MIAMI (AP) — The Cuban government is rejecting what it calls President Donald Trump's hostile rhetoric. Yet island officials say they remain willing to continue "respectful dialogue" on topics of mutual interest.

Diplomatic relations restored just two years ago will remain intact and the countries will maintain embassies. But Trump vowed that trade and other penalties would stay in place until a long list of prerequisites is met.

Among them are releasing political prisoners, halting what the U.S. says is abuse of dissidents, and allowing greater freedom of expression

Good try to draw attention away from the Mueller investigation.

He hasn't spoken about the apparent death of 7 sailors yet, has he? I listened to his weekly address and it wasn't there. Probably recorded the address earlier than usual so he could go to Florida. Just seems to be unable to do the expected things...

Sorry Sparky - he wasn't in Marlo over the weekend - Disappointed?  I see by your multiple posts on his timely lack of timely responses you have joined the "Resistance" - nice.


I like my guns like Obama likes his voters. Undocumented and unregistered.
