Editorial: Trump Gets It Right
DDC | Madrid | 22 de Junio de 2017 – 11:23 CEST.
In his speech in Miami, US President Donald Trump rightly divided Cuban
society into two groups: the military and the people. And his criticism
of the regime did not center on its ideology, on the single party, or
even on Raúl Castro. Rather, he pointed directly at the military junta,
and therein lies the greatest difference with Obama’s policy.
As he acknowledged, the aim of his new policy is to benefit the people
of Cuba by depriving the military of opportunities, an approach that
recognizes the corruption in Cuba’s army and Cuban intelligence and
security services, capable of dominating all the economic exchange
between Cuba and the US in its effort to establish a monopoly.
Referring to the need for Venezuela to democratize, the US president
conveyed another message to the Island’s military by referring not only
to its economic corruption, but also its responsibility for the
political repression in the South American country.
Donald Trump declared his respect for Cuba’s sovereignty, made clear
that his Administration has cards in its hands, that the US embassy
remains open, and that it is willing to sit down at the negotiating table.
