(TELESUR) – The philosopher recalled that Cuba has shown its solidarity with other peoples despite the U.S. sanctions against it.

Asked about his country’s management of the pandemic, Chomsky noted that the Trump administration cut the health budget just shortly before the crisis began.
“The way that this has developed is surreal. In February, the pandemic was already wreaking havoc, everyone in the U.S. recognized it. Just in February, Trump presents budgets that are worth looking at… He made cuts amid a pandemic and increased funding for fossil energy industries, military spending, and the famous wall,” the U.S. philosopher recalled.
