Republican Florida Senator Marco Rubio says Beyonce' and Jay-Z missed an opportunity while they were in Cuba to see the effects of political oppression.

Rubio, who is Cuban-American, says the couple's recent trip was "hypocritical" and he criticizes the U.S. government for giving them a license to go as a cultural mission.

U.S. citizens may not travel to Cuba just for tourism, but they can get licenses for academic, religious, journalistic or cultural reasons.
