Unlike Canada’s Useful Idiot PM Trump Calls It Right: Castro left a legacy of ‘unimaginable suffering’

President-elect Donald Trump on Saturday marked the death of Cuba’s “brutal dictator,” saying Fidel Castro left a legacy of “unimaginable suffering.”

“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 toward a future in which the wonderful Cuban people finally live in the freedom they so richly deserve,” he added.
