Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry voiced his concerns about the Obama administration's stance on trade with Cuba and China at the Iowa Ag Summit Saturday.
"The administration basically empowered the Castro regime with no thought about helping the people," Perry said to summit host Bruce Rastetter. "I think we got a bad deal. The people of Cuba got a bad deal."
The former Texas governor also conveyed his frustration over the 2014 prisoner exchange for USAID subcontractor Alan Gross, who had been sentenced to 15 years in prison by the Cuban government in 2011.
