St. Augustine, FL – In response to the announcement that President Barack Obama will visit Cuba next month, Rep. Ron DeSantis (FL-06) has issued the following statement:

“President Obama has chosen to cater to the Castro regime rather than stand on the side of the people oppressed by the Cuban dictatorship. The Obama Administration has been making major unilateral concessions to the totalitarian regime, and yet millions of Cubans continue to live in constant fear of persecution and violence. A visit to Cuba by a sitting President will embolden the regime and is an insult to those who have experienced brutality at the hand of the Castro brothers.”
