Representative Mike Collins of Georgia pointed out that former President Donald Trump may have been right when he called Haiti a “sh*thole” as the nation descends into chaos.

The country has been plagued by gang violence and political instability. The situation has led to widespread chaos and insecurity.

One of the most alarming developments has been the emergence of violent gangs which have been terrorizing the population and forcing the Prime Minister to remain in exile. Ariel Henry has since resigned.

The situation in Haiti has become so dire that the United Nations has authorized the deployment of a multinational security force to help restore order. US troops meanwhile, have evacuated Americans from the U.S. Embassy while additional forces were brought in to secure the diplomatic compound in Port-au-Prince.

“Some might call it a sh*thole,” Collins remarked on X.

Trump Got A Lot Of Heat For His Comments About Haiti

Trump, the presumptive Republican nominee for President, referred to Haiti as a “shithole” in comments made during a meeting in 2018.

According to a Democrat aide quoted by NBC News at the time, Trump asked a group of bipartisan Senators why America would want immigrants from “all these shithole countries.”

The leftist media had a collective aneurysm over the comments. The United Nations, which has turned a blind eye to Haiti descending into chaos, derided Trump and said his remarks were “shocking and shameful” and, naturally, “racist.”

Elitist celebrities also denounced Trump and began a “Haiti is already great” campaign. Late-night talk show host Conan O’Brien was at the forefront of the obvious virtue signaling.

Will they recycle those shirts and hats now that Haiti has indeed descended into fiery chaos? Will they visit the country to show how great it is?

Collins Jabs Hillary Clinton

Mike Collins (R-GA) also took a jab at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton over the situation in Haiti. But, he has a novel solution for the problem.

“Imagine it,” he wrote. “It’s 2025, Donald Trump buries the hatchet with Hillary Clinton by nominating her to be the ambassador to Haiti.”

Collins added the hashtag ‘#LetHerCook.’

The Clinton Foundation’s Role

The Clinton Foundation has long been the target of Republicans who want the group investigated over the amount of money they took in during the Haitian earthquake in 2010.

That natural disaster devastated the country. But the Clinton Foundation was tasked with restoring and rebuilding.

Emails uncovered during an RNC FOIA request showed Hillary Clinton’s State Department aides giving special business consideration to companies labeled ‘Friends of Bill (Clinton)’ after the massive earthquake.

Even ABC News at the time conceded that the “correspondence offers a glimpse into the first stages of a $10 billion Haiti recovery effort” and “appear to show a State Department process that at times prioritized — and, some argue, benefited — people with close ties to the Clintons.”

The Guardian reported in 2020 that ten years after the devastating earthquake, the Clinton Foundation effort had obviously resulted in complete failure.

Those failures in Haiti included an industrial park that “failed to deliver the economic transformation the Clintons promised” and a port that was “quietly abandoned” despite “tens of millions of dollars” being thrown at it.

Author Antony Loewenstein wrote that the result of those failures left many Haitians living “in a state of despair and daily desperation.”

And now – Haitian ‘cannibal gangs’.

Was Trump right that the Clintons had guided Haiti into becoming a “s***hole”?

Videos and images on social media seem to confirm. Port-au-Prince has deteriorated into a war-torn city on the edge of collapse.

The situation has led to mass displacement of civilians and a deteriorating security and humanitarian situation. Additionally, the government has struggled to maintain order, and there are concerns that the country is on the brink of collapse.
