Mensaje Presidencial Conmemorando el Da de la Independencia de Cuba

Hoy los cubanos en todo el mundo celebran el veinte de mayo, da de la

a todos los cubanos en este da. Mi esperanza para el pueblo cubano es que

pronto puedan gozar de las mismas libertades y derechos que tenemos todos

On behalf of the people of the United States, I send greetings to the Cuban
