Rep. Bass Rips President Trump’s New Cuba Policy

June 16, 2017
Press Release
WASHINGTON—Rep. Karen Bass (D-Calif.) released the following statement in response to President Trump’s hate-filled speech introducing his new Cuba policy.

“The policy that the president signed this afternoon is a slap in the face to all who welcomed the United States abandoning an outdated Cold War policy and a terrible step backwards for our international perception. I’ve traveled to Cuba since President Obama’s landmark policy and can attest firsthand the Cuban people have benefited from the thaw of our relationship. The President’s insistence to damage our global relationships and leadership will only harm us in the long run.”
