Old Clip Resurfaces Of Biden Saying “It Wouldn’t Matter A Whole Lot” If Haiti Sunk Into The Sea

  • A 30-year-old clip Joe Biden saying “it wouldn’t matter” if Haiti sunk has resurfaced as his administration faces a backlash for its handling of Haitian migrants.
  • In 1994, Senator Biden made the remarks during an interview with PBS after being asked if Bill Clinton would invade Haiti following the 1991 military coup against Jean-Bertrand Aristide.
  • Biden responded: “If Haiti just quietly sunk into the Caribbean or rose up 300 feet, it wouldn’t matter a whole lot in terms of our interest.”

“A three-decade-old clip of US president Joe Biden saying “it would not matter” if Haiti sunk has resurfaced as his administration faces a backlash for its handling of the influx of Haitian migrants.

The remarks were made by Mr Biden in 1994 during an interview with PBS when he was the senator for Delaware.

Mr Biden was asked if then president Bill Clinton would invade Haiti following the 1991 military coup against democratically-elected president Jean-Bertrand Aristide.

He responded: “If Haiti, a god awful thing to say, if Haiti just quietly sunk into the Caribbean or rose up 300 feet, it wouldn’t matter a whole lot in terms of our interest.”

This video has been around for years but it was widely shared this week after thousands of Haitian migrants encamped in the town of Del Rio near the US-Mexico border were forcefully sent back to their homeland…”
