Obama Had No Say in Jay-Z Cuba Trip

White House press secretary Jay Carney said Thursday that, in contrast to a lyric in a new rap by Jay-Z, neither the White House nor President Obama cleared his trip to Cuba.

Carney said such matters are handled by the Treasury Department.

“I guess nothing rhymes with treasury,” Carney joked. “I am absolutely saying that the White House, from the president on down, had nothing to do with anybody’s travel to Cuba.”

Pressed further, Carney said: “It’s a song. … The president did not communicate with Jay-Z over this trip.”
