White House: Obama to Visit Cuba in Next Few Weeks

HeadlineFeb 18, 2016

The White House is slated to announce today that President Obama will visit Cuba in the coming weeks. The trip would make President Obama the first sitting U.S. president to visit Cuba in nearly nine decades. This comes amid the normalization of relations between the two countries. Earlier this week, the United States and Cuba signed an agreement to restore regular U.S. commercial flights to Cuba for the first time in more than 50 years. The Obama administration has also approved the first U.S. factory in Cuba in more than 50 years, allowing a company from Alabama to assemble tractors there.
