Former US Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has announced that a fundraiser she promoted managed to gather around $100,000 ”to support groups doing critical work to protect kids and families at the border”, since Trump’s TV speech on Tuesday about the situation on the US-Mexican border.
Describing the president’s address as a “TV stunt”, Clinton urged her audience to “keep counteracting his lies about migrants and refugees with positive action”.
However, a large number of netizens took a dim view of Hillary’s statement, opting to give a piece of their mind to her instead.
How much of the money did you steal this time? #Haiti— Andrejs Eglitis (@falconnestorg) 9 января 2019 г.
The great thing is your posts are getting more and more unhinged as the days wear on.— PornOh2 (@Oh2Porn) 9 января 2019 г.
You can't accept the FACT that you were an unlikable, corrupt candidate who had to be thrown into vans by the FBI because you can't stand up for too long and you LOST the election.
Several people were quick to point out that merely a few years ago, Hillary herself apparently advocated doing the same thing she now criticises Trump for.
If what he says are lies, how come you were saying the exact same thing just a few years ago?— DaveFromColorado (@dave_pitsch) 9 января 2019 г.

Others questioned the sources of the former Democratic presidential nominee’s personal wealth, bringing forth allegations of embezzlement and corruption.

Haiti? Stop stealing people’s money in the guise of charity.— odoyle_rules (@r_thrift4) 9 января 2019 г.
Earlier, US President Donald Trump addressed the nation from the Oval Office, describing the situation at the United States’ southern border as a "humanitarian crisis, a crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul".
He also called to secure the funds necessary to build his long-promised wall along the border with Mexico, and blamed the Democrats for the current government shutdown.
