While taking questions in Argentina today, President Obama took a shot at Ted Cruz and his proposal to increase surveillance of American Muslims if elected president, comparing what Cruz wants to do to how Cuba treats its people.

Watch:

This would be the same Cuba that President Obama just rewarded with a state visit?

As we reported earlier, Cruz had a little trouble himself answering questions on his plan when he admitted to CBS’s Norah O’Donnell that he had no idea how many Muslims even lived in the U.S.
