To me, if Biden listens to aides like Juan Sebastian Gonzalez, others like him and Haitian Americans in his administration, the president has an opportunity to get Haiti right this time around. Gonzalez made it clear that the administration will no longer play the game of throwing its hat behind one candidate. He understands that when Hillary Clinton, as Secretary of State, imposed Michel Martelly on the Haitian people, that was one of the worst recent decisions the U.S. made regarding Haiti. Martelly’s inability to govern led to a degradation of civil society and created an untenable situation that culminated in the assassination on Jul. 7.
