President Obama Speaks In Havana During Historic Trip To Cuba

"This is a historic visit. And it’s a historic opportunity to engage with the Cuban people."

History was made in Havana Monday, where President Obama became the first US president to set foot there in nearly a century.

It’s been 88 years since a sitting president visited the communist country.

Tensions between the US and Cuba have been easing for more than a year now.

The president went to a wreath laying ceremony at the Memorial to Jose Marti before meeting up with Cuban President Raul Castro.

They held bilateral talks about everything from human rights, to what it will take to normalize relations between the two countries, including putting an end to US’ trade embargo.
