Cuban president congratulates Donald Trump

Cuban President Raul Castro has congratulated Donald Trump on the election victory, in what appears to have been a terse message to the man who could roll back two years of detente.

In a single-sentence statement, Cuba’s foreign ministry says Castro “sent a message of congratulations to Mr. Donald J. Trump for his election as president of the United States.”
