Time for a mental exercise.
Let's imagine that the "land of the free" was, you know, actually the land of the free. Let's pretend that the government actually operated within the confines of the U.S. Constitution. How would an American president handle a trip to Cuba in that situation? What would he say?
Perhaps something like this:
Hello people of Cuba. I'm so very pleased to have the opportunity to take this short trip to visit you. Most of my foreign engagements are done via video conferencing now. But since our countries are so close, I was able to get away for a couple of hours.
