Trump’s Brutal, To-The-Point Castro Statement Puts Obama’s To SHAME!

Trump’s Brutal, To-The-Point Castro Statement Puts Obama’s To SHAME!

Both our current President, Barack Obama, and our President-elect, Donald Trump, released official statements in the wake of the news that Fidel Castro, retired dictator of Cuba, had died at age 90.

Only one said what needed to be said. Only one looked Presidential. Only one pointedly called out Castro’s decades of tyranny and brutality. And that one is not our current President. Below is the full text of Obama’s statement:

“At this time of Fidel Castro’s passing, we extend a hand of friendship to the Cuban people. We know that this moment fills Cubans – in Cuba and in the United States – with powerful emotions, recalling the countless ways in which Fidel Castro altered the course of individual lives, families, and of the Cuban nation. History will record and judge the enormous impact of this singular figure on the people and world around him.

For nearly six decades, the relationship between the United States and Cuba was marked by discord and profound political disagreements. During my presidency, we have worked hard to put the past behind us, pursuing a future in which the relationship between our two countries is defined not by our differences but by the many things that we share as neighbors and friends – bonds of family, culture, commerce, and common humanity. This engagement includes the contributions of Cuban Americans, who have done so much for our country and who care deeply about their loved ones in Cuba.

Today, we offer condolences to Fidel Castro’s family, and our thoughts and prayers are with the Cuban people. In the days ahead, they will recall the past and also look to the future. As they do, the Cuban people must know that they have a friend and partner in the United States of America.”

And below, the full text of President-elect Trump’s statement from his Facebook page:

“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.”

Donald J. Trump

Which one sounds more Presidential? Which one told the truth? Trump did. Obama danced around the truth, never mentioning Castro’s legacy of death and torture. And this is one of the many reasons America chose Trump and not more of what we’ve had for 8 years in the White House. Obama is going out the way he came in; obscuring truth. Kudos to Trump for calling it like it is.

And as for Castro himself? The world will not miss a man whose legacy is death and destruction for over 50 years. The world does not mourn the death of the merchant of death. Thousands of Cuban families will not mourn the tyrant who destroyed their families and made life a living hell. Death, in fact, has finally accomplished what years of attempts on Castro’s life could not. It extinguished his poisonous mind forever. Goodbye Fidel. You will not be missed or mourned by anyone who understands justice, human rights and common sense.
