President Obama on historic trip to Cuba

President Barack Obama is in Cuba this week where he will deliver a speech to the Cuban people, meet with President Raul Castro, and attend a U.S.-Cuba baseball game.

A major goal of the trip is to press the Cuban government to move more quickly on trade and other openings as a result of the U.S. changes in policy and regulations regarding Cuba since the president announced normalization with Cuba last year.

On this historic trip, President Obama will be accompanied by three cabinet secretaries including Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack, three dozen members of Congress, and a delegation of agriculture and business. President Obama is the first U.S. president to visit Cuba in 88 years.
