Americans were stunned after Bernie Sanders praised communist dictator Fidel Castro. Even after the backlash, the Democratic socialist only doubled down on his sentiments. Now, Cuban Americans are taking a stand. They flooded Miami to protest Sanders’ campaign. And guess whose flags they were waving?
It’s kind of crazy to think that an American candidate for president would praise a man like Fidel Castro. Has Bernie Sanders forgotten our history? Even if he could forgive Castro for killing so many of his own people, how can Sanders ignore the Cuban Missile Crisis? A situation where Castro might have started a nuclear war?
(It only ended, by the way, thanks to American leadership.)
But despite that painful reality, Sanders has complimented Castro more than once. He doesn’t seem to be upset that his words have disgusted millions of Americans. That includes Americans that had to flee the evils of the Castro regime. There are many Cuban Americans who risked their lives to get out of their home country and find a better life in the U.S.A.
And they are equally upset about Sanders, a self-proclaimed socialist, giving props of the evil dictator of Cuba. So, they decided to swarm Miami and show their support… for Donald Trump.
Caravans of Cuban-Americans rallied in support of President Donald Trump on Saturday after Sen. Bernie Sanders defended Cuban dictator Fidel Castro’s policies.
Photos and videos emerged on social media in Miami featuring long lines of cars and trucks flying Cuban and American flags and honking their horns. Others wore MAGA hats and waved Trump 2020 flags to show their support of the president.
The vehicles featured signs and painted slogans such as “Viva Trump,” “Free Cuba, “Cambio es ya” (Change is Now), and “Abajo La Dictadura” (Down with Dictatorships)…

Well, if Sanders wanted to lose a significant portion of the Hispanic vote, he’s doing a good job of it!
Cubans, and other Americans of Hispanic descent, once lived in socialist/communist countries. They suffered thanks to corrupt dictators like Fidel Castro. They had to live with the abuse, oppression, and poverty of socialism every day. And not only is Sanders praising a communist icon, but he’s promising to implement the same kind of policies that ruin Cuba.
We shouldn’t be surprised to see Cuban Americans rally around Donald Trump. President Trump has vowed that America will never be a socialist country. Every last Democrat running for president is embracing one socialist program or another. The most popular, of course, is socialized medicine, a system that has failed in every country that’s embraced it.
Cuban Americans in both Miami and Kentucky (go figure) decided to make a big show of their support for Donald Trump. After all, he’s the one man working to provide a future for all Americans. Sanders’ plans would drag us back into the Dark Ages of tax-loving Obama. He would cripple our economy and drive away jobs.
Why would any American—Cuban or otherwise—want to support that?
Be sure that few media outlets will report this groundswell of support for Trump. But the American people won’t be silent.
Democrats think they can hide behind the MSM. They still think that we’ll do whatever they say. But those days are long behind us.
The Democrats have lost their way. They are only a few months away from nominated a socialist to their party’s top ticket. Do they really think Americans will elect a man promising to turn us into Castro’s Cuba?
