Tensions between the United States and Cuban governments have fluctuated between varying degrees of sensitivity for decades now. But President Barack Obama has been working steadily towards mending that relationship since Dec. 17, 2014 when he made the announcement that the two governments were going to restore their relationship, according to the New York Times.
To further endorse this mission, Obama made history on Sunday (March 19) when he became the first U.S. President to set foot on Cuban soil in 88 years. Obama will be spending the net few days touring the country’s landmarks and speaking for the people. He will also play a role in the first meeting between U.S. and Cuban political leaders in more than 50 years.
