Obama family’s historic three-day trip is the first by a US president to Cuba in 88 years which believed to be culmination of a diplomatic opening announced by Cuban President Raul Castro and Obama in December 2014 by ending Cold War-era estrangement, started when the Cuban revolution drove a pro-American regime in 1959.
