Former president Bill Clinton lashed out on his Twitter account Saturday refuting reports that claim Clinton Foundation donations paid for Chelsea Clinton’s wedding.
On Thursday afternoon President Donald Trump asked a group of pro-amnesty senators why the US should welcome migrants from “sh*tholes” like Haiti, Central America or African nations.
Both Hillary and Chelsea Clinton decided this was a good time to lecture Trump on Haiti.
Social media users bombarded the Clinton’s with tweets reminding them they left the Haitians high and dry after the devastating earthquake. The suffering Haitians never received relief from Clinton Foundation donations.
Bill Clinton wasn’t happy about the media firestorm over the Clinton Foundation!
Bill Clinton tweeted, “No Clinton Foundation funds—dedicated to Haiti or otherwise—were used to pay for Chelsea’s wedding. It’s not only untrue, it’s a personal insult to me, to Hillary, and to Chelsea and Marc.”
Attached to Bill Clinton’s tweet is a Washington Post ‘fact checker’ titled, “Did The Clinton Foundation Pay For Chelsea’s Wedding?”
