Many in the mainstream media are feigning over President Donald Trump allegedly saying he didn’t want to give immigration protections to people from “s**thole” counties such as Haiti and Africa.
Former first daughter Chelsea Clinton chimed in on the situation, and it did not end well for her as many social media users reminded her about the Clinton Foundation scandal that involved Haiti nearly a decade ago.
In a tweet Thursday evening, Clinton took a shot at Trump over his alleged comments:
Mr. President, immigrants from El Salvador, Haiti and the 54 countries in Africa likely helped build your buildings. They’ve certainly helped build our country. cc @POTUS https://t.co/hv1QYRoRy3
— Chelsea Clinton (@ChelseaClinton) January 11, 2018
While the White House has denied Trump ever made the claim, many users on social media blasted Clinton for chiming in on an issue that made her look like a complete hypocrite:
@HillaryClinton @BillClinton if you are that concerned about Haiti give them the money you owe them! #CorruptToTheCore

You’re one to talk about being kind to Haiti. Ask your parents how much money they made through the corrupt Clinton Foundation at the expense of the Haitian people.

Uhh… not sure you’re the person best qualified to talk about Haiti, Chelsea. *If* Haiti is a shithole country, it’s because your parents helped dig that hole. https://t.co/weMEjpPdfC

Yep, ask the people of Haiti what they think of your parents Chelsea. Not sure I would be opening my mouth on this or anything else if I were you.

Didn’t they pay for your wedding too

But if people are going to be upset about anything involving Haiti, it should be the Clinton Foundation scandal following the devastating earthquake nearly a decade ago.
As a matter of fact, no two individuals have enjoyed more power than the Clintons following the catastrophic Jan. 12, 2010 earthquake, where credible reports suggest the Clinton family exploited the opportunity to pocket tens of millions of dollars.
As reported by the New York Post, the Clintons encouraged other nations to invest millions of dollars in the donations to the Clinton Foundation to help with recovery efforts in Haiti, but $20 million went “off the books” without any questions being asked.
The Post reports:
“The little-known Haiti Development Fund, an LLC incorporated in Delaware in August 2010, was created by the Clinton Foundation with an initial endowment of $20 million from shady Canadian mining mogul Frank Giustra and Mexican billionaire Carlos Slim.
But The Post found only one project that it funded with a fraction of the start-up cash.”
The Post reported that several top Haiti officials were likely involved in the scandal, with other reports suggesting former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton used some of the money to pay for Chelsea Clinton’s wedding.
Perhaps Clinton should keep quiet next time she tries to weigh in on something she has no business talking about.
