President Biden said Thursday that he is considering establishing an internet source for the Cuban people after the government shut off access amid mass protests.
An internet blackout was enforced by the communist state Sunday after Cubans hit the streets in historic protests over food shortages, inadequate access to the coronavirus vaccine, and unreliable electricity.
“We’re considering whether we have the technological ability to reinstate that access,” Biden during a press conference with German Chancellor Angela Merkel Thursday.
Biden also dismissed both communism and socialism in answer to a question.
“Communism is a failed system, a universally failed system, and I don’t see socialism as a very useful substitute,” the president said.
“Cuba is, unfortunately, a failed state and repressing their citizens,” he continued. “There are a number of things that we are considering doing to help the people of Cuba, but they would require…a guarantee that they would not be taken advantage of by the government.”
