Why President Obama should bring Cuban baseball players on his historic trip to Cuba

Exavier  discusses the thawing of United States relationship with Cuba, the president’s historic visit to Cuba in March, the validity of Cuban American Republicans’ opposition to the move, and why Obama should use defected Cuban Major League Baseball players to diffuse the politics behind the visit.
