From his throne atop the solid gold toilet in the Trump Tower, our new president-elect whipped out his Android phone this morning and tweeted a threat to “terminate the deal” with Cuba unless they give him a “better deal.”
If Cuba is unwilling to make a better deal for the Cuban people, the Cuban/American people and the U.S. as a whole, I will terminate deal.

Once again, this dangerous clown is revealing his total ignorance of politics, government or diplomacy. We have a diplomatic thaw with Cuba, not a “deal.” President Obama moved to normalize relations with Cuba, easing sanctions and allowing Americans to travel to Cuba. Describing this as a “deal” shows the severe limits of Trump’s egomaniacal inability to grasp what kind of job he’s taken on; he can only see things in terms of what he knows, what will benefit him and what will damage him. But this far right posturing will only end up damaging both Cuba and the US.
Don’t be surprised if Trump’s idea of a “better deal” involves allowing his companies special privileges to build hotels and do business in Cuba. We’ll soon have a president who runs the country like his personal business.
