In four words, Donald Trump summed up the thoughts of many - Fidel Castro is dead!
Was it diplomatic?
But for those lives shattered by Castro's lengthy rule, it said what they felt.
Compared to President Obama, who talks about himself in the midst of the statement.
During my presidency, we have worked hard to put the past behind us, pursuing a future in which the relationship between our two countries is defined not by our differences but by the many things that we share as neighbors and friends – bonds of family, culture, commerce, and common humanity.
You can't forget the past.
The suffering for many for years was real.
Trump's tweet expresses the relief of the end of that chapter.
