The comment is the latest hardline stance towards the island nation following the Friday death of longtime leader Fidel Castro. While President Obama and some other world leaders issued carefully worded statements on Castro's death, Trump's statement called him a "brutal dictator who oppressed his own people for nearly six decades."
The tweet goes further, suggesting that he would roll back the first major thaw in U.S.-Cuba relations since Castro seized power in the late 1950s. Following months of secret meetings, President Obama and Raul Castro, who now runs the island, announced an agreement to normalize diplomatic relations and begin allowing trade and travel between the countries.
Damn that is short sighted.
With Fidel Castro now dead, and his brother talking of stepping down as Cuba's president, this is a prime opportunity for the US to exert some influence and work to create a relationship that benefits both countries.
But no, the corpulent tangerine anus has to shit on every policy decision that President Obama has ever made simply out of spite, without any regard for the benefits they may afford the American people or our relations with foreign countries.
