President Joe Biden Discusses His Administration’s Comprehensive Strategy to Reduce Gun Crimes

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN: Folks, I want to start by recognizing the remarkable protests that are taking place in Cuba, with the Cuban people demanding their freedom from an authoritarian regime. And I don’t think we’ve seen anything like this protest in a long, long time — if, quite frankly, ever.

The United States stands firmly with the people of Cuba as they assert their universal rights. And we call on the government — the government of Cuba to refrain from violence or attempts to silence the voice of the people of Cuba.

United States President Joe Biden.
