Florida Roundup: Obama Visits Havana, Tells Cuban People "Sí Se Puede"

Mar 25, 2016

President Obama's visit to Cuba this week drew criticism from Miami and praise from Cubans.

Cubans in Havana watched President Obama speak directly to them on live television, knowing that Cuban president Raul Castro was in the same room listening on. 

"I want the Cuban people, especially the young people, to understand why I believe that you should look to the future with hope, not the false promise which insists that things are better than they really are, or the blind optimism that says all your problems can go away tomorrow," said President Obama in a speech in Havana.
