Obama Admin Won’t Rule Out Castro Visit to White House (National Review Online)
White House press secretary Josh Earnest refused to rule out a visit by Cuban President Raúl Castro to Washington, noting that leaders from other countries with spotty human rights records have already met with President Obama in D.C.
After Wednesday’s surprise announcement that the administration would seek to “normalize” relations with the embargoed Caribbean nation, Earnest said President Obama is open to visiting Cuba in the future.
And on Thursday, the press secretary made clear that the White House is also considering playing host to the aging Communist revolutionary.
