In July, CBS4’s Jim DeFede went one-on-one with Trump. DeFede specifically asked him about doing business with Cuba.
DeFede said to him, “You must have over the years looked with an eye toward Cuba and thought, ‘What an amazing opportunity Cuba would be for an investment.’”
“Well I think at the right time Cuba would be a good opportunity for investment. I think probably the time’s not right… there are a lot of things that are wrong with Cuba right now.”
Trump’s hopes of winning the White House hinges on whether he can win Florida’s 29 electoral votes.
