The former governor of Florida Jeb Bush said today that the only two countries that "have improved" with the foreign policy of President Barack Obama have been the regimes of “Cuba and Iran."
Accompanied by his wife, the Mexican Columba, and in a neighborhood where Cubans prevail, the Republican politician said that Obama has failed when it comes to "support the people who are being persecuted.”
“We need leaders who recognize that the US presence in the world is not dangerous but which in fact is necessary," said the brother of former President George W. Bush (2001-2009).
The Republican has been very critical about the restoration of diplomatic ties with Cuba, announced last December by President Obama, a gesture he considered as a "misstep."
Bush's speech, who has not yet formalized his candidacy, again focused on foreign policy, as it has done in recent weeks throughout the country.
