While news outlets began to flesh out the effects of President Obama's announcement on Cuba Wednesday — travel, cigars, rum — Senator Marco Rubio wasted no time in pushing back.
"Today's announcement from the White House is so profoundly disappointing," Sen. Marco Rubio said.
"I think they're going to struggle to get the votes to fund an embassy or get an ambassador appointed — and I'll have more to say about that in the coming year," Rubio explained to CNBC.
