White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki deflected growing questions surrounding the Biden administration’s handling of pro-democracy protests in Cuba; saying starving Cubans are opposed to “mismanagement.”

“I’m not sure what your question is. Why are people leaving Cuba?” asked Psaki. “People are leaving Cuba and protesting as well because they’re opposed to the oppression, the mismanagement of the government in the country.”
