WASHINGTON, DC – The Biden Administration has kicked the Cuban can down the street as much as they could before finally admitting that the country is not in a COVID-19 crisis, but a political crisis.
Cubans have taken to the streets to protest decades of communist and socialist rule that has seen the degradation of healthcare, education, quality of life, and the nation’s once-bustling mid-twentieth century economy.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki finally acknowledges the problem is not because Cubans don’t have access to COVID-19 vaccines, but because they don’t have access to many of life’s necessities.
“There’s every indication that yesterday’s protests were spontaneous expressions of people who are exhausted with the Cuban government’s economic mismanagement and repression. And those — these are protests inspired by the harsh reality of everyday life in Cuba, not people in another country. I’m saying that because I think there have been a range of accusations out there,” Psaki said.
Psaki said the White House will support the people of Cuba fighting against communism and socialism, but did not say how far the administration will go or what specific actions could be taken.
“In terms of our assessment of a future — our current pol- — our policy, I should say, it continues to be — our approach continues to be governed by two principles: First, support for democracy and human rights — which is going to continue to be at the core of our efforts — through empowering the Cuban people to determine their own future. Second, Americans, especially Cuban Americans, are the best ambassadors for freedom and prosperity in Cuba,” Psaki said.
