Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean alleged on social media this week that the Clinton Foundation should take over relief efforts of Puerto Rico from President Donald Trump — and social media erupted with laughter.

What did he say?

On Thursday, Dean wrote on Twitter:

Dean was responding to a tweet from Trump, who earlier said that "we cannot keep FEMA, the Military & the First Responders, who have been amazing (under the most difficult circumstances) in P.R. forever!"

What is the Clinton Foundation's history of relief effort?

After a powerful earthquake struck Haiti in 2010, then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and her foundation, the Clinton Foundation, help lead U.S. relief efforts in the impoverished nation. The foundation raised millions to build schools and even a hospital. However, many of the plans took years to unfold while others still haven't come to fruition, nearly eight years after the quake. The Clinton Foundation has been a huge target of criticism over their Haiti relief efforts since.

That's why Dean's statement garnered more than 8,000 responses, most of which mocked him for his idea.
