NEW YORK – Caribbean politicians and nationals in the United States yesterday welcomed the re-election of President Barack Obama, describing it also as “unbelievable and unprecedented”. Caribbean Community (CARICOM) governments are yet to fully comment on Obama’s victory, but Trinidad and Tobago’s Prime Minister Kamla Persad Bissessar said “he earned his re-election, he remained grounded in the politics of hope and delivery to the people. Congrats President Obama,” Obama lives on,” she said in a text message to the Trinidad Express newspaper. Obama, the first Black man to occupy the White House, successfully fought off a challenge from his Republican challenger Mitt Romney, who had told American voters that the Obama policies over the past four years had made them worse off.
