Liberals want the Embargo removed. Hardliners want to intervene with a sovereign country. Biden's in the middle.

(Note from El Equipo: This survey has ended. The results are below.) Here’s what you said about how you think Biden is handling the current Cuba situation: President Biden has been catching a lot of slack for his Cuba policy. Even before, but definitely since the July 11th protests in Cuba, he’s being accused by liberals of not doing enough to loosen the noose on the island and carrying out Trump’s policies. Hardliners have pressured him to intervene and even take a military stance to make changes in the Cuban government. And, while this domestication of international policy takes place, the only people suffering are the Cuban people.

There are short and long-term humanitarian, economic and political ramifications to whatever he does. He’ll never be fast enough for some or aggressive enough for others. Yet, despite being caught a bit with his pants down in July, we think he’s taking a logical, measured approach to figure out how best to handle a very complicated situation. Of course, that’s why we wanted to know what you think.

Hola todo el mundo. Sometimes our stories are sourced from multiple people on our team. Or, we like to keep you guessing... You know... anonymous. And, for that, soy el escritora; "El Equipo." We exist to amplify the voices of writers, photographers, and content creators in the space between the United States and Cuba, and we also feature stories from Puerto Rico, Latin America, and the Latinx community in the US. Topics of interest are personality-driven and include pop culture and music, featured current events, climate and the environment, and travel and tastemakers. Oh, and of course we're always 100% independent. No governments, businesses or other influencing factors play a role in our work.

  • Even your title is a lie. A majority of conservatives that understand Cuba also want to remove the Embargo, not just Liberals. They want to see what Cuba blames their problems on then. They currently blame the lack of food and the lack of medicine on the Embargo however they can buy medicine and food from the US, in fact Cuba bought 28.8 million dollars from the US in June. But of course they don’t have the money to buy what is really needed so they use the embargo as an excuse. The Cuban people are waking up. If we remove the Embargo, then everyone can see the truth. As far as Biden in the middle… he simply does not have a clue where, what, or when.
