Vice President Nixon talks about Communist influence in the Western Hemisphere prior to presidential elections in the U.S.

The fourth presidential election debate held between Democratic nominee Senator John F. Kennedy and Republican nominee U.S. Vice President Richard Nixon in New York, United States on 21st October 1960. ABC news correspondent Quincy Howe speaks during the fourth Kennedy-Nixon presidential debate. He speaks that the candidates would answer and comment upon questions put by these four correspondents: Frank Singiser of Mutual News, John Edwards of ABC News, Walter Cronkite of CBS News and John Chancellor of NBC News. Frank Singiser puts the first question to Vice President Nixon. He asks Nixon the way he would handle Fidel Castro's regime and prevent establishment of Communist governments in the Western Hemisphere and why his policy is better for peace and security of the United States in the Western Hemisphere. Nixon answers that Senator Kennedy's policies and recommendations for the handling of Castro regime are dangerously irresponsible recommendations that he's made during the course of this campaign. Nixon speaks that what Senator Kennedy recommends is that the U.S. government should give help to exiles and to those within Cuba who oppose Castro regime, provided they are anti-Batista. Nixon says the United States have five treaties with Latin America, including the one setting up the Organization of American States in Bogota in 1948, in which the U.S. has agreed not to intervene in the internal affairs of any other American country. He further says that if the U.S. follows recommendations of Senator Kennedy then the country would probably be condemned in the United Nations and it would result in an open invitation to Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev to come into Latin America and to engage the U.S. in a civil war. He speaks about quarantining Cuban Prime Minister Fidel Castro by cutting off trade and diplomatic relations with Cuba.
