Ponte Vedra Beach, FL – In response to news that President Barack Obama will visit Cuba next month, the Ron DeSantis for Florida campaign released the following statement:

“President Obama has made his choice: appease the Castro dictatorship rather than stand with the oppressed Cuban people,” said Congressman Ron DeSantis. “The Obama administration has made major unilateral concessions to the Castro regime, yet the regime has responded by increasing political oppression and still harbors one of the FBI’s ten most wanted terrorists. This embarrassing visit continues to reward the bad behavior of the Castro dictatorship and weakens American’s standing abroad.”
