Barack Obama and his family landed in Cuba on Sunday, marking the first time in 90 years a president has set foot in the communist nation.
According to Right Wing News, Obama was stunned when he stepped off Air Force One in Havana and was greeted by various Cuban government officials, but not Raul Castro. The Cuban leader typically always greets major world figures upon their arrival at Jose Marti International Airport, but he was noticeably absent on this occasion.
Castro’s snub was noticed by many people. including GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump.
Wow, President Obama just landed in Cuba, a big deal, and Raul Castro wasn’t even there to greet him. He greeted Pope and others. No respect

Raul Castro couldn’t be at the airport to greet Obama because he had some dissidents to torture first.

This snub undoubtedly came as extremely humiliating to Obama, but we think he got what he deserved!
