Now that Fidel Castro has died, Cuba finally has a chance to move towards freedom. Trump’s team knows this and is taking advantage of the opportunity.
Reince Priebus, who is going to be Trump’s White House chief of staff, laid out the plan this weekend.
The Washington Examiner has the story:
Priebus: Trump could cut off Cuba if Raul Castro refuses ‘movement in the right direction’
Reince Priebus, President-elect Trump’s incoming chief of staff, said Sunday that Trump would rescind diplomatic relations with Cuba if the Castro regime did not make “movement in the right direction.”
“Repression, open markets, freedom of religion, political prisoners — these things need to change in order to have open and free relationships,” Priebus said during an appearance on “Fox News Sunday.” “There’s going to have to be some movement from Cuba in order to have relationship with the United States.”
Members of Trump’s team have criticized President Obama for offering condolences to the Castro family after the death of Fidel Castro on Friday. Trump released a statement remarking on the human rights violations of the “brutal dictator.”

Trump and his team want more freedom for more people.
Why does the left object to that?
