They know what it’s like to be abandoned by their country. And now they’re giving Republican presidential nominee Donald J. Trump their endorsement.
On Tuesday, the Bay of Pigs Veterans Association, an organization comprising the surviving Cuban freedom fighters who were cut loose by the U.S. during the abortive effort to topple Fidel Castro in 1961, gave their first-ever presidential endorsement — and it went to GOP nominee Donald Trump in Miami.
Accepting the endorsement at what Breitbart called the “spiritual home” of Brigada 2506 — the group of Cuban dissidents who make up the Bay of Pigs Veterans Association — Trump took the lectern to chants of “USA! USA!”
He told the audience that he was “humbled by this endorsement from true freedom fighters.” He also referenced the Damas en Blanco (Ladies in White), a “Cuban dissident organization composed of the wives, mothers, daughters and sisters of political prisoners.”
“They march quietly to church every Sunday and … are subject to physical and verbal violence and abuse by government-sanctioned mobs,” Trump told the audience. He added that his opponent “turns a blind eye to the human rights violations that occur every single day.”
As for the Bay of Pigs Veterans Association, a representative from the group called their endorsement a “no-brainer.”
In his introduction, the representative said that the group was concerned that “corruption in our public life has become rampant and has to be stopped. He also derided the “socialist progressive agenda of Hillary Clinton.”
You can see Trump’s speech at the event here:
Trump has clearly shown that he’s on the side of the military, speaking out against Obama’s broken Department of Veterans Affairs, the shoddy treatment given to our veterans otherwise and the fact that our military gains have been reversed by administration policy.
It’s little wonder, then, that our veterans seem to trust Trump. That’s especially true for those like the Bay of Pigs Veterans Association, who know what it’s like to be abandoned by their country.
Let’s hope the rest of Florida — and America — realizes what a “no-brainer” this is.
