CUBA REACHES THE WHITE HOUSE The first question was about Haiti and Cuba at Biden's White House press briefing yesterday with Angela Merkel. A CBS reporter asked, "With respect to Latin America and the developments there in the last week-plus, what are the circumstances under which you would send American troops to Haiti? When it comes to Cuba, what is your current thinking on American sanctions toward Cuba and the embargo? And today, your Press Secretary said that communism is a “failed ideology.” I assume that’s your view. I was wondering if you could also give us your view on socialism."
