Donald Trump Has His Very Succinct Say On Fidel Castro
Donald Trump. Like the devil's son is the anti-Christ, Donald Trump is the anti-communist. He's built his empire on capitalist traits and his idea to 'Make America Great Again' is taking the essence of the America Dream and making it bigger, better, brighter and bolder. The foundation of his very existence is built on fundamentally capitalist concepts.
So it's not surprising that Donald Trump hasn't got a great deal of positivity to emanate after Cuban revolutionary and Communist Party leader Fidel Castro passed away this morning, but his literal, denotative tweet is a bit bizarre even for him.
Here's the tweet he relayed to the world.
Fidel Castro is dead!

Nine days of mourning have been declared in Cuba since his brother Raul stated on national television that he had died, and he will be cremated later today.
Castro, in death as in life, remains a divisive character and was a major player during the Cuban Missile Crisis, effectively allowing the communist Soviet regime to use it as a base during the height of the Cold War on the doorstep of the US.
His legacy, for better or worse, lives on and remains to this day in Cuba.
