Trump blames Castro regime for injuries to USA diplomats

Trump blames Castro regime for injuries to USA diplomats”

The above clip was nearly a blip but contained a potentially major diplomatic slip-up on Trump's part after a reporter asked whether Cuba could have stopped the mysterious, possibly sonic attacks on USA diplomats that resulted in a civilian travel warning.

Asked by reporters whether he agreed that the Cuban government is capable of halting the mystery attacks, Trump said: "I do believe Cuba is responsible".

"I do believe Cuba is responsible". The president did not elaborate on whether he believes the regime of Raúl Castro perpetrated the attacks or did not move to prevent them. "But I do believe Cuba is responsible", Trump said at an impromptu news conference at the White House.

The State Department has said it does not know who caused the attacks or why, but it ordered non-essential personnel and families out of Cuba late last month, leaving the embassy operating with a 60 percent reduction in its staff.

Since first disclosing the attacks in August, the Trump administration has steadfastly avoided accusing Cuba of perpetrating the attacks. But the administration had not blamed the Cuban government for the attacks.

The United States still does not know the nature of the device or weapon being employed against its staff.

The Cuban government has repeatedly stated it had nothing to do with the incidents.

The US and Cuba reopened diplomatic relations in 2015 after half a century of estrangement, but the attacks on Americans and steps taken by Washington in response have started to unravel those budding ties. "Cuba has never allowed nor will it ever allow its territory to be used by third parties with that goal".

In September, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that Washington was considering closing down the U.S. embassy in Cuba following the incidents.
