Jay-Z and Beyonce recently traveled to Cuba for their anniversary vacation. No one really knew why they chose Cuba since Cuba is considered an "enemy country" and it is so controversial, but that is probably exactly why they did! Anyway, after their trip they received a lot of critcism for spending money in Cuba on things like hotels, restaraunts, cigars, etc. since we have an embargo and travel ban with them. Basically, "ordinary citizens" are not allowed to travel trade or in any way stimulate Cuba's economy. So why did Jay-Z and Beyonce choose to travel there?! This is what everyone has been asking! Jay-Z made a song about it. Listen here. The White House responded to Jay's song..
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney brushed off the question with sarcasm: "I guess nothing rhymes with Treasury... because Treasury offers and gives licenses for travel, as you know, and the White House has nothing to do with it."
"I am absolutely saying that the White house from the President on down had nothing to do with anybody's travel to Cuba that is something that Treasury handles.," he continued.
And if Carney didn't make himself clear before, he shut down the conversation by denying White House approval straight forward.
"It's a song, Donovan. The President did not communicate with Jay-Z over this trip."
