"As the Mayor of the City with the largest Cuban-American population in the United States, I am angered and extremely concerned with the latest development," he said, adding that "while alarming, this should not come as a surprise, since Castro's Cuba has never been a friend to the United States."
Bovo went on to share that Cuba belongs on the list of state sponsors of terrorism, expressing that "while woke activists have advocated to remove Cuba from this list for years, this latest collaboration with China adds to the myriad of reasons that justifies Cuba's position on the list."
Finally, he directed his disappointment at lawmakers, noting that "while our policymakers remain distracted by social issues peddled by fringe extremists, our enemies are taking advantage of our weaknesses on the world stage and colluding to destroy our great County."
"As a result of the Biden Administration's timidness and refusal to lead on this issue, China continues to push the envelope in our hemisphere," Bovo warned.
