Power couple Jay-Z and Beyonce‘s controversial wedding anniversary trip to Cuba earlier this year has resulted in a new bill in their name, introduced by congressional Republicans.
If passed, the bill would limit funds to the Department of Treasury to approve “travel-related or other transactions incident to non-academic educational exchanges.”
Rep. Ander Crenshaw of Florida used Jay and Beyonce’s vacation trip as an example of how loopholes could be made for travel to Cuba.
“I think that if we’re going to say that we have this policy in place that relates to travel in Cuba, that it ought to be enforced, and that becomes a grey area where they’re probably not really following the guidelines.”
Hov addressed backlash from the trip on “Open Letter” off his new album Magna Carta Holy Grail, rapping, “I’m in Cuba, I love Cubans/This communist talk is so confusing.”
