Port-au-Prince is about the size of Chicago. But it doesn’t have a sewer system. It’s one of the largest cities in the world without one.
That’s a big problem, but never more so than during a time of cholera… the disease is endemic — more than a half-million people have gotten sick and at least 7,050 have died.
The cumulative sewage of 3 million people flows through open ditches. It mixes with ubiquitous piles of garbage. Each night, an all-but-invisible army of workers called bayakou descend into man-sized holes with buckets to remove human waste from septic pits and latrines, then dump it into the canals that cut through the city.

A flashback news report from a liberal source. Taken in context, whatever Trump may have said was correct as applied to Haiti.
You mean, the Clinton Foundation hasn’t built them one??
I can remember the sewage in the open ditches in Mexico.
Just how much money does the world give the Haitians? Assuming it is a solid amount, what or who is preventing them from building a sewer system?
No sewer system, not even a sh!thole?
Maybe they should get off the lazy asses and fit something … there is no excuse for all this infrastructure to still be down, Dem efficiency as usual
A literal shithole. Imagine that.
Millions of Clinton Foundation dollars later, Haiti remains a shithole. Imagine that.
If Trump is going to be held accountable for his words, I’d like to know when the Clintons will be held accountable for their actions??
And here I thought the Clinton Foundation had fixed Haiti.
Yup- it’s a shithole.
No, but they know a little about chit..cause they are definitely full of it.
Port au prince. = $h!thole.
To: null and void
Yep, can’t even afford a hole.
“what or who is preventing them from building a sewer system?”
If the shit fits.
