Cuba pays the price for backing socialism in Venezuela
Cuba is actually paying a price for being the driver of pain in Venezuela and backing a failed socialist government there. It is just like the socialist in Cuba to never take responsibility for their own actions and to always blame the US when they screw up. It is also, unfortunately, too much like the current Washington Post to ignore Cuba's irresponsible government for their current circumstances. At the Post, too many of its writers have a blame Trump first approach to presenting the news.
