On his first day in Cuba, Barack Obama has put out a letter to the American people blaming the US for the poverty in Cuba. He wrote:

I know one visit, and one president, cannot erase the decades of history that have left so many Cubans in poverty or exile. But sometimes the most important changes begin with the smallest step. I believe in the Cuban people and their desire to build a future of their own choosing. And I believe that changing the way we do things between our countries will, over time, help make that possible.

The poverty caused by the communist dictators is now our fault. Obama has adopted the mantra of the far-left.

In fact, they are not poor because of our embargo. Cuba trades with many countries but the corrupt leaders keep the wealth.

Will this be a precursor for more wealth redistribution to Cuba as reparations or aide?

His itinerary includes this paragraph:

Of course, there are real differences between our political and economic systems. We have difficult histories that have prevented progress until now. But, on this historic trip, the President hopes to share his vision for what Americans and Cubans can do together to ensure a future for Cuba that reflects more freedom and opportunity for its people. That’s not just good for Cuba. It’s good for America — especially the millions of Americans that have deep and enduring ties to Cuba.

Why is he worrying about Cuba’s poor who will stay poor as long as they are communists when we have poor veterans, poor minorities, poor whites right here in the USA?

The letter:

¡Hola desde Cuba! Michelle, the girls, and I are here in Havana on our first full day in Cuba. Cubans have lined the streets to welcome us, and it’s humbling to be the first U.S. president in nearly 90 years to visit a country and a people just 90 miles from our shores.

Like so many Americans, I’ve only known the isolation that has existed between our two governments. I was born in 1961, the year of the Bay of Pigs invasion. A year later, a Cold War confrontation over Cuba pushed the world as close as it’s ever been to nuclear war. As the decades passed, the mistrust between our governments resulted in heartache for our two peoples, including Cuban Americans, many of whom have endured decades of separation from their homeland and relatives.

I’ve come to Havana to extend the hand of friendship to the Cuban people. I’m here to bury the last vestige of the Cold War in the Americas and to forge a new era of understanding to help improve the daily lives of the Cuban people.

There continue to be real and important differences between our governments, including profound differences on the way to promote safety, security, opportunity, and human rights. But there’s so much Americans and Cubans share — our cultures and passions, our hopes for the future, not to mention a love of baseball.

I know one visit, and one president, cannot erase the decades of history that have left so many Cubans in poverty or exile. But sometimes the most important changes begin with the smallest step. I believe in the Cuban people and their desire to build a future of their own choosing. And I believe that changing the way we do things between our countries will, over time, help make that possible.

So I’m looking forward to meeting and hearing directly from Cubans from all walks of life. And I’m confident that, working together with the Cuban people, our two countries can begin a new journey together that delivers progress for both our peoples.

Thank you,

President Barack Obama
