Castro slams Trump's 'hostile rhetoric' toward Cuba

Source: The Hill



BY ALICIA COHN - 06/17/17 09:22 AM EDT

President Trump’s Friday speech on Cuba was "loaded with hostile rhetoric that recalls the times of open confrontation,” according to a statement released by the Cuban President Raul Castro’s administration.

Cuba is not happy with Trump’s changes to U.S. policy toward the island nation. Trump rolled back several changes that former President Obama’s had made in his second term that normalized diplomatic relations with Castro and eased restrictions on travel and trade between the two countries.

“The last two years have shown that the two countries can cooperate and coexist in a civilized way,” according to Castro.

The statement released through government-run media called for more "respectful dialogue" with the U.S., according to multiple reports.

1. He's making friends all over the world, isn't he?

Dump is beyond dangerous. He's pissing off allies and potential allies while supporting and praising dictators and despots.

Are we tired of winning yet?

3. The US had best hope we never need support from allies while this ass is in the WH. He is

completely wrecking the reputation/image of the US and it well might not be that easy to recover. I read recently even distinguished CEOs, both R&D, think he is a complete loser. Trump, is a global disaster.

4. Castro should have sought out a Trump property.

Did he get the contact card from Kushner?

6. Interesting how he's so concerned about people being oppressed in Cuba

but doesn't give two shits about those suffering the same fate in Saudi Arabia, a country whose rulers he embraces...
