Upon hearing the news today that Cuban President Fidel Castro had died there were two separate expressions given.
President Barack Obama, who has made restoring diplomatic ties with Cuba a hallmark of his administration, offered America’s hand in friendship to the Cuban people following the passing. ‘History will record and judge the enormous impact of this singular figure on the people and world around him,’ Obama said in a statement.
Obama was mature and speaking to the future needs of the international community.
Meanwhile Donald Trump tweeted at 8:08 a.m.: “Fidel Castro is dead!”
The tone of his comment will also be noted.
