I don't get involved in the political arena publicly, but listening to this man brings a clear view of the path this country could face. Although I am not of Cuban descent, I grew up in Miami in the late 50's, 60's and early 70's. I had a front row seat to the struggle of the Cuban immigrants. It is a horrific thing to have gone through. We have always had our freedom, and not everyone understands what that means. I have seen it first hand.

"The Cuba Libre Story" on Netflix is interesting and informative. Highly recommended.

A great message. My wife spent 14 years as a second class citizen in Vietnam. She knows first hand what it is like not to be free. This Nov. both me and my wife will cast our vote fro President Trump.

This is why when Nancy Pelosi when to Miami Florida, specifically in the Cuban area, she was booed and told to **** off.

Americans of Cuban descent definitely get what we are up against. They have heard it all before, and they know what a terrible direction we are heading in.

She and Schumer should be told that about a dozen times a day.

None of her usual loudmouth bravado at that little gathering.

Not only the Cuban exiles can tell you what its like. All the immigrants from Eastern Europe who lived under the Communist bloc there. They KNOW what an abject failure communism is first hand. Melania can speak to that fluently, in 5 languages.
