Cuban foreign minister questions US model of democracy
Havana, Jul 31 (Prensa Latina) Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez on Friday questioned the US model of democracy, which in an electoral year trampled the rights of its citizens.
'The United States presents its social system as a model of democracy. Even, in an election year, it demonizes progressive forces and ideas, tramples civil rights, encourages hatred, xenophobia and improves mechanisms for suppressing votes,' Rodriguez posted on Twitter.
That reality exposed by the Cuban foreign minister is reflected daily in US media, which in the last few days it goes from the elections and the mismanagement of the Covid-19 pandemic, to violence and anti-racism protests.
Several experts joined the rejection to President Donald Trump's suggestion to delay the November 3, 2020 elections, which they described as a maneuver to avoid defeat against Democrat Josep Biden.
The US president, who is in disadvantage against his alleged rival, proposed to postpone the elections, so he encourages false fears of electoral fraud facing the possible use of the Universal Vote by Mail.
