Donald Trump scorecard: He gets it right on Cuba.

...when he tweeted:

If Cuba is unwilling to make a better deal for the Cuban people, the Cuban/American people and the U.S. as a whole, I will terminate deal.

— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 28, 2016

What did the Cuban ruling elite  get out of the deal? Money. Jobs. Recognition.fidel_castro

What did America get out of the deal? Nothing much. A direct flight to Cuba, oh wow. More Cuban cigars. Double wow.

What did the Cuban people get out of the deal? Not  freedom. Continued oppression.  Obama's soft, lead-from-behind foreign policy does another dictatorship a favor. Way to go.

  • So much for progress. Maybe Trump will consult with Putin on what to do next.
