Williams on Cubans Use of Donkey Carts: ‘That’s What They Would Rather Have’

‘The pictures we see in America of the old American cars from the 1950s, those are not a quaint parade vehicles that drive around for the tourists’

RUSH EXCERPT:

BRIAN WILLIAMS: “Long before the veil of old age came down on him, he could talk easily, easily and seemed to love the sound of his own voice for hours on end. He was the original revolutionary. He was the man the people called the great revolutionary. He did give birth to modern day post-Batista Cuba, which often could not be mistaken for a modern nation whatsoever. The pictures we see in America of the old American cars from the 1950s, those are not a quaint parade vehicles that drive around for the tourists. That’s been transportation. All of them have been jerry-rigged since the day the curt-on-came down on western parts. That’s changing somewhat now with the arrival of western brands. It’s still a nation where you see donkey carts along side cars, trucks, and buses in downtown Havana, because that’s exactly what they would rather have for transportation.”
