WATCH: Conservative Dismisses Trump's Cuba Policy Critics On Fox News

No love for brutal dictators.


The left and their allies are in full panic mode after President Donald Trump will reinstate the travel ban on the communist nation of Cuba.

Ben Rhodes, a speechwriter for former President Barack Hussein Obama, took to social media to blast the reversal of appeasement put on by the previous administration. "I'm sorry for the Cubans who will be hurt by a mean spirited policy (that’s) about keeping a political promise to a few people at their expense."

The Washington Free Beacon editor in chief Matthew Continetti appeared made a Fox News appearance on Friday to say that criticism of Trump’s new Cuba is overstated and exaggerated.

Watch the comments below:

“America’s Newsroom” anchor Shannon Beam asked Continetti about Rhodes tweet specifically.

He replied, "I suppose Ben Rhodes is happy that a lot of the money then is going to the Cuban military because that's exactly what the Trump policy is trying to address. He added, "I actually think a lot of the reports on the Trump-Cuba policy have kind of overstated the impact. When you get to the nitty-gritty, Shannon, it seems that this may affect some travel. But overall, people who want to use AirBnB, for example, with a visit to Havana and such, they won't be affected. The real issue here is trying to limit the profits the Castro regime and its military make off of the Cuban people, which remain a captive population."

Continetti also mentioned Robert Mueller’s special probe into the conspiracy theory that President Trump has ties to Moscow, specifically the look into Jared Kushner’s involvement.

He explained, "It's exactly what Trump officials and many congressional Republicans were worried about, Shannon, when they urged against the appointment of a special counsel. That was taken out of their hands after the president fired Jim Comey. Comey released his memos under his own admission with the express purpose of having a special counsel appointed. Then Deputy (Attorney General Rod) Rosenstein appointed Robert Mueller."

He continued, "Now they have a special counsel office that has little oversight. It is, in many cases, in these counsels you find that they range far and wide from what they are initially supposed to investigate, which in this case was a charge of collusion with Russia, for which no evidence has been found."
