Sorry Republicans, Jay-Z and Beyonce’s Cuba Trip Was Legit
Three Republicans from Miami — all Cuban-American — had asked the Treasury Department to investigate whether the trip had been licensed or not.
A U.S. trade embargo against Cuba prohibits Americans from traveling to the country with said license being granted by the U.S. government.
The source told Reuters that the couple’s visit included meeting Cuban artists and musicians, eating at the city’s best privately run restaurants and hitting up several nightclubs.
The trip was described as a “people to people” cultural visit and meetings with Cuban officials and trip to the beach were avoided.
They were led on a walk around the city by Miguel Coyula, one of the city’s leading architects, and dined along with their mothers at La Guarida on their first night in town.
They’d arrived unannounced for their four-day visit on flight from Miami on Wednesday (April 3) and were instantly recognized.
