The President will make history, becoming the first sitting President to visit Cuba since Calvin Coolidge traveled there in 1928.
FOX's Jon Decker has more from the White House:
The President's trip will take place on March 21 and 22, in a tweet he wrote, "We still have differences with the Cuban government that I will raise directly."
But that's not stopping the criticism over the trip from Republican Presidential candidate Marco Rubio, whose parents emigrated from Cuba.
(Rubio) "There's no elections in Cuba. There's no choice in Cuba and so my whole problem, I want the relationship between the U.S. and Cuba to change. But it has to be reciprocal."
Rubio at a CNN town hall last night. The trip comes 14 months after the President formally reopened ties with Havana.
At the White House, Jon Decker, FOX News.
Next month, I'll travel to Cuba to advance our progress and efforts that can improve the lives of the Cuban people.
