Faced with the wave of protests on the Caribbean island, Donald Trump says that Biden “must stand up to” the Cuban communist regime. In addition, the former president supported the protesters and showed his solidarity with “the Cuban people.”

This Monday, Trump issued a brief statement in which he said: “I support the Cuban people 100% in their fight for freedom,” but that was not all because I take the opportunity to point out President Biden and the Democrats.

According to the Republican, his opponents campaigned “to reverse my very tough stance on Cuba.” It should be remembered that during his mandate (2017-2021) the measures against the island were redoubled, reported the EFE agency.

Like Trump, Biden also expressed his support for the Cuban people a few hours earlier. The former president’s comments came after Biden asked the Cuban government to avoid “violence” in its “attempt to silence” the protests against him.

“The Cuban people are demanding their freedom from an authoritarian regime. I do not think we have seen anything similar to these protests in a long, long time, or perhaps ever, frankly, “acknowledged the US president about the unprecedented protests that he described as” a call for freedom “in” brave “exercise of the” Fundamental rights”.

What will the United States do?

It is not yet clear what the United States will do or if it will do anything about the situation in Cuba. During the press conference at the White House, journalists asked Biden if he would change the restrictions on Cuba that former President Trump installed.

The president dodged the question with a vague response: “We will have more to say about Cuba and Haiti as this week progresses. Stay tuned, ”he commented and left open the possibility for further actions and statements soon.

The protests that began last Sunday take place in the middle of a country mired in a serious economic and social crisis. The shortage of food, lack of basic products, long electricity cuts that are already routine, among other problems lead its citizens to protest.

With the arrival of the coronavirus, a health crisis has also been unleashed, the pandemic is out of control and they do not have the medicines to deal with the situation. In addition, the cry of “freedom” of the Cubans suggests that they have tired of an oppressive communist regime. Trump assures that Biden “must confront the Cuban regime”.
