President Obama arrived Sunday in Cuba, marking the start of an historic trip in which he’ll try to further improve U.S. relations with the isolated island country and encourage its communist leaders to make life better for their citizens.
The three-day trip follows Obama’s announcement roughly a year ago that his administration and the Cuban President Raul Castro’s government would try to improve diplomatic relations after roughly a half-century of acrimony.
“I believe that the best way to advance American interests and values, and the best way to help the Cuban people improve their lives, is through engagement,” Obama said last month in announcing the trip. “I’ve always said that change won’t come to Cuba overnight. But as Cuba opens up, it will mean more opportunity and resources for ordinary Cubans. And we’re starting to see some progress.”
Americans have mixed views about the new alliance with the former Cold War foe.
