Leftist political commentator Van Jones compared Donald Trump to Cuban dictator Fidel Castro during CNN’s election coverage on Tuesday.

Jones said, “I think if you’re Marco Rubio, there’s a personal reason that it’s hard to get out that’s not the obvious one. His family fled Cuba because of a strongman who came to power and from his point of view was violent, was irresponsible.” (RELATED: Rubio Suspends Campaign After Florida Loss [VIDEO])

Jones continued, “When you see Rubio saying, ‘I just don’t know if I can get there emotionally,’ that’s not just political calculation about ‘I’m going to trick these people.’ I think he’s saying, ‘I don’t know if I, knowing what strongmen do, what authoritarians do, if I can support this guy [Trump].’ So I think you got to give him a moment to try to figure out what he’s going to do going forward.” (RELATED: Glenn Beck Warns That Trump Is Adolf Hitler [VIDEO])
