ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump told the Palm Beach Republican Party Lincoln Day fundraising dinner on Sunday that U.S. President Barack Obama should not have stayed in Havana after President Raul Castro was not seen at the airport to greet Obama in Havana. "There was nobody there to greet him," Trump said. " Obama should have turned the plane around and left. He should have turned it around. He should have said, 'Bye Bye!'" 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.
