Rep. Seth Moulton to Join President on Historic Trip to Cuba
WASHINGTON, DC – Congressman Seth Moulton will join President Barack Obama on his historic trip to Cuba next week. It marks the first time in 88 years that a sitting U.S. President has visited the country. Congressman Moulton is a co-sponsor of the “Freedom to Travel to Cuba Act”. The bipartisan bill draws support from more than 60 cosponsors, calling for an end to travel restrictions for Americans heading to Cuba.
“I am honored to join President Obama on this historic visit to Cuba,” said Moulton. “The trip is a tangible example of diplomacy at work and will highlight the vast potential for trade, travel, and exchange of ideas between our countries.”
Moulton believes the trip is an “important step” in the efforts to normalize relations, noting that we will work to “bring an end to undemocratic practices”. In December 2014, President Obama announced the restoration of full diplomatic ties. According to a release from the Congressman issued earlier today, a majority of Americans (56%) and Latinos (62%) in the U.S. favor a change to current policies.
