(National Sentinel)Â Caught: Last week President Donald J. Trump caused a stir in the media, Hollywood and among Democrats when he allegedly called Haiti a “sh*thole country” during immigration reform negotiations with lawmakers.
The comment drew a rebuke from the Clintons — Bill, Hillary, and Chelsea, the latter of whom was then chastised via Twitter by actor James Woods.
“Mr. President, immigrants from El Salvador, Haiti and the 54 countries in Africa likely helped build your buildings. Theyâ€™ve certainly helped build our country. cc @POTUS,” she tweeted.

In response, Woods accused the Clintons of using Clinton Foundation funds on daughter Chelsea’s $3 million wedding.
“Tell your dad, the bagman, to give the dough back to Haiti that you all pocketed. Then maybe we can discuss this other malarkey youâ€™re trying to peddle,” he said.

On Saturday, the former president tweeted out a denial that any “funds” were used to pay for his daughter’s and son-in-law’s wedding.
“No Clinton Foundation fundsâ€”dedicated to Haiti or otherwiseâ€”were used to pay for Chelseaâ€™s wedding. Itâ€™s not only untrue, itâ€™s a personal insult to me, to Hillary, and to Chelsea and Marc,” Bill Clinton tweeted, along with a Washington Post ‘fact-checking’ article defending his claim.

However, an email released byÂ Wikileaks from foundation official Doug Band to long-time Clinton associate John Podesta in 2012 provides clear evidence to the contrary.
“Bill Clinton claims that no Clinton Foundation ‘funds’ were used to pay for Chelsea Clinton’s wedding. However, the leaked email from then top Bill Clinton aide Doug Band doesn’t say ‘funds’ it says ‘resources,'”Â WikileaksÂ tweeted.

Here’s a graphic of the email tweeted by Wikileaks:
“The investigation into her getting paid for campaigning, using foundation resources for her wedding and life for a decade, taxes on money from her parents,” the memo said.
“I hope that you will speak to her and end this…Once we go down this road…” he added.
The former president’s tweet spurred another one from Woods, who excoriated him for it.
“The balls on this guy! You looted Haiti like a peg-legged pirate. You, your crooked wife, and your cheesy slush fund ‘foundation’ worked in concert to turn it into the sh*thole it has become,” said Woods.
