Trump Wants Cuba to Hand Over Assata Shakur; Black Twitter Tells Him to Back Off

Black Twitter users went in on Donald Trump Friday after he called for the return of social activist Assata Shakur, who he deemed a “cop killer.”

“Return the fugitives from American justice!” Trump says in Miami, Fla., Friday, June 16, “including the return of the cop killer Joanne Chesimard!”

Trump, who referred to Shakur by her former name, appeared in a predominantly Cuban Miami neighborhood, CNN reported, to discuss his plans to cancel the Barack Obama administration’s policy that eased American tensions with Cuba.

 

Shakur, who is a member of the former Black Panther Party and the aunt of late rap icon Tupac Shakur, was convicted of murdering a New Jersey state trooper in 1977. Two years later, she escaped from prison before gaining asylum in Cuba.

Black Twitter users swiftly reacted to Trump’s call, which was made on what would have been Tupac’s 46th birthday.

And now Trump says he's goin after Pac's auntie in Cuba?? Announcing it on Pac's birthday? Leave Assata Shakur TF alone dude.

 

 

Trump wants Assata Shakur back and calling her a cop killer... go arrest the cops here who killed innocent people first.

 

 

 

Most of us respect the fact Caitlin Jenner is no longer Bruce, yet the US Pres & police continue calling Assata Shakur "Joanne Chesimard"

 
 

 

Y'all know Trump's bitch ass had no idea who Assata Shakur was before some good ole boy whispered her name in his ear.

 

 

Trump name checks Assata Shakur (calls her by her former name, Joanne Chesimard) as a dog whistle to his people.

 

 

 

Cuba ~ Please keep Sister Assata Shakur safe & don't return her 2 these racists idiots. Her fight was the fight of all African Americans ✊��

I wonder who told Trump that she even existed, and who she was, and to "want" Cuba to 'hand her over'.  

 

What’s happening is already system wide. They are underground  installing evil worms everywhere.This is not a conspiracy theory. These are signed bills from the man with Dead Fish Eyes.  It's purposeful.  That means rolling back rights from Chicago to Havana (Fish Eyes  has made it much harder to do biz in Cuba). They plan to bring the police state to the neighborhood. That further means destroying the protections of the law. FOR REAL. That why I generally say, forget Clinton! She’s a donkey or a face on a balloon. The Grump is a poisonous serpent.   SO DIFFERENT. We’ve got an un-fuckin-believably ignorant/arrogant racist at the helm with pale supremacist cavemen howling from the bleachers.  This may be the death of Babylon.  Hate is being encouraged across the board. Dead serious dictators derive power from divisiveness. I’ve been seeing this kind of thing popping out here and there. A lot of bills, not laws, that the ignorant fish signs, fuck everyone, even his own people with TrumpDon’tCare. Civil rights protections are being systematically dismantled and demolished.   FACTUAL

Cuba Pushes Back On Trump’s Threats and Demands for the Return of Political Prisoners

HAVANA (AP) — Cuba’s foreign minister rejected President Donald Trump’s new policy toward the island, saying Monday,“We will never negotiate under pressure or under threat” and refusing to return U.S. fugitives who have received asylum in Cuba.

In a hard-edged response to the policy announced Friday, Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez said from Vienna that Trump’s restrictions on transactions with the Cuban military would not achieve their objective of weakening the government. He said they would instead create unity behind the communist leadership.

He described fugitives such as Assata Shakur, a Black militant convicted in 1977 of the murder of a New Jersey state trooper, as political refugees who had received asylum from the Cuban government and would not be returned because the U.S. has no “legal or moral basis” to demand their return.

 

Surrounded by Cuban-American exiles and Cuban dissidents, Trump announced from a theater in Miami that the U.S. would impose new limits on U.S. travelers to the island and ban any payments to the military-linked conglomerate that controls much of the island’s tourism industry. Trump also declared that, “The harboring of criminals and fugitives will end. You have no choice. It will end.”

He said the U.S. would consider lifting those and other restrictions only after Cuba returned fugitives and made a series of other internal changes including freeing political prisoners, allowing freedom of assembly and holding free elections.

“When Cuba is ready to take concrete steps to these ends, we will be ready, willing and able to come to the table to negotiate that much better deal for Cubans, for Americans,” Trump said.
 
 

Rodriguez’ response Monday was a clear signal that there could be very little, if any, high-level U.S.-Cuba negotiation during Trump’s time in office. Already, while working-level meetings on topics such as search-and-rescue have taken place since Trump took office, no meetings between top diplomats have occurred. It’s a sharp contrast to Obama’s last year, during which top U.S. and Cuban diplomats met regularly to discuss topics including law-enforcement cooperation and compensation for Americans whose property was taken during the 1959 Cuban revolution.

“Cuba will not make concessions that harm its sovereignty,” Rodriguez said. “We have never done in the history of the revolution.”

 

This is multi-layered bullshit.

“He said the U.S. would consider lifting those and other restrictions only after Cuba returned fugitives and made a series of other internal changes including freeing political prisoners, allowing freedom of assembly and holding free elections.”

Naw. Among all else, Bannon-Trump went after Cuba to get Marco Rubio to kiss ass and to please older Cuban voters in Florida. Bannon-Trump is not saying that restrictions would be lifted if Cuba fully obeyed them. Bannon-Trump knows full well that Cuba will not comply.

Cuba got cleverly played by pushing back. Asking for Assata Shakur, etc. to be deported is nothing but an add-on. It is red meat distraction for Bannon-Trump to feed to their minions. This tricky propaganda has nothing to do with why Cuba got slapped by restrictions.

IMHO, of course!

All they really wants is for Cuba to open itself up for unbridled Corporate American Exploitation.

America won't be satisfied until Cuba allows American corporations to run through Cuba's natural resources, and environment like the plague of locusts in the Bible, and poison Cubans' food supply with soil-killing toxic Monsanto, et. al, non-reproducing, denatured, chronic disease causing, hormone disrupting and changing GMO seeds, and saddle Cuba and damn near all of its citizens with perpetual debt, the same way that Africans are allowing the West to do in Africa.

And, why doesn't America return Cuba's fugitives from Cuban justice back to Cuba?  Oh, I know why, because about 90% of them vote republican.

And, why won't America release all the political prisoners it has wasting away in prisons all across America? Oh, I know, because about 90% of them are Black.
