U.S. Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., slammed President Obama over the decision to re-establish diplomatic ties with Cuba, saying the move will do nothing to further democracy and freedom in the third-world country.

“It’s absurd and it’s part of a long record of coddling dictators and tyrants that this administration has established,” Rubio said Wednesday in an appearance on Fox News.

Rubio, whose parents were forced to flee Cuba during Fidel Castro’s rise to power, said Obama’s foreign policy is “at a minimum, naive, and perhaps even, truly, truly counterproductive to the future of democracy in the region.”

And he ripped Obama in his negotiations with other countries.

“At a minimum, I would say this: Barack Obama is the worst negotiator we’ve had as president since at least Jimmy Carter, and maybe in the modern history of this country.”
