  • Cuban President Fidel Castro addressing the United Nations General Assembly in New York

"I remind the senator and the progressive movement that the Castro regime is a threat, not only by the way to the national security of the United States, but also to all of the democracies in this hemisphere". He initiated a major literacy program. "But sure, Bernie, let's talk about his literacy program", Michael Bloomberg tweeted.

As Lead Republican of the House Foreign Affairs committee, I've seen the disastrous consequences of socialist dictatorships around the world and am gravely concerned that the leading Democrat nominee has high praise not only for Fidel Castro, but for the Chinese Communist Party.

After insisting he has opposed authoritarianism consistently, he then defended authoritarianism on the debate stage.

World Health Organization raises coronavirus risk assessment to 'very high'
The Italy Ministry of Health is reporting 650 infected individuals with the new Sars-CoV-2 coronavirus , including 17 deaths. Friday's figure was the lowest rise in new cases since January 24, when 259 new infections were reported.

Mr. Sanders last weekend told CBS's "60 Minutes" program that the Castro regime had some laudable accomplishments in the area of education. He had a literacy program. Is that a bad thing? "When Fidel Castro came into office, you know what he did?" Sanders' defense of Castro.

"If anyone wants to know the devastation of socialism and the tyranny that so often accompanies it, I invite them to speak to some of my constituents, including the thousands of former political prisoners and the relatives of current political prisoners, who have witnessed firsthand the destruction that it causes", the Florida Republican said. "You know what? I think teaching people to read and write is a good thing", said Sanders.

"I have been extremely consistent and critical of all authoritarian regimes all over the world including Cuba, including Nicaragua, including Saudi Arabia, including China, including Russian Federation", he continued, drawing applause from the crowd. China is an authoritarian country, but can anyone deny, I mean the facts are clear, that they have taken more people out of extreme poverty than any country in history. Sanders said Tuesday during a Democratic presidential debate. "All the Cuban people were going to rise up in rebellion against Fidel Castro", Sanders said at the time. On Wednesday, he tweeted a video in which President Barrack Obama praised Cuba's progress in education and health-care. "Sanders, today one of the strongest candidates for the nomination of the Democratic Party to the November presidential elections, recognized Cuba's role in sending doctors worldwide", the paper wrote, according to the Miami Herald.
