Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) told NBCs Meet the Press that charges of racism against President Donald J. Trump are unfounded in part because of the 45th president's large financial contribution to Dr. Paul's2015 Haiti medical mission trip.
I think its unfair to sort of paint him, oh well, hes a racist, when I know for a fact that he cares very deeply about the people of Haiti because he helped finance a trip where they would get vision back for 200 people in Haiti, Paul said.
In 2015, Rand Paul was part of a group of U.S. doctors who volunteered their time to go serve some of the worlds poorest individuals and assist in various medical procedures.
At the time Guardian published a detailed article on this trip.
People need to be encouraged its not much longer, said Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul, an ophthalmologist by training, without taking his eyes off Saint Fleur.
As many of Pauls competitors courted voters in Iowa and New Hampshire over the last week, Kentuckys fiery junior senator joined a team of eye surgeons on a four-day mission to Haiti, giving vision to nearly 200 who would not have been blind if they lived in the US. Here in the poorest nation in the western hemisphere, curable blindness from common ailments such as
If Jesus can give me back my vision, I will be happy, said Saint Fleur, who would soon have a cataract almost the size of a dime removed from his left eye. The aging man, who balances himself with a worn walking stick, said he wanted his vision back simply to see his family again.
Rand Paul helped Saint Fleur and nearly 200 more Haitians see, the Guardian article continues.
On Tuesday morning, the day after his surgery, Saint Fleur sat in a room crowded with patients quietly waiting for the bandages to come off. He was speechless for a few moments after the white gauze was peeled away. Then he began to smile.
I see! I see! he said, joy spreading across his face. With shaking hands, he began reaching out for nearby medical staff, hugging anyone he could and affectionately touching their faces.
I love you, he told a nurse. Yesterday I couldnt see!
Saint Fleur then spoke directly to Paul: If its for money, I could not do this. I have no money, he said through an interpreter. God sent you to me.
President Trump has fallen under harsh criticism this week, over allegedly referring to Haiti as a sh*thole country and wondering why America accepted its immigrants.
So does Max Waters...she’s donated thousands of $$$ to the Haitians.....oh wait, that was her haitian crack supplier.
I am so sick of this useless bovine scatology.
I do not care what Trump said.
I do not care what Trump didn’t say.
I do not care about Haiti.
I do not care about Haitians.
BUILD THE F***ING WALL!
Almost a miracle if you think about it. People who actually see the light again because of a Senator. That job usually entails keeping people in the dark!
Sometimes this world just sucks. The Clinton’s raped Haiti after the phony donations and cell phone scam and Trump is a racist for using a politically incorrect word even though he donated big money aiding Haitian people. When will karma prevail?
You wipe it with a cloth of course!
What has Schumer or Durbin PERSONALLY done about Haiti?
Rand Paul—You are da man!! It’s great to see some loyalty on occasion.
Disney and Comcast got another falsehood that serves their progressive agenda, and will gladly perpetuate it.
The MSM is the Country’s greatest threat.
“What has Schumer or Durbin PERSONALLY done about Haiti?”
Why they’re posing for pictures for the new dictionary. They are two types of “$hitholes.”
I’m glad to hear anything from Sen. Rand Paul right now, considering how he was battered by that Nut-Ball Socialist neighbor. From the description of the damages, Sen. Paul is very likely to never fully get over these injuries.
They were and remain potentially very serious.
Such a rare, stand-up guy. Decent. Honorable. Loyal. Not a Trump yes-man, nor should he be. God bless them both.
Really? They were permanent? :(
Crumbs from the table of capitalism. Mr. St. Fleur is still going to die some day, and still has to use a stick to walk. Did he cure that? Did he make him as fit as a spry 20-year-old? Huh? Huh? Huh?
Now jus a cotton pickin’ minit here. Let’s be fair. At least they didn’t call Haiti a sh!thole while they were busy making it even moreso.
Mia Love needs to apologize and beg for Trump’s forgiveness...
All this crap is related to building the wall - The Dems need to keep the doors open and are willing to sacrifice the 800K or so “dreamers” that they claim to care so much about in order to drag their feet and try to insure no deals are made. The illegals/lottery/chain migration account for numbers that make the “dreamers” insignificant except as talking points.
The Democrats aspire to bring the US up to the high standards they have in Haiti.
dems faked accusation, you can even find it in the NY Slimes if you look
