Trump Accuses Cuba of Despotism, Says It Canít Stamp Out Desire for Liberty

WASHINGTON Ė US President Donald Trump accused on Saturday Cubaís communist government of despotism but said it would never be able to extinguish its peopleís desire for freedom.

Donald Trumpís remarks were included in a White House statement congratulating Cuban-Americans and the Cuban people on the Caribbean islandís independence day, which is celebrated on May 20.

ďThe Cuban people deserve a government that peacefully upholds democratic values, economic liberties, religious freedoms and human rights, and my administration is committed to achieving that vision,Ē Trump, who is in Saudi Arabia, his first stop abroad since taking office in January, was quoted as saying.

During the campaign, Trump was the only Republican candidate who supported then-President Barack Obamaís decision to restore full diplomatic ties with Cuba, but he later adopted a harsher line toward the island as he pursued votes in the all-important state of Florida, home to a large Cuban exile population.

Shortly before his successorís inauguration, Obama said Trump and his team would realize that it made no sense to, among other things, bar US residents from traveling to Cuba and stop US companies from investing on the island while the rest of the world is able to do those things.
