U.S. to Haiti Give me my money back
As per John Kirby, the State Department spokesman, the United States had informed Haiti about the decision on July 1, 2016 that Washington does not have any plan to fund for the upcoming two more electoral rounds of presidential and legislative elections scheduled in 2016 and 2017. However, Kirby has mentioned that this suspension should not be construed as a "reduction in US support for the development of Haiti."
However, the total of $33 million that came from the United States had always been held in a trust fund managed by the United Nations Development Program. Out of that, a total $8 million balance remained in the fund, of which the contribution of the U.S government was $2 million. In last July, the U.S President Obama had demanded to return that money given in 2015.
