Obama and Trump Have Reacted Differently to Castro's Death

Donald Trump and Barack Obama handled the news of Cuban dictator Fidel Castro's death very differently in the early Saturday news cycle.  

In a statement issued hours after Catro's death, Trump labeled the Cuban Communist as a brutal dictator.

"The world marks the passing of a brutal dictator who oppressed his own people for nearly six decades.  Fidel Castro’s legacy is one of firing squads, theft, unimaginable suffering, poverty and the denial of fundamental human rights," Trump said.

Obama, on the other hand, was more sympathetic to the Cuban leader.  "Fidel Castro altered the course of individual lives, families, and of the Cuban nation.  History will record and judge the enormous impact of this singular figure on the people and world around him," he said in a White House statement.

Obama also offered condolences to the Castro family.
