WATCH: Rand Paul Reveals What Trump Did For Haiti As A Private Citizen, Delivers Blow To ‘Racist’ Narrative

On Sunday, Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) delivered a major blow to the media’s narrative that President Donald Trump’s supposed “s***hole” remark about Haiti proves that he is “racist.”

Paul appeared on NBC’s “Meet the Press” with host Chuck Todd where he revealed that Donald Trump, as a private citizen, was a major financial backer of medical mission trips to Haiti which resulted in life-changing surgeries for hundreds of Haitians.

Speaking about Trump’s alleged “s***hole” comment, Paul said, “You know, I don’t think the comments were constructive at all, but I also think that to be fair we shouldn’t draw conclusions that he didn’t intend.”

“I know personally about his feelings towards Haiti and toward Central America because when I was not a candidate for president and he wasn’t a candidate for president I went down there on a medical mission trip,” Paul continued. “I did about 200 cataract surgeries with a group of surgeons in Haiti and the same in Central America, and when we asked Donald J. Trump as a private citizen to support those trips, he was a large financial backer of both medical mission trips.”

“So I think it’s unfair to sort of draw conclusions from a remark that I think wasn’t constructive is the least we can say, and it’s unfair to all of a sudden paint him as ‘he’s a racist’ when I know for a fact he cares very deeply about the people in Haiti because he helped finance a trip where we were able to get vision back for 200 people in Haiti,” Paul concluded.
