Obama Is Taking A Cuban Vacation!

Cuba is a beautiful country.

Already, the dorky robot Marco Rubio slammed President Barack Obama for not attending the funeral of Anthony Scalia. He also went after the president for doing something that he'll never do.

Visit a country that the United States once called an enemy.

As expected, Rubio, Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and the conservative agitators will blast Obama for his announced trip to the island of Cuba. He will take the trip in March to visit the American diplomatic post and interact with Cuban leader Raul Castro.

This will be the first time in 80 years, a sitting U.S. president will visit the Communist nation.

The United States and Cuba have established relations after decades of bitter feuding.
Like a boss. President Barack Obama opened relations with Cuba and managed to get Iran to disarm their nuclear weapons.
A National Security Council official plans to make the announcement tomorrow at the White House briefing.

The trip is planned for March 21-22 before the president flies to Argentina.

The move comes roughly 15 months following the president's pledge with Raul Castro to reopen diplomatic channels following a prisoner exchange and the humanitarian release of U.S. contractor Alan Gross in December 2014.

Since the announcement, the two countries have had a series of diplomatic talks, leading to the reopening of embassies last summer and the recent deal restoring commercial air traffic.

The last and only sitting U.S. president to visit the island nation only 90 miles south of the Florida keys was Calvin Coolidge, in 1928, to address the Sixth Annual International Conference of American States in Havana.

He met with Cuba's President Gerardo Machado, who was in office from 1925 to 1933, until he was forced into exile.

President Jimmy Carter traveled to Cuba in 2002, 20 years after leaving office, at the invitation of President Fidel Castro.

Carter also made a trip in 2011.
