Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton has changed her position on Cuba, and will ask Congress to lift the U.S. embargo against the communist island.
GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush pointed out that Clinton has opposed the easing of “restrictions against Cuba,” but is now changing her tune, as the former First Lady and Secretary of State will make he big foreign policy announcement this Friday in Miami, Florida.
Both Bush and Clinton will take part in a forum earlier in the day at the National Urban League conference in Fort Lauderdale, which could allow Bush to take a jab at her new foreign policy position on Cuba.
Bush opposes the lifting the embargo, and has been critical of President Obama’s recent moves to “normalize”relations with the communist regime of Fidel Castro.
Expect the Cuban exile community to make their presence know at Clinton’s event at Florida International University.
The embargo can only be lifted by an act of Congress. Earlier this week, a bipartisan House bill was filed to end the U.S. embargo.
