White House ‘Hung Up’ On Senator Who Pleaded Help For Activist Being Tortured By Cuban Communists, Senator Says

The Daily Wire

Democrat President Joe Biden’s White House reportedly hung up on a U.S. senator who called the administration seeking to get help for an activist who is being tortured by the communist regime in Cuba.

Sen. Rick Scott (R-FL) reached out to the administration to discuss reports that José Daniel Ferrer, a human rights activist and the leader of the Patriotic Union of Cuba (UNPACU), is being tortured by the communist regime.

“The @WhiteHouse just hung up on me when I called to talk to someone about the horrific torture & abuse @jdanielferrer is experiencing as a prisoner of the illegitimate communist Cuban regime,” Scott tweeted. “This isn’t just weakness; it’s shameful cowardice. I won’t tolerate it.”

Ferrer had his right to home detention revoked back in August and was ordered to serve a four-year prison sentence on charges that critics say are politically motivated.

Scott has been a vocal advocate for Ferrer, warning that the communist regime was trying to end his life by subjecting him to psychological and physical torture.
