While Obama has refused to attend the funeral of late Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia this weekend, the White House has just announced the president will visit the Communist nation of Cuba in March!
Obama has been ignoring Congress by unilaterally opening up U.S.-Cuba relations, and this is just the latest example of Obama bowing to our enemies!
From NBC News:
Barack Obama will become the first sitting American president to visit Cuba in nearly 90 years, in what would be a crucial turning point between the Cold War rivals that recently shed their decades-old hostilities.
Obama will visit the communist island nation in March, he said in a tweet. A senior administration official told NBC News that the details would be announced Thursday as part of a larger tour by Obama of Latin America.
Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro announced in December 2014 that they would normalize relations after decades of broken ties. A year later, Obama said he would consider visiting Cuba if there was evidence of significant improvements in civil liberties.
The last sitting president to visit the island was Calvin Coolidge, who addressed the Pan-American Conference of Western Hemisphere leaders in Havana in 1928.
Cuban officials are concerned that the executive actions taken by Obama to normalize relations could be reversed next year, given the opposition of leading Republican presidential candidates to restoring ties with Cuba.
Are you as outraged as I am that Obama would rather visit Cuba than honor an American hero like Scalia? Share your thoughts below!
