President Trump took out his pen in Miami on Friday, and in one single stroke he undid some of the provisions included in the Obama administration’s one-sided deal with Cuba. It was a campaign promise kept by Trump, and a move that sent former Obama aide, Ben Rhodes into spasms.
“The few people in Miami enabling Trump in carrying out this charade should be embarrassed/held accountable,” Rhodes wrote on Twitter. “He could care less about Cubans.”
Rhodes would end up blasting out 4 tweets slamming Trump, and then he penned an op-ed on The Atlantic’s website titled, “Trump’s Cuba Policy Will Fail.”
Rhodes played a leading role in negotiating the deal with Cuba. In fact, he is so proud of the deal that Rhodes lists it as part of his Twitter bio: “Obama foreign policy adviser and speechwriter. Mets fan, Cuba negotiator, dad to Ella and Chloe.”
As I stated on my Walk & Talk Friday, there are so many issues facing America right now that wiping out portions of Obama’s deal with Cuba should be low on the list of items to tackle. However, there is something beautiful about Trump chipping away at Obama’s fundamental transformation of America. Therefore, I give Trump kudos for checking this box on a Friday afternoon.
I can’t ignore how Obama must be feeling today. If Rhodes is having spasms, I’m guessing Obama is experiencing convulsions! Or perhaps I am wrong, perhaps Obama is just counting his new found money for giving speeches at $400k per event, and cashing in on writing a book for $61M. What’s your opinion?
