Fidel Castro died on Saturday at the age of 90 with the world having mixed reactions to the news.
Editor’s Remarks: The death of Fidel Castro did not come as too much of a shock to the world as the former revolutionary communist leader had stepped down from the presidency several years ago due to age and sickness. However, what was surprising were the different reactions to the news with most of the Western world’s leaders paying immense respect, joining China and most of Latin America. It stands in stark contrast to Donald Trump and the Cuban-Americans of Florida who celebrated the loss. It is no secret that the Cuban market is opening up to the world and this moment symbolises another major step in that direction.
What to watch: Fidel Castro, Raul Castro, Barack Obama, Donald Trump
