Having suffered unspeakable horrors under Communism in Cuba, I have a sacred responsibility to advise on this urgent situation-- and have done so as a former candidate to the U.S. Senate (on the ballot 2012) and as a writer. The world has abandoned the people of Cuba, but I will never abandon my conscience.
The world has abandoned the people of Cuba. They did so long ago. They did so each time they established business partnerships with the Communist military dictators in Cuba.
When it comes to Americans– they did so every time they chose, FOR DECADES, to enter Cuba ILLEGALLY by traveling through Mexico and Canada in violation of United States laws and international laws, and by colluding with the Communists in Havana who refused to stamp their passports with their entry, in order to avoid leaving a trail of travel into the island prison.
President Trump has not “completely” reversed Obama’s Cuba policy
I have supported President Trump from the moment he announced his candidacy– to the disappointment of many of my fellow Republicans. However, when it comes to his Cuba policy, I have publicly written since he announced his candidacy, that he is to follow a tough and swift approach– or he will simply be another U.S. President who will pass through Washington DC while the people of Cuba continue to suffer unspeakable horrors 90 miles from our shores.
As a survivor of Communism in Cuba, I have a sacred responsibility to advise on this urgent situation– and have done so both as a former candidate to the U.S. Senate (on the ballot 2012) and as a writer.
As such, I insist that President Trump’s new Cuba policy has left huge gaps that enable the Communists in Havana to not just oppress the people inside the island prison– but to export their evil Marxist ideology and totalitarian regime to other countries in the Western Hemisphere (i.e., Venezuela), as well as to Africa and other parts of the world.
The truth is that President Trump has NOT “completely” reversed Obama’s Cuba policy, as he said in his speech in Miami, at the Manuel Artime Theater on Friday, June 16.
President Trump needs to surround himself with courageous people who are willing to advise him, without fear, on the proper course to follow regarding the evil Communist dictatorship in Cuba.
President Trump, let me know when you are ready to talk.
Someone has to say the truth…
