White House Won't Rule Out Presidential Visit To Cuba

Josh Earnest: “I assume like many Americans he has seen that Cuba is a place where they have a beautiful climate and a lot of fun things to do. So if there’s an opportunity for the president to visit I’m sure he wouldn’t turn it down.”

Will President Obama travel to Cuba now that he's leading a historic opening of formal relations with the island nation? All signs point to yes.

But the administration isn't ready to say so yet.

"There's nothing on the schedule right now," White House press secretary Josh Earnest told reporters Wednesday. He pointed to Obama's remarks earlier in the day, when the president said "high-ranking officials will visit Cuba."

"I certainly wouldn't rule out a presidential visit," Earnest said.

"I assume like many Americans he has seen that Cuba is a place where they have a beautiful climate and a lot of fun things to do," Earnest went on, after a reporter at the daily briefing pressed him. "So if there's an opportunity for the president to visit I'm sure he wouldn't turn it down."
