Cubans faced sever persecution “for preaching the word of God,” Trump notes.
During his 2017 appearance, Trump also noted that Cubans watched the “Women in White” face severe punishment from the regime, which includes being “bloodied,” “bruised,” and “captured” while they were returning from attending Mass. He also added that “the cracks of firing squads piercing through the ocean breeze” and “the chilling cries of loved ones” continue to haunt many Cubans to this day.
Moreover, Trump also remarked that the “dissidents” and “exiles” who presently live in massive Cuban communities across Miami, Florida have witnessed these atrocities firsthand, as well as how “communism [can] destroy a nation,” similar to the way in which the ideology “has destroyed every single nation where it has ever been tried.”
However, Trump also insisted that “we will not be silent in the face of communist oppression any longer.” He also notes that Cubans “have spoken the truth” and “seen the truth.” Consequently, “the truth has now called us, this group … to action,” Trump concluded.
