Trump on Cuba

Trump supports the normalizing of relations with Cuba

DAILY CALLER:: What do you think of the opening with Cuba? Do you think that is a good policy, or do you oppose America’s opening with Cuba?

DONALD TRUMP: I think it’s fine. I think it’s fine, but we should have made a better deal. The concept of opening with Cuba-50 years is enough-the concept of opening with Cuba is fine. I think we should have made a stronger deal.

Clinton on Cuba

Clinton strongly supports the lifting of the Cuban embargo.

“We have arrived at a decisive moment. The Cuban people have waited long enough for progress to come. Even many republicans on Capitol Hill are starting to recognize the urgency of moving forward. It’s time for their leaders to either get on board or get out of the way. The Cuba embargo needs to go once and for all.

“If we go backward no one will benefit more than the hard-liners in Havana. In fact there may be no stronger argument for engagement then the fact that Cuba’s hard-liners are so opposed to it.

“Engagement is not a gift to the Castro’s. It’s a threat to the Castro’s. An American Embassy in Havana isn’t a concession it’s a beacon. Lifting the embargo doesn’t set back the advance of freedom it advances freedom where it is more desperately needed.

“Fundamentally most of the republican candidates still view Cuba and Latin America more broadly through an outdated cold war lens. Instead of opportunities to be seized they see only threats to be feared. They refuse to learn the lessons of the past or pay attention to what’s worked and what hasn’t. For them ideology trumps evidence and so they remain incapable of moving us forward. As President I would increase American influence in Cuba rather than reduce it. I would work with congress to lift the embargo and I would pursue additional steps.

“We cannot afford to let out of touch, out of date, partisan ideas and candidates rip away all the progress we’ve made. We can’t go back to cowboy diplomacy and reckless war mongering. We can’t go back to a go it alone foreign policy that views American boots on the ground as a first choice rather than a last resort. We have paid too high a price in lives, power and prestige to make those same mistakes again.”
