"President Obama didn't come here for the Cuban government," Miami Beach Mayor Philip Levine told Newsy. "President Obama came to Cuba for the Cuban people."
"In the United States, we have a clear monument to what the Cuban people can build," President Barack Obama said in Havana. "It's called Miami."
"I think a lot of Cuban Americans that were here felt a wonderful warmth and excitement in their hearts when the president recognized them," the Miami Beach mayor told us. "And we want to empower the Cuban people. They're the ones that are going to make the change and decide how they want their lives to be in the future."
