Pressed this morning, RNC Chair Reince Priebus speculated on how Trump might handle Cuba now that worthless leftwing dirtbag Fidel Castro is on the express train to Hell:
Reince Priebus, President-elect Trump’s incoming chief of staff, said Sunday that Trump would rescind diplomatic relations with Cuba if the Castro regime did not make “movement in the right direction.”
“Repression, open markets, freedom of religion, political prisoners — these things need to change in order to have open and free relationships,” Priebus said during an appearance on “Fox News Sunday.” “There’s going to have to be some movement from Cuba in order to have relationship with the United States.”
Members of Trump’s team have criticized President Obama for offering condolences to the Castro family after the death of Fidel Castro on Friday. Trump released a statement remarking on the human rights violations of the “brutal dictator.”
Trump has been critical of Obama’s decision to reopen diplomatic relations with Cuba without securing any concessions from the government of Raul Castro.
This is a smart move by Trump. Although the end of the embargo was welcomed by many who suggested that wealth and technology would transform Cuba, the Obama Administration got no such guarantees. It’s far more likely that the influx of new American investment will be used to fill the pockets of regime insiders. Going forward, we should use our considerable weight here to demand some sort of liberalization.
