“I have a lot of close friends who are Cuban Americans, and I’ve heard the stories of their families escaping,” GloZell Green told Obama. “The guy puts dic in dictatorship. How do you justify dealing with the Castros?”

Obama explained his recent move to renew diplomatic relations with Cuba, aruging the United States’ decades long embargo has not worked toward bringing democracy to the island. Watch the video above to here some of the touch questions the president had to answer by these youtube stars.
