Fanatics of the left are in deep mourning, but Donald Trump is on the right track about the death of Castro. The former Cuban dictator contrary to the mythology that had been built up. Fidel Castro ran a monstrous regime, he impoverished Cuba for almost six decades, ruthlessly suppressing dissent, dismissed basic rights and freedoms and forced two million people to flee.

He turned his island nation into a region where opponents were murdered or jailed for decades and priests and homosexuals sent to re - education camps.

During the year of 1962 he conspired to bring the world to the brink of Armageddon. A nuclear war between the old Soviet Union of Russia and the United States of America. The nuclear war was only narrowly averted when the Soviet Union premier of the time Nikita Khrushchev saw sense and backed down.

Mr Donald Trump virtually was alone among world leaders who noted that a Castro legacy was firing squads, theft, unimaginable suffering, poverty and denial of fundamental human rights. Cuba today is a reminder of the worst  of the 20 th century. The average monthly income is $20.00. 

In 1959 when Mr Castro took over power it was one of the strongest economies in Latin America. Now Mr Trump has pledged his administration will do all it can to ensure the Cuban people can finally begin their journey towards prosperity and liberty.
