Donald Trump Issues Perfect Statement on Death of Fidel Castro

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

In the interest of giving credit where credit is due, President-elect Donald Trump issued a perfect first response on Twitter this morning and followed it up with a statement more apt and honest, and with little lamentations over the death of Cuban dictator, Fidel Castro.

Indeed he is.

The communist dictator has been effectually retired for several years now due to waning health, but the man’s death is a day of rejoicing for many whose families fled his brutal regime as Caleb, Jay and Susan have all written about this morning.

The President-elect then made an official statement that puts other world leaders to shame, including our own current lame duck president.

Donald Trump’s statement, on the other hand, hit the nail on the head and reminded the world that Fidel Castro, outside of his friends and family, is no one the world should miss:

“Today, the world marks the passing of a brutal dictator who oppressed his own people for nearly six decades,” Trump said in a statement issued a couple of hours after his tweet.
“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.”
The President-elect added, “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.”

Well done, Donnie.
