President Trump said the U.S. will stop funding to the World Health Organization while his administration reviews its role in “mismanaging” the coronavirus. He said the U.S. contributes up to $400 million while superpowers like China, where the outbreak began, contribute closer to $40 million. “The United States has a duty to insist on full accountability,” Mr. Trump said. He cited the WHO’s lack of pushback to Beijing’s foggy reporting on the virus in the early going, saying it cost the rest of the world valuable time. He also blasted the WHO’s opposition to bans on travel from China, accusing it of putting “political correctness above life-saving measures.” “Countless more lives would have been saved. Instead, look at the rest of the world,” he said, citing the rampant spread of the virus in Europe. He said U.S. funding wasn’t put to good use and the WHO failed to vet and share information in a timely fashion.
President Trump is exactly right for doing this. If you scroll down about 12 articles, you’ll see one on how we pay 10 times what China does to the WHO, and the WHO is basically a propaganda organ for China. So, major kudos to President Trump for saying enough is enough, and putting a freeze on U.S. taxpayer funding to the WHO, until it shows it actually cares about WORLD health; not China’s image.
