Marxist Cuban dictator Fidel Castro is dead at the age of 90.
Cubans who now live in Miami are thrilled.
The Los Angeles Times referred to the racist, murdering commie as a “charismatic icon.”
President-elect Donald Trump announced Castro’s death in a way only he could.
It took him four words.
Don’t overlook the exclamation point.
Fidel Castro is dead!

@realDonaldTrump Sadly nothing will change unless a strong leader like yourself starts Cuba back to prosperity.

From The Hill:
Cuban leader Fidel Castro has died at age 90, his brother Raul announced on state television in the early morning hours Saturday.
Raul Castro made a brief TV statement around 12:30 a.m. Eastern.
“It is with great pain I come to inform our country, friends of our America, and the world that today, Nov. 25, 2016[,] at 10:29 p.m., the commander in chief of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro Ruz, died,” he said.
Castro’s funeral will be Dec. 4 in Santiago, Cuba, after a nine-day mourning period and a tour of his ashes through the island country, according to multiple reports.
The former communist leader’s [d]eath had been failing for several years, and his brother took control of the government in 2008.
Castro was said to be worth $900 million.
