Roberts Skeptical of Obama's Cuba Move

Kansas Senator Pat Roberts would like to expand contact with Cuba but not under the terms outlined by President Obama. Roberts says he'd like to start selling agricultural products to Cuba because that would benefit Kansas farmers. But Roberts says he has concerns about normalizing relations with Cuba under their current government.

"What the president is proposing is total normalization, and in the mean time I do not see any change in the communist government with regards to individual freedoms," says Roberts.

Roberts believes starting agricultural trade with countries like Cuba and North Korea could make them more dependent on U.S. products and have a long-term national security benefit for the U.S.
