Back in December, in an interview with Yahoo! News, President Obama said this about the possibility that he'd visit Cuba in 2016:
“I am very much interested in going to Cuba, but I think the conditions have to be right.”
Most people thought he meant he first wanted to see more democratic and economic change on the socialist island. Since then, Cuban President Raúl Castro hasn’t announced any sort of reforms like freer political speech, multi-party elections or full Internet access.
