    Donald Trump, the leading Republican candidate in the 2016 US presidential race, noted that the Cuban President didn’t show up at the airport to greet his American counterpart Barack Obama and called such behavior “disrespectful.”

    The real estate mogul first commented on the event on Twitter, mentioning that Raul Castro had previously arrived at Jose Marti International airport to greet Pope Francis "and others".

    Obama arrived in the Cuban capital of Havana on Monday in a historic visit and is due to meet with Castro to review progress made on the normalization of relations between the two countries. It is the first visit of a sitting US president to Cuba in 88 years.

    The US President and his family were greeted on the ground by Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Eduardo Rodriguez Parrilla, Cuban Ambassador to the United States Jose Cabanas and Josefina Vidal, the head of US affairs at Cuba's Foreign Ministry.
