Washington Post political investigations reporter Toluse Olorunnipa observed that Democrats don’t want to “go hard” on Cuba because they are being influenced by the more progressive members of their party who “agree” with many of the struggling country’s socialist policies.
In recent days Cuban protesters have expressed anger over rising prices, shortages of goods and poor health care amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“They are really being led by the progressive wing of the Democratic Party, and the progressive wing does not want to go hard against Cuba, against some of the things that the Castro regime may have been a part of it,” Olorunnipa argued on CNN’s “Inside Politics” Sunday.
