Amid the media firestorm about President Trump’s alleged vulgar comments about countries like Haiti being “shitholes,” Eric Bolling is pointing out a fact that hasn’t been given as much coverage.

“3 years ago and long before any Presidential declarations, @realDonaldTrump funded @RandPaul trip to Haiti to provide free eye surgeries. 4 years ago Trump funded Central American eye surgeries,” Bolling tweeted.
And Sen. Paul (R-KY) himself talked about Trump’s actions in a recent interview.
“I think it’s unfair then to sort of all of a sudden paint him, ‘Oh well, he’s a racist,’ when I know, for a fact, that 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 said.
“You can’t have an immigration compromise if everybody’s out there calling the president a racist,” the senator added. “They’re actually destroying the setting. And he’s a little bit of it, but both sides now are destroying the setting in which anything meaningful can happen on immigration.”
President Trump has denied making the remarks.
