"Someday there's going to be a statue of an American president in Cuba, and it's going to be Barack Obama. He's going to be the one who gets that first statue," DePaul University professor of law Alberto Coll said in a recent sit-down with Newsy.
President Obama's popularity in Cuba is pretty astonishing. A poll released last year found 80 percent of Cubans held a positive view of the president. Obama scored higher with Cubans than both Castro brothers.
Most, if not all, of that goodwill can probably be attributed to how long Obama's been promising to open relations with Cuba.
