As she watched President Donald Trump accept his nomination for reelection in 2020 at the Republican National Convention Thursday night, MSNBC host Joy Reid said she kept thinking it sounded like a speech from “Fidel Castro… That was a monarch. It was very much like Castro used to do.”
Castro was infamously a brutal Cuban Marxist dictator. His regime established a communist state in Cuba, where freedom was removed from people’s lives.

That resulted in many thousands fleeing for the United States.
Sadly, that’s what Reid seems to think of Trump.
