Far-left Senator Bernie Sanders finally weighed-in late Monday night on the pro-democracy protests sweeping Cuba; saying the “US Embargo” has “only hurt, not helped” the communist nation.
“All people have the right to protest and to live in a democratic society. I call on the Cuban government to respect opposition rights and refrain from violence. It’s also long past time to end the unilateral U.S. embargo on Cuba, which has only hurt, not helped, the Cuban people,” posted the Senator on Twitter.

Countless police descended on the streets of Havana and other Cuban cities Monday night into Tuesday morning, arresting hundreds of pro-democracy activists demanding reforms in the Communist island-nation.
“Sunday’s protests marked some of the biggest displays of antigovernment sentiment in the tightly controlled country in years. Cuba is going through its worst economic crisis in decades, along with a resurgence of coronavirus cases, as it suffers the consequences of U.S. sanctions imposed by former President Donald Trump’s administration,” reports the Associated Press.
“Many young people took part in demonstrations in Havana. Protests were also held elsewhere on the island, including in the small town of San Antonio de los Baños, where people objected to power outages and were visited by President Miguel Díaz-Canel. He entered a few homes, where he took questions from residents,” adds the AP.
Congressman Dan Crenshaw unloaded on the White House Monday after a top State Department Official blamed civil unrest in Cuba -not on Communism- but on the COVID-19 pandemic.
“No they’re chanting LIBERTAD. Stop playing cover for communists and support the Cuban people. My god. Why is that so hard for you,” posted Crenshaw on Twitter.

President Trump called-out Bernie Sanders and the mainstream media Monday; saying the Democratic Socialist should be labeled “a racist” after referring to Baltimore as a “third world country.”
“Crazy Bernie Sanders recently equated the City of Baltimore to a THIRD WORLD COUNTRY! Based on that statement, I assume that Bernie must now be labeled a Racist, just as a Republican would if he used that term and standard!” Trump tweeted.
“The fact is, Baltimore can be brought back, maybe even to new heights of success and glory, but not with King Elijah and that crew. When the leaders of Baltimore want to see the City rise again, I am in a very beautiful oval shaped office waiting for your call!” he added.
