15 minutes. The former president of the United States (USA) Donald Trump assured the Hispanic television network Telemundo 51 that the Government of Cuba would not have endured a second term of his due to the sanctions that he imposed on the country during his presidential term.
“I think they couldn’t last much longer because I did sanctions. I did many other things as you know, and now you feel emboldened“, expressed the republican to the channel Telemundo 51.
In an exclusive interview with Marilys Llanos, the former president sent a message to the Cuban people. He also referred to what he had done for the island during his time in the White House.
During his 4-year term, Trump lashed out at the Cuban regime with travel restrictions and trade sanctions those who negotiate with companies linked to the Cuban military, among other measures.
In the interview, Trump also harshly criticized the response of President Joe Biden’s Administration to the crisis.
The Republican, who was defeated by Biden in the November elections, said that “much of the work we did for Cuba and the freedom of the people will be swept under the table by the Biden Administration.”
“Did you intend to invade Cuba during your tenure? Did you consider doing it in Venezuela?” Llanos asked.
“If I had won the elections, the Cuban crisis could have ended by now because they were preparing to renounce it, that is, the so-called leadership in Cuba.“Trump said.” I think they just couldn’t last much longer because I did sanctions. I did many other things as you know, and now you feel emboldened. Much of the work we did for Cuba and the freedom of the people “is going to be swept under the table by the Biden Administration.”
