The Monday Times story -- titled "Marco Rubio Is Hardly a Hero in Cuba" -- delves into Rubio's family history in Cuba. It quotes a man on the Havana street where Rubio's father grew up saying "If Marco Rubio becomes president, we're done for."
"For the record, I'm proud that the Castro regime feels threatened by us. They fear freedom and democracy," Rubio tweeted. "My goal is a free Cuba. Lifting the embargo with no meaningful reforms will only strengthen Castro regime."
