House Democrat Blames Trump For Cuba Uprising, Calls On Biden To Aid The Cuban Government

Democrats do this all the time

Democratic Rep. Gregory Meeks of New York, chairman of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, pressed Joe Biden to lift sanctions on Cuba. The same sanctions Donald Trump restored during his time in office.

This move would reinstate the policy from Barack Obama’s era.

They try to blast pretty much everything Trump did in the past four years.

“I commend these brave protesters and all those demanding respect for democracy anywhere around the world, including here at home, for standing up and making their voices heard. Cubans are facing profound hardship because of the health and economic impacts of COVID-19, the entrenched culture of corruption and mismanagement among Cuba’s leadership, and the strict sanctions callously imposed by the Trump Administration,” Meeks said in a statement.

“Cubans are angry and they have every right to express their frustrations and engage in peaceful protest — basic human freedoms that must be respected, not punished,” Meeks added. “I call on President Biden to help alleviate the suffering in Cuba by rescinding the Trump era sanctions and offering additional humanitarian and vaccine assistance to the Cuban people.”

“I’d try to reverse the failed Trump policies that inflicted harm on Cubans and their families,” Biden said in September 2020. The presidential candidate argued that Trump “has done nothing to advance democracy and human rights; on the contrary, the crackdown on Cubans by the regime has gotten worse under Trump, not better.”

Dementia Joe continued Trump’s policy. On Monday, Secretary of State Tony Blinken released a statement suggesting that Cuba is responsible for its horrible economy.

“I think it would be a grievous mistake for the Cuban regime to interpret what is happening in dozens of towns and cities across the island as the result or product of anything the United States has done,” Blinken said.

“It would be a grievous mistake because it would show that they simply are not hearing the voices and will of the Cuban people. People deeply, deeply, deeply tired of the repression that has gone on for far too long, tired of the mismanagement of the Cuban economy, tired of the lack of adequate food and, of course, an adequate response to the Covid pandemic. That is what we are hearing and seeing in Cuba. And that is a reflection of the Cuban people, not of the United States or any other outside actor.”

The mainstream media suggests that Trump’s embargo on Cuba led to Cuban people’s plight and the current uprising. Democratic Socialists of America’s International Committee made this claim:

The new administration released a statement and blamed the pandemic for this uprising:

“We stand with the Cuban people as they bravely assert their fundamental and universal rights, and as they all call for freedom and relief from the tragic grip of the pandemic and from the decades of repression and economic suffering,” Biden’s Twitter statement on Monday said.

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said the statement wasn’t released by the President.

“We, of course, are monitoring closely, you saw the statement the president — we put out in the president’s name this morning, in his voice of course, conveying his support for the people of Cuba,” Psaki said.

A State Department official released a statement, too:

“Peaceful protests are growing in #Cuba as the Cuban people exercise their right to peaceful assembly to express concern about rising COVID cases/deaths & medicine shortages,” Julie Chung, the Acting Assistant Secretary for U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs, tweeted. “We commend the numerous efforts of the Cuban people mobilizing donations to help neighbors in need.”

Videos on demonstrations suggest that these people protest for “freedom.” This has nothing to do with the pandemic.

At least 100 protesters were arrested:

“Shouting ‘Freedom’ and other anti-government slogans, hundreds of Cubans took to the streets in cities around the country on Sunday to protest food and medicine shortages, in a remarkable eruption of discontent not seen in nearly 30 years,” the Times wrote.

The mainstream media and our “beloved” President mislead citizens about the situation in Cuba.

Trump supports Cuban people and blasts Biden for supporting the regime.

“Big demonstrations are breaking out in Cuba and Miami in protest of the Communist Cuban Government (although, today there are zero protesters in Cuba—you know what that means!),” Trump stated.

“Don’t forget that Biden and the Democrats campaigned on reversing my very tough stance on Cuba,” he continued. “Remember when Obama attended baseball games with Castros while they imprisoned, beat, and killed the Cuban people.”

“I stand with the Cuban people 100% in their fight for freedom,” the statement went on. “The Government must let them speak and be free!”

“Joe Biden MUST stand up to the Communist regime or—history will remember,” Trump added. “The Cuban people deserve freedom and human rights! THEY ARE NOT AFRAID!”

Lifting Trump’s embargo would only fuel the illegitimate regime in Cuba. Democrats are well aware of this…
