'No Respect': Trump, Cruz, Lawmakers Bash Obama's Trip to Cuba

Hillary Accuses Trump of 'Bigotry,' 'Playing Coy With White Supremacists'


In advance of Tuesday's baseball game between the Cuban National Team and the Tampa Bay Rays, ESPN's "SportsCenter" Twitter account promoted a video about former Cuban President Fidel Castro and his love of sports.

“Savior and scourge, Fidel Castro was many things to many people,” "SportsCenter" tweeted to more than 25 million followers on Sunday. “One thing all can agree on: He loved his sports.”

After many social media users expressed outrage at the praise for the former dictator, the tweet was quickly deleted.

Cuba and Castro have been in headlines recently not only because of Tuesday's Cuba-Rays game, which is Major League Baseball's first trip to the country since 1999, but also because of President Obama's three-day visit.

GOP presidential candidates Donald Trump and Ted Cruz have publicly criticized Obama's trip to the Communist country, the first by a sitting U.S. president in nearly nine decades.
