Here's what you told us when we asked whether it's time to remove Trump's designation of Cuba as a State Sponsor or Terror.

Over 10,000 people and 100 advocacy groups have recently signed an open letter urging President Biden to reverse the Trump administration’s State Sponsor of Terrorism designation for Cuba. They also hope to reinstate Obama-era policy with the island nation.

There are currently four countries on this list: Cuba, Iran, Syria and North Korea. For as complicated as US-Cuba relations are – and say what you want because Cuba is definitely “complicated” – by simple definition, we don’t think Cuba qualifies for the “terrorist” designation. And, particularly not in the same vein as the three others on the list. But of course we want to know where you, our readers, stand on the issue. Should President Biden remove Cubas designation as a State Sponsor of Terrorism?

Be heard below.

All responses are anonymous.

We’ll share the results of this poll in our weekly newsletter.
