Bruno Rodriguez Parrilla, Cuban Minister of Foreign Affairs called the speech before the UN General Assembly by US President Donald Trump slanderous and pointless, according to Prensa Latina news agency.
These were statements full of threats for the southern countries, particularly for our America, and what I hear among the UN delegations is that it arouses rejection and also mockery, Rodriguez Parrilla told Telesur.
It was also a slanderous speech, with the manipulation of the lie that is typical of the politics and government management, with fake accusations that nobody can believe anymore, the Cuban diplomat added.
Minister Rodriguez said that Trump with his words seeks to frighten U.S. voters with socialism, I feel he spoke as if he were the emperor of a new era, but he felt uncomfortable in his way of behaving and hardly received any applause.
Trump, in the Minister's opinion, is trying to mislead the international community and the American public in general from the huge and growing internal problems in that country.
He also referred to the fact that 158 congressmen are seeking impeachment against Trump, and so are dozens of congressional leadership figures, "it seems like a very serious matter," he observed.
"Today's speech by the White House chief was boring, more of the same, an old speech and mismatched from the reality of the US and the international scene, Rodriguez Parrilla concluded.
