ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) U.S. President Barack Obama arrived in Havana on Sunday, marking the start of an historic trip to Cuba where a Communist government that had vilified the United States for decades rolled out the red carpet. Umbrellas in tow, the Obamas weren't phased by some rain as they toured Old Havana. The three-day trip, the first by a U.S. president in 88 years, is the culmination of a diplomatic opening announced by Obama and Cuban President Raul Castro in December 2014, ending a Cold War-era estrangement that began when the Cuban revolution ousted a pro-American government in 1959.
