The mainstream media lost its mind on Thursday following a report that President Donald Trump said he didn’t want to give immigration protections to people from “s**thole” counties such as Haiti.
The White House has denied Trump ever made the claim, but that’s not anywhere close to what the Clinton family said or did the the people of Haiti following the devastating earthquake nearly a decade ago.
In order to pile on Trump, Washington Post White House bureau chief Philip Rucker tweeted a piece he wrote in 2010 about how “special” Haiti was to the Clintons.
Bill & Hillary honeymooned in Haiti. “We just became fascinated with the country,” WJC told me in 2010, right after earthquake. They decorated homes with Haitian art and traveled there again and again. https://t.co/cIbN1Yvhwt

It’s true that the Clintons do have a “special” relationship with the country, but it happens to be a massive scandal involving the Clinton Foundation that allegedly kept millions of dollars in donations that were supposed to help rebuild the community.
No two individuals enjoyed more power and influence than the Clintons following the deadly Jan. 12, 2010 earthquake, and the Clinton family exploited the opportunity to line their own pockets.
It has been alleged that the Clintons encouraged other nations to invest millions of dollars into the Clinton Foundation, where they promised to use the funds to help rebuild Haiti.
The funds were hardly disbursed to rebuild the community, and even The New York Post questioned how $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.
The Fund was supposed to supply desperately needed seed money to Haitian entrepreneurs after an earthquake devastated the country in January 2010.
But The Post found only one project that it funded with a fraction of the start-up cash.”
Here’s what Haiti looks like today, which is after the Clintons spent years helping the “special” place:

While Trump has denied making the remarks, one certainly would agree that if anyone deserves criticism for the way they treated the people of Haiti, it is the Clintons, not Trump.
