Trump believes Cuba "responsible" for diplomats' illness but without evidence

President Donald Trump answers questions as he speaks with Senate Majority Leader Mitch Mc Connell of Ky. in the Rose Garden after their meeting at the White House Monday in Washington Trump believes Cuba "responsible" for diplomats' illness but without evidence

President Trump on Monday blamed the Cuban government for a mysterious series of possible sonic attacks on USA diplomatic personnel assigned to Havana.

The comments, which came during an impromptu Rose Garden press conference Monday with Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky, represented a departure from State Department messaging. I do believe Cuba's responsible.

"I do believe Cubas responsible". The president did not elaborate on whether he believes the regime of Raúl Castro perpetrated the attacks or did not move to prevent them. It has not accused the government, but repeatedly warned that Havana is responsible for the safety of foreign diplomats on its soil under the Vienna convention on diplomatic relations. "I do believe that, and it's a very unusual attack, as you know, but I do believe Cuba is responsible".

Last week, White House Chief of Staff John Kelly said the Cuban government "could stop the attacks on our diplomats", but he declined to say whether Trump is considering fully shuttering the embassy.

Since first disclosing the attacks in August, the Trump administration has steadfastly avoided accusing Cuba of perpetrating the attacks.

Questions also continue to swirl around the Cuban government's involvement in the attacks, given that experts say the country likely lacks the scientific expertise to launch such a sophisticated operation.

The United States still does not know the nature of the device or weapon being employed against its staff.

In response, the U.S. has withdrawn more than half the personnel from the USA embassy in Cuba and ordered the expulsion of 15 Cuban diplomats in the United States.

In September, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that Washington was considering closing down the U.S. embassy in Cuba following the incidents.
