In Little Haiti Trump Ups the Heat On Clinton’s Haiti Heist
Donald Trump took the fight directly to Clinton over her theft of contributions to Haiti. He arrived in Little Haiti in Florida to directly attack his opponent and slam the gross corruption of her foundation.
According to Breitbart:
“Clinton was responsible for doing things a lot of the Haitian people are not happy with,” Trump stated, referencing Haiti’s earthquake. “Taxpayer dollars intended for Haiti and the earthquake victims went to a lot of the Clinton cronies.”
The Washington Post previously detailed the frustration from many Haitians with the Clintons:
The Clinton family’s charitable work in Haiti has been a mix of success, disappointment and controversy. As our Washington Post colleagues reported, some Clinton-backed projects didn’t come through, such as a $2 million housing expo for thousands of new housing units. The Government Accountability Office found poor planning and unsustainable outcomes for taxpayer-funded projects through USAID, such as a $170 million power plant and port for the Caracol Industrial Park, which the Clinton Foundation promoted.
Hillary Clinton’s younger brother had connections to a mining project in Haiti, raising suspicions among Haitians about the Clintons’ motives. Luxury hotel projects paid by the Clinton-Bush Haiti Fund promised construction jobs — but for Haitians, it represented another disconnect between Clinton-backed efforts and the realities of one of the poorest countries struggling to rebuild after one of the worst humanitarian disasters in the Western Hemisphere.
The Republican nominee said he came to “listen and learn” from the Haitian community, according to the Miami Herald.
“The fact that he came here is everything for us as Haitians,” stated Monique DieuJuste, who doesn’t identify with any political party, but plans to vote for Trump. “Clintons haven’t done anything for us.”
It’s interesting how Trump is willing to step into the middle of any controversy and take ownership of it to the detriment of his opponent. In this case, Mrs. Clinton continues to suffer the effects of having her truth brought to light by Mr. Trump since the media has refused to.
