President Obama will speak directly to the Cuban people in a Tuesday address during his historic visit to the island nation. The speech was due to begin at 10:10 a.m.
The speech follows a press conference held by Obama and Cuba President Raúl Castro on Monday, during which the two leaders did not shy away from criticizing one another’s countries while asserting they were both committed to normalizing relations between the U.S. and Cuba.
Obama, the first sitting U.S. President to visit the country in 88 years, is expected to address concerns in Tuesday’s speech over human rights violations in Cuba, which boiled up during Monday’s press conference when Castro denied that Cuba was holding any political prisoners.
