President Trump just made his move and it is about time we started cracking down on corrupt international institutions.
We fund them, primarily, China barely kicks in but China gets to the officials in their home countries and there the money flows.
China has literally corrupted the World Health Organization. With deadly consequences.
Look, China tried to cover up the pandemic.
They lied about how contagious it was. They lied about the deaths and the numbers sick.
The WHO backed them up and covered for them. When countries started to ban travel from China the WHO ripped them.
The WHO fell asleep on the job and “willingly took China’s actions and words at face value,” Trump said.
Trump said the “WHO pushed China’s misinformation about the virus and fought us when we tried to ban travel from China.”
“The WHO has not addressed a single one of these concerns,” Trump said as he held them to account.
Trump says “there was credible” information in December to suspect human-to-human transmission before ripping the WHO for not responding or disclosing appropriately.
PRESIDENT TRUMP: “Today I am instructing my administration to halt funding of the World Health Organization while a review is conducted…”
“American taxpayers provide between $400 million & $500 million per year to the WHO. In contrast, China contributes roughly $40 million.” pic.twitter.com/OQMeJO6A8n
