Fidel Castro is dead!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 26, 2016
Donald Trump has issued a more formal statement:
Today, the world marks the passing of a brutal dictator who oppressed his own people for nearly six decades. Fidel Castro’s legacy is one of firing squads, theft, unimaginable suffering, poverty and the denial of fundamental human rights.
While Cuba remains a totalitarian island, it is my hope that today marks a move away from the horrors endured for too long, and toward a future in which the wonderful Cuban people finally live in the freedom they so richly deserve
Though the tragedies, deaths and pain caused by Fidel Castro cannot be erased, our administration will do all it can to ensure the Cuban people can finally begin their journey toward prosperity and liberty. I join the many Cuban Americans who supported me so greatly in the presidential campaign, including the Brigade 2506 Veterans Association that endorsed me, with the hope of one day soon seeing a free Cuba.One has to wonder why Trump mentions a veterans military brigade in his statement. What about all the wonderful Cuban entrepreneurs that have contributed to the richness of Florida.
Trump appears to love the military as much as Castro did.
