A GOP senator who backs increased trade with the Cuban dictatorship once praised the policies of socialist dictator Robert Mugabe.

Jeff Flake of Arizona favors ending the embargo with Cuba but his 1987 BYU master’s thesis raises profound questions about his judgment backing the socialist dictator.
