Statement by Senator Bernie Sanders on President Obama's Historic Visit to Cuba
SEATTLE – U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders on Sunday issued the following statement after President Barack Obama landed in Havana, Cuba, making him the first U.S. president to visit the country in 88 years:
"I applaud President Obama for making history by traveling to Cuba and moving relations between our two countries into a new era. This is an approach that is long overdue. I continue to stand by his calls for Congress to fully lift the failed embargo. Fifty years of Cold War is enough. It is time for Cuba and the United States to turn the page and normalize relations."
