In recent days there has been mass protestors all throughout Cuba taking the street to protest the Communist government that is running the country into the ground.
While the Biden administration won’t even put the word Communism and Cuba in the same sentence Trump did the exact opposite.
President Trump took notice and released a statement that read he stood with the people of Cuba 100% to protest against the Communist government of Cuba.
He also took a jab at Obama for watching baseball games with the Castro’s while he was in office.
Take a look:
President Donald J. Trump stands with the people of Cuba!

Now let’s compare that to the Biden administration’s statement of Cuba:
Jen Psaki calls the uprising across Cuba "spontaneous expressions" against the "economic mismanagement" of the regime.

Notice how Psaki left out the word Communism and just used the word economic mismanagement?
Another White House official stated that the Cubans were protesting due to their government’s COVID-19 response:
Peaceful protests are growing in #Cuba as the Cuban people exercise their right to peaceful assembly to express concern about rising COVID cases/deaths & medicine shortages. We commend the numerous efforts of the Cuban people mobilizing donations to help neighbors in need.

The Daily Mail had more on the story:
Trump said he stood with the Cuban people ‘100 per cent’ and urged Biden to act.
‘Joe Biden MUST stand up to the Communist regime or—history will remember,’ Trump said. ‘The Cuban people deserve freedom and human rights! THEY ARE NOT AFRAID!’
During Obama’s tenure, the Democrat tried to open up relations with Cuba – even visiting the country in 2016 where he attended a baseball game with Castro, then the country’s president.
Trump reversed the Obama-era policy – with Biden pledging to go back to it. Biden, however, hasn’t taken any action yet.
Trump’s statement came after White House press secretary Jen Psaki dodged questions on why a State Department official tweeted that the protests were directly tied to COVID-19 concerns.
Julie Chung, the acting assistant secretary of the department’s Buruea of Western Hemisphere Affairs tweeted Sunday, ‘Peaceful protests are growing in Cuba as the Cuban people exercise their right to peaceful assembly to express concern about rising COVID cases/deaths & medicine shortage.
