ALG praises Trump’s new Cuba policy

June 16, 2017, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning issued the following statement praising President Trump on his roll back of Obama’s bad deals benefiting Cuba’s corrupt regime:

“The Obama Administration rewarded the most grotesque human rights violators in the world with economic aid to keep their murderous dictatorships alive. Today, President Trump reversed one of those atrocious decisions by rolling back economic aid to the dictator in Cuba.

“The decision to stop rewarding the communist dictator has reaffirmed the United States position as a global leader in the pursuit of individual liberty for all. By refusing to fund a government that continues to jail and torture political dissidents, President Trump sent the clear message that the U.S. does not only spread wealth, it also spread the values of our country; individual liberty, justice, and democracy.

“Obama’s attempt to detach economic improvement from basic human rights tarnished our country’s position as a moral beacon for the world. By his actions today, President Trump has reestablished America’s position as the defenders of people oppressed by government, and as a worldwide defender of American values. People who care about freedom around the world should praise President Trump for standing tall on behalf of liberty for those suffering from tyrannical government.”
