Included among the 27 visitors were Christians from Cuba, who continue to suffer brutal and violent persecution by the socialist Castro dictatorship.

President Trump met with dozens of victims of religious persecution at the White House on Wednesday as part of an ongoing effort by the administration to push for religious freedom abroad.

Twenty-seven people, including Christians from Burma, Vietnam, North Korea, Iran, Turkey, Cuba, Eritrea, Nigeria, and Sudan, Muslims from Afghanistan, Sudan, Pakistan and New Zealand, Jewish persecution victims from Yemen and Germany, a practitioner of Cao Dai from Vietnam and a Yazidi from Iraq all joined the president in the Oval Office as part of a four-day conference, called the Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom.

The UN Declaration of Human Rights strongly stipulates the right to practice one’s religion without impediment by the government. Cuba’s communist dictatorship has violated that right and almost all others in the declaration for more than a half century.
