Miami mayor says ‘U.S. has a vested interest and a right to intervene on behalf of the Cuban people’
By Jenny Goldsberry
Fox News’ Your World with Cavuto hosted Miami Mayor Francis X. Suarez Monday to get his response to the recent rallies for Cuba. A large crowd gathered in the streets of the Little Havana neighborhood all weekend. He shared his insight as to why the city showed so much support.
“First of all, I think Americans understand that this impacts America,” Suarez told guest hose Sandra Smith Fox. “You know, the Cuban dictatorship is, you know, a drug trafficking dictatorship. They sponsor terrorism. And they have also exported communism throughout the hemisphere, throughout the world.”
Consequently, the Miami mayor is of the opinion that the U.S. government should get more involved. “So I think the U.S. has a vested interest and a right to intervene on behalf of the Cuban people, but also on behalf of the United States,” Suarez said. “And creating an international coalition is important because the Cuban people have no food, as was stated by your reporter correctly. They have no access to medical care, particularly being devastated by the Coronavirus, and most importantly, they want freedom. What we have in this country, they want.”
