Trump slams Castro's legacy of firing squads, suffering

Press Trust of India  |  Washington 

US president-elect Donald Trump today said that deceased Cuban leader Fidel Castro was a "brutal dictator" and his legacy is one of firing squads, unimaginable suffering, poverty and denial of human rights.

"Today, the world marks the passing of a brutal dictator who oppressed his own people for nearly six decades. Fidel Castro's legacy is one of firing squads, theft, unimaginable suffering, poverty and the denial of fundamental human rights," Trump said in a statement.



"While Cuba remains a totalitarian island, it is my hope that today marks a move away from the horrors endured for too long, and towarda future in which the wonderful Cuban people finally live in the freedom they so richly deserve," he said.

Noting that though the tragedies, deaths and pain caused by Castro cannot be erased, Trump said his administration will do all it can to ensure the Cuban people can finally begin their journey towardprosperity and liberty.

"I join the many Cuban Americans who supported me so greatly in the presidential campaign, including the Brigade 2506 Veterans Association that endorsed me, with the hope of one day soon seeing a free Cuba," Trump said.
