U.S. Designates Cuba as State Sponsor of Terrorism

“Sends a clear message,” Secretary Pompeo said.

The State Department announced Monday that Cuba is being designated as a state sponsor of terror, citing its harboring of terrorists.

In a statement, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said, “The Trump Administration has been focused from the start on denying the Castro regime the resources it uses to oppose its people at home, and countering its malign interference in Venezuela and the rest of the Western Hemisphere.

The secretary continued, “With this action, we will once again hold Cuba’s government accountable and send a clear message: the Castro regime must end its support for international terrorism and subversion of U.S. justice.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For God’s guidance for the U.S. in evaluating and designating state sponsors of terrorism.
  • For State Department officials who continue their work during this time of transition.
  • For the people of Cuba and Venezuela who are living under the rule of Communism.
