Obama’s Cuba Visit: President Obama has made history as the first president to visit Cuba in over 80 years. He tweeted, “Que bolá Cuba? Just touched down here.” This is the first time Air Force One has ever landed on Cuban soil.
¿Que bolá Cuba? Just touched down here, looking forward to meeting and hearing directly from the Cuban people.

President Obama landed with a lot of big name business executives, including Starwood, that is set to open a new hotel in Cuba. He and his family will tour Old Havana on Sunday, among other stops. On Monday, President Obama will meet with President Raul Castro, lay a wreath at the Jose Marti Memorial and “participate in a discussion about entrepreneurship and opportunity with cuentapropistas, or Cuban entrepreneurs,” the White House wrote on Medium. On Tuesday, “the First Family will attend a baseball game between the Tampa Bay Rays and the Cuban National team at the LatinoAmerican Stadium.”

Right wing heads are exploding, starting with Donald Trump and Ted Cruz, about Obama’s Cuba visit:
I have a word for the people of Cuba who will witness the gaudy spectacle in Havana: America has not forgotten you: https://t.co/AiTSTraOPA

Wow, President Obama just landed in Cuba, a big deal, and Raul Castro wasn't even there to greet him. He greeted Pope and others. No respect
