“It would be a mistake not to declare in Cuba that they have made some good advances in health care,” the 78-year-old politician admitted in an interview granted to the 60 Minutes program of the CBS network and broadcast this Sunday.
They are sending doctors all over the world. They have made some progress in education, ”said the Vermont senator who aspires to face Republican Donald Trump in the November 3 presidential elections.
It turns out that the presenter Anderson Cooper asked the current candidate for the nomination of the blue force to explain his comments of 1985, when he praised some of the social programs implemented by the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution Fidel Castro.
According to a video clip from more than 30 years ago, the senator said at the time that Fidel Castro “educated the children, gave them medical attention, totally transformed society.”
Although he made it clear that his “socialism” is not that of Venezuela or Cuba and stressed that the type of society in which he believes is in which he exists in countries such as Denmark, Finland and Sweden, the legislator said that it is “unfair to say simply that everything is wrong »on the island.
When Fidel Castro came to office, do you know what he did? He had a massive literacy program, ”Sanders emphasized, referring to the cultural revolution that allowed in just one year (in 1961) to eradicate illiteracy and facilitate universal access to different levels of education for free in the Caribbean country.
