President-elect Donald Trump took to Twitter on Saturday morning after the long-term previous Cuban pioneer, Fidel Castro, passed on Friday at 90 years old.
“Fidel Castro is dead!” Trump tweeted.
Neither Trump nor US President Barack Obama has discharged authority proclamations on Castro’s demise.
Castro, whose wellbeing had been coming up short for a considerable length of time, was pronounced dead at 10:29 p.m. neighborhood time, his sibling and current Cuban leader Raul Castro declared on state-run TV.
“At 10:29 in the night, the chief commander of the Cuban revolution, Fidel Castro Ruz, died,” Raul Castro said in the televised address. “Ever onward, to victory.”
Obama has endeavored to normalize relations with Cuba in the course of recent years. He turned into the first sitting president to visit the Communist-ruled island since Calvin Coolidge in March.
Trump frequently criticized Obama’s Cuba approach on the campaign trail. However, it’s vague how the president-elect will proceed with relations with the island country.
