President-elect Donald Trump has issued a warning to U.S. companies planning to move operations overseas: don’t do it. His words follow a Trump visit to an Indiana factory that was promised government incentives to keep jobs from going to Mexico. To cover this story, VOA sent out two reporters: One to Santa Catarina, Mexico and one to Indianapolis, Indiana. VOA’s Carolyn Presutti shows us what it’s like for workers in both cities. We begin in Indianapolis.
Former Cuban President Fidel Castro is dead at the age of 90. His communist government survived a U.S.-backed invasion of Cuban exiles, a superpower missile crisis, assassination plots and decades of U.S. economic sanctions. But Castro lived long enough to see Washington announce the re-establishment of full diplomatic relations with Havana and the subsequent visit by a U.S. president to the island in March 2016. VOA's Bill Rodgers has this profile of the man.
