TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - Mixed emotions continue around the world just three days after the announcement of the death of Cuban Leader Fidel Castro.

Now, many are left wondering how this will affect relations between the United States and Cuba.

Thousands of Cubans visited a memorial to the former leader in Havana's plaza of the revolution, citizens bidding farewell to the man who ruled the country for nearly a half a century. 

Castro died Friday night.

It's unclear how U.S and Cuban relations will move forward following Castro's death.

"By the Cubans, very very much immortalized in terms of a stong leader. From the Cuban-American side the complete opposite side of the spectrum. That side they don't see the reason they're here is because a harsh dictator sent him here into a very very cruel circumstances," said Dr. Richard Murgo, a political contributor for WTXL. 

President-Elect Donald Trump has threatened to undo President Barack Obama's recently renewed diplomatic ties to the country, while saying his administration will do all it can to ensure prosperity and liberty for the Cubans.
