Haiti has had a history of destructive seismic activity, most recently the January 2010 Haitian earthquake that devastated the capital, Port-au-Prince. The United States donated over $2bn in aid, even through hampered transport links. Several days after the disaster Joe Biden stated that President Obama "does not view this as a humanitarian mission with a life cycle of a month...This is going to be a long slog.".
Of course, trying to be at his most controversial, Ghost, on the True Conservative Radio show, saw the sending of aid and support to the afflicted nation of Haiti as a waste of money, going as far as drawing comparisons between them and welfare moochers. Once a missionary had been stopped trying to smuggle Hatian children to America for 'a better life', he considered his anger justified.
