Ted Cruz: Cuba Relations Thaw ‘a Tragic Mistake’ (National Review Online)
Texas Republican senator Ted Cruz panned the Obama administration’s decision to open up relations with the communist Caribbean nation of Cuba, saying the move will be regarded as “a tragic mistake” by future generations.
A Cuban-American whose father fled the brutal Castro regime after it took power in the late 1950s, Cruz seemed disgusted by the thaw in relations between the United States and Cuba.
“This is yet another manifestation of the failures of the Obama-Clinton-Kerry foreign policy,” the senator said on Fox News Wednesday. “This announcement today will be remembered as a tragic mistake.”
