Donald Trump arrived yesterday in Miami at 12:25 on Friday and an hour later began his speech at the Manuel Artime Theater, where he confirmed that he will reverse Obama’s policy toward Cuba and intensify measures affecting the Cuban people.
“I am canceling the entire bilateral agreement of the last government (Barack Obama). I am announcing a new policy, as I promised during the campaign, and I will sign that contract at that table in just one moment “
This decision violates Trump’s policy of “America First”, because its measures against Cuba also harm the North American country.
Before Trump, Mario Diaz-Balart and Marco Rubio, took the floor and pressured the president to take action against the welfare of the Cuban people. In his introductory speech, Rubio lashed out at Barack Obama’s decision to re-establish relations with Cuba and commended Donald Trump for the retreat in this regard. Also speaking the Governor of Florida, Rick Scott, who last January threatened the ports of his state to receive merchandise from Cuba.
Cuba responded without hesitation to Trump’s defiant and demagogue statement:
- Any strategy aimed @ changing the political, economic, & social system in Cuba, whether it seeks 2 achieve it through pressure& imposition, or employing more subtle methods, will be doomed to failure
