During an appearance on “Meet the Press” this weekend, Kentucky Senator Rand Paul exposed the truth behind President Donald Trump’s history with Haiti — and there’s not much Trump’s critics can say about Paul’s smoking gun proof.
Leftist critics suggested last week that Trump called Haitian people a derogatory term because he allegedly refered to the country as a “sh*thole” — so, rather than help lead the country the president has spent almost a full week answering questions about his “tough language.”
Paul served up the facts that Democrats were hoping would never get out. Trump isn’t a racist — and there’s proof. He spent thousands and thousands of dollars of his own money, in private, to help give vision back to over hundreds of people in Haiti post-earthquake.
This is before Trump was a politician. He gave the donation because he cared, not because he wanted to score political points.
“I think it is unfair to all of a sudden, paint him, ‘well, he’s a racist,’ when I know for a fact he cares very deeply about the people in Haiti because he helped to finance a trip, we were able to give vision back for 200 people in Haiti,” he said, according to the Washington Examiner.
Paul, an ophthalmologist, planned a medical mission trip to Haiti and Trump donated a large amount of money to help make that trip happen.
Speaking further about this trip while appearing on Fox News, Paul stated, “When I went to Haiti a few years ago, I went on a medical mission trip and we did cataract surgery for about 200 people who were largely blind before their surgery,” he said.
Take a look —
.@RandPaul: "I went to Haiti a few years ago, I went on a medical mission trip…I asked for donations before I went on the trip & one of those was to businessman @realdonaldtrump, who not only helped with the trip to Haiti but also helped with a previous trip that we took." pic.twitter.com/ewT11ufNTN

Would a person who has racist feeling towards the people of Haiti have funded a trip and surgeries for residents of that country? Of course not.
Did former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton donate thousands from her own checking account to help make surgeries happen for people in Haiti?
No, she would have used those donations towards her daughter’s wedding.
