Biden admin official under fire for tweeting Cuban protests are about COVID concerns

Biden admin official Julie Chung is under fire from conservatives after claiming Cuban protests are related to concerns about rising COVID cases/deaths.

Chung, Acting Assistant Secretary for U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Western Hemisphere Affairs, wrote “Peaceful protests are growing in #Cuba as the Cuban people exercise their right to peaceful assembly to express concern about rising COVID cases/deaths & medicine shortages. We commend the numerous efforts of the Cuban people mobilizing donations to help neighbors in need.

Rep. Dan Crenshaw fired back “No they’re chanting LIBERTAD. Stop playing cover for communists and support the Cuban people. My god. Why is that so hard for you.”

Candace Owens also replied, writing:

They are really doing it, guys.
Joe Biden’s filthy administration— which is working with China to bring communism to America—is pretending the eruption in Cuba is over Covid-19 and not over the EVIL communist regime.

Do not forget this moment.

Call these dogs out. #SOSCuba
