U.S. Policy on Cuba Just Shifted: President Trump Reverses U.S. Policy on Cuba

LISTEN NOW! (Or WATCH FULL PROGRAM!) Wild things were happening with the relations between the United States and Cuba during the past Administration. It is important that we learn the history of what is and has taken place in our nation and in the nations around us. Only 90 miles south of Florida is the small island of Cuba, which was once a land of free people. Then Fidel Castro came and immediately began his oppressive leadership over the Cuban people.
Just moments after Fidel Castro took over leadership, he murdered 71 leaders. One of these leaders was the police chief of Santiago de Cuba. The police chief’s son, Luis Haza, who was only eight years old at the time, is a gifted and talented violin player. When the Castro regime learned of his musical talents, they immediately attempted to recruit him to play for Castro. But, the young Haza refused to comply.
As “NO” was not an acceptable answer for the Castro militants, they barged into one of Haza’s practice sessions and demand that he play his violin for him. As the young boy shook with fear, he began to play. The song he chose caused the entire room to immediately be silent. “The Star-Spangled Banner” was his choice of music. In an amazing full circle moment, while President Trump spoke regarding the U.S. policy towards Cuba, he not only spoke about Luis Haza, he gave the stage to Haza as he played the “The Star-Spangled Banner” just as he did as a young eight-year-old boy. It was this full circle moment that President Trump highlighted as he honored the Cuban people talking about his changes to the U.S. Policy with Cuba will no longer be as it has been.
“We all accept that all nations have the right to chart their own paths — and I’m certainly a very big believer in that — so we will respect Cuban sovereignty. But we will never turn our backs on the Cuban people. That will not happen.”  Considering the long-standing history and relationship between America and Cuba, one cannot deny the horrible oppression the Cuban people have experienced. President Trump recognizes that we can no longer tolerate such oppression. “Over the years, a special sympathy has grown between this land of the free, and the beautiful people of that island, so close to our shores and so deeply woven into the history of our region. America has rejected the Cuban people’s oppressors. They are rejected. Officially today, they are rejected.”
President Trump continued to share the immense hope that America represents to the Cuban people. “And to those people, America has become a source of strength, and our flag a symbol of hope. I know that is exactly what America is to you and what it represents to you. It represents the same to me.” The story of hope and encouragement is embodied in the overcoming life of Luis Haza and the remarkable journey he underwent as it all culminated in the same ballad being played before the President of the country that he loves so dearly.

This is such an encouraging moment. The Cuban people are such a beautiful people as the Holy Spirit has been moving mightily upon so many communities as reports have revealed a mighty revival is taking place in the land. These are such encouraging times for both Cuba as well as the United States. See the full report as you hear President Trump share the remarkable story of Luis Herez, his wonderful rendition of the Star-Spangled Banner with his violin, the prophetic words about Cuba, and so much more.
