People just reminded Chelsea Clinton about what her parents did to Haiti

Stories continue to develop surrounding a closed-door meeting about immigration at the oval office on Thursday. This time Chelsea Clinton is involved.
Following Thursday’s bipartisan meeting at the oval office, Chelsea Clinton posted a tweet critical of Trump’s apparent position on immigration. But, several Twitter users were quick to point out something that she apparently forgot: the Clinton family helped to undermine Haiti, one of the countries specifically referred to in Thursday’s meeting, by directing donations for the Haiti earthquake relief away from the Haitian government.
Chelsea Clinton Tweets at Trump
Chelsea Clinton was one of many individuals who, in combination with the media, criticized President Trump after he reportedly said, “Why are we having all these people from s***hole countries come here?”
Chelsea attempted to answer the President’s alleged question as follows:

But, evidently, Chelsea is not aware of the saying “People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones.”
Twitter users were quick to remind Clinton of her own families past with regard to Haiti.

Of course, these users are referring to the events surrounding the Clinton family’s role in the 2010 Haiti Earthquake relief effort.
Clintons’ Role in Haiti Earthquake Relief Efforts
In January 2010, a tragic earthquake struck Haiti killing hundreds of thousands of people. At the time, Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State and Bill Clinton was the United Nations Special Envoy to Haiti. Given his relationship with Haiti, Bill was appointed co-chairman of the Interim Haiti Recovery Commission.
Billions of dollars were donated to Haiti for recovery. But it was reported that only a fraction of the money donated went directly to the Haitian government and local organizations.
So where did the money go? The same report found that much of the money “… went to United Nations agencies, international aid groups, private contractors and donor countries’ own civilian and military agencies.”
Many Haitians, understandably, weren’t happy.
“A lot of Haitians are not big fans of the Clintons, that’s for sure,” said Kim Ives, editor of Haiti Liberte newspaper. He told the BBC, “The fact the Clintons kind of took over things after the earthquake and did a pretty poor job of it translates to why the Haitians have a pretty dim view of them.”
Trump denied making the controversial comment, clarifying on Twitter that while Haiti is “a poor and troubled” country, he has “a wonderful relationship” with Haitians.
Never said anything derogatory about Haitians other than Haiti is, obviously, a very poor and troubled country. Never said “take them out.” Made up by Dems. I have a wonderful relationship with Haitians. Probably should record future meetings – unfortunately, no trust!

Trump moved on to more positive topics, proclaiming Martin Luther King Jr. Day as a federal holiday and encouraging “all Americans to observe this day with appropriate civic, community, and service activities in honor of Dr. King’s life and legacy.”
Those on the left, like Chelsea and the rest of the Clinton family, continue to focus on their divisive agenda — undermining and attacking President Trump at every turn. It’s clear they don’t have the interests of the American people at heart — only their own.
