As a result of the indoctrination and deceptive propaganda of the U.S. media: CNN, Fox News, etc ...

- many U.S. Citizens and Haitians from the diaspora in United States think that the united States is such a big deal ...

They think they are all that.
"Doum plen pa fe bwi. Se doum vid ki fe bwi" - Haitian proverb.

The truth is ...

"The United States contributed $2.32 per American to Haiti over the last three years for which we have data (about 80 cents a year).

That's much less than other countries do, even though Haiti is in our hemisphere and has historic close ties to the U.S. For example, Canada contributed $12.13 per person to Haiti over three years, and Norway sent $8.44.
Other countries that contribute more, per capita, to Haiti than the U.S. are Luxembourg, Sweden, Ireland, France, Switzerland, Spain and Belgium.

True, there are more Americans, so collectively our aid amounts to more than one-quarter of the pot in Haiti,...

Given the per capita sums, we have no right to be bragging about our generosity in Haiti."
