Washington-. United States Congressman Jim McGovern said today that he was not only baffled, but also angry at President Joe Biden’s slowness regarding Cuba.

“I am not only baffled, but I am also angry,” McGovern, a member of the US House of Representatives of Congress from Massachusetts, wrote on his X social media account.

This policy, which is a continuation of Donald Trump’s, “is simply stupid. It is counterproductive. “It is harming the very people we say we care about,” he stated.

McGovern is one of the most active congressmen on Capitol Hill in seeking the path of normalization of bilateral relations, something that began during Barack Obama’s second term (2009-2017) when positive steps were taken in that direction.

However, Trump’s arrival at the White House in January 2017 meant the beginning of the end of those advances.

On the microblogging platform itself, Washington State Representative Pramila Jayapal expressed, for her part, that she applauded President Biden for taking the important “first step.”

He said that in this way we are “recognizing our security cooperation with Cuba,” referring to the announcement yesterday of the island’s elimination from a list of those that “do not fully cooperate” in the fight against terrorism.

Japayal stressed that now what must be achieved is to eliminate Cuba’s designation from the list of State sponsors of terrorism.

In that sense, the Cuban Foreign Minister, Bruno Rodríguez, thanked the efforts of US congressmen, who have urged Biden to remove Cuba from that arbitrary and unilateral list.

Cuba was first included on the State Department’s list of sponsors of terrorism during President Ronald Reagan’s administration in 1982, but in 2015, then-President Barack Obama said that designation had no merit and withdrew it.

However, on January 12, 2021, days before leaving office, Trump bequeathed to Biden the reinclusion of Cuba in such a list, which he maintains – until now – despite the demand that he rectify that position in his policy. towards the Caribbean nation.
