US gives 10 times the amount of money to WHO than China

As coronavirus continues to cripple almost every country on earth, questions are being raised over the relationship between the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) and the top brass at the World Health Organization (WHO). Earlier this week, President Trump accused the specialized United Nations agency of acting too slowly on the escalating crisis, and deemed it “very China-centric.” He affirmed in both a tweet and later at a press briefing on Tuesday that his administration is “going to look into” the money U.S. taxpayers give to WHO – and potentially freeze it – given that Americans are the largest donors. So exactly how much is China forking out to have attained such an apparent influence? Well, nowhere near the United States. “In short, the total contributions of China versus the U.S. is $86 million versus $893 million,” David Maxwell, a senior fellow at the Foundation for Defense of Democracies (FDD), told Fox News. “The U.S. contributes nearly 10 times the amount China does.” Here is how it works. WHO operates on a two-year budget, and invoices members with two annual payments. It receives its money – usually totaling around $4.5 billion per year – through two streams. The first is referred to as “assessed” or mandatory contributions, which is considered core funding from its member states, and are based upon expected amounts scaled by population and income. These make up just under 20 percent of the total budget. The second stream is “voluntary,” provided by member states, private individuals and organizations, and makes up the bulk of WHO’s revenue. “Nations are assessed membership fees based on their gross domestic product and population size,” Dennis Santiago, a global risk and financial analyst surmised. “Nations and foundations can also make additional voluntary contributions to the general fund and for special designated projects, including outbreak and crisis response.” The United States pays the highest assessment fee to the WHO. The March 2020 WHO’s financials indicates that the United States’ current year assessment is $57,883,460. This is almost twice China’s 2020 assessment of $28,719,905 to the organization’s annual budget, the second-largest assessment in WHO’s budget. Based on WHO’s financial reports as of March 2020, China committed to an assessment of $28,719,905 to the organization’s annual budget. The current year amount is presently outstanding. China appears to be up to date in its payments; there are no amounts in arrears from prior years on WHO’s report. The U.S. has a balance of an additional $41,284,915 from prior years that have not been remitted, for an outstanding U.S. total funding assessment of $99,168,375. This amount is around one-third of the total $257,470,000 WHO is awaiting as of the end of March 2020. The U.S. and China have the two most substantial contribution assessments to WHO in 2020, followed by Japan and Germany.

How crazy is this?!?   American taxpayers, whether they like it or not, pay almost a BILLION DOLLARS PER YEAR of their hard-earned taxes to this corrupt, agenda-driven, pro-China  UN-type health organization, that does nothing for us, and yet basically covers for all of China’s health atrocities.  And, yet, China only pays a tenth of what Americans shell out to this worthless organization!  This story should infuriate every clear-thinking American, regardless of party affiliation.  And, after how the WHO has handled this whole Wuhan virus crisis, we need to cut off ALL funding to them until they get rid of the current leadership and show they are no longer a proxy for China’s propaganda.  For more, click on the text above.
