RUSH TRANSCRIPT:

TODD: “Let me start with Cuba. Because on this issue, you could take some of his statements and say he has been on both sides of what President Obama has done in trying to open up — reopen up relations with Cuba. He said he was fine with it back in the spring. Late in the campaign he seemed to indicate that he wanted to reverse some of the changes that he made. What can you clarify with us this morning on Cuba policy when it comes to President Trump?”
CONWAY: “Several things, chuck. First, President-elect Trump put out a very strong statement yesterday about Fidel Castro. He is not going to be one of these people romanticizing him as a hero. He was a dictator who oppressed and imprison and harmed and murdered people and separated families and has many decades of blood on his hands. Let’s be clear there. On the issue of diplomatic relations beinopened with Cuba, what President-Elect Trump says is he would be open to that. But got nothing in return. We pretend we are doing business with the Cuban people when we’re doing business with the Cuban government and military. They control everything. He doesn’t want us to be fooled. This is in keeping with the America first and Americans first and her interests abroad first. Policies of president-elect Trump you see in trade, you see it here wspect to Cuba. He wants to make sure we get things in return. It’s not always a unilateral can a capitulation to fo governments. He wants to make sure Cubans have the same freedoms as they do here. Make sure the political prisoners are released into freedom and make sure the American fugitives face the law.”
