Rubio: ‘Hopefully We’re Getting Closer to the Day’ When Cuba Will Have Free and Fair Elections

‘Today every country in the hemisphere has had at least one free and fair election in the last decade and a half or so except for one, the island of Cuba’

RUSH EXCERPT:

RUBIO: "Well the one thing I would say to you is that they challenge the world to do more, to create stability in their own regions and the western hemisphere is the region we’re in and I would say on national security interest to have human rights and democracy in our region because the absence of those two things leads to lie migratory pressure on the united States is created by instability in the western hemisphere so there is a national security interest in our region in creating stability and democracy and the other thing I would say is, if you look at the western hemisphere, 30 years ago, the majority of the countries were governored by dictatorships or strong men. Today every country in the hemisphere has had at least one free and fair election in the last decade and a half or so except for one, the island of Cuba, and so hopefully we’re getting closer to the day when that happens there as well."
