President Barack Obama is finally addressing Jay-Z and Beyonce’s trip to Cuba for their fifth wedding anniversary.

The President sat down with Today Show’s Savannah Guthrie and answered questions on whether he or the White House gave the couple clearance to travel to Cuba. Obama side-stepped questions about Jay-Z’s song Open Letter where  Jigga rapped,”that “Obama said, ‘Chill you’re going to get me impeached’/You don’t need this s**t anyway, chill with me on the beach.”

But President Obama did make it clear that he had nothing to do with the trip.

“I wasn’t familiar that they were taking the trip,” Obama said during an interview on Wednesday. “My understanding is I think they went through a group that organizes these educational trips down to Cuba. You know, this is not something the White House was involved with. We’ve got better things to do.”

Before the President addressed the allegations it was revealed that the Treasury Department and not the White House authorized the Carters’ trip as an educational and cultural exchange.
