First Sitting President to Step on Cuban Soil in Almost 90 Years

President Barack Obama, First Lady Michelle Obama, along with Sasha and Malia Obama landed at José Martí International Airport, just outside Havana, Cuba late Sunday afternoon. The visit is historic, the first by a sitting President of the United States since 1928, nearly 90 years ago.

"Back in 1928, President Coolidge came on a battleship, it took him three days to get here," President Obama said today. "It only took me three hours."
