Trump Hints At Cutting WHO Funding Over Coronavirus Handling
President Donald Trump suggested today that he might consider cutting funding for the World Health Organization over its handling of the coronavirus crisis and alleged role in helping China downplay the severity.
“The W.H.O. really blew it. For some reason, funded largely by the United States, yet very China centric. We will be giving that a good look. Fortunately I rejected their advice on keeping our borders open to China early on. Why did they give us such a faulty recommendation?” he tweeted.

This was posted by the WHO on January 14th. The WHO owes an explanation to the world of why they took China’s word for it. So much suffering has been caused by the mishandling of information and lack of accountability by the Chinese. https://t.co/SooEnEPsjJ

The director of the W.H.O was largely backed by the Chinese Communist Government when elected.
That should tell it all.

Defund them… use that money to fund the CDC instead.

When an organization that has members in it that are dictators and communists, my guess is that it is not a very good origination.

Don’t look, defund! Withdraw!
Start a new organization, the International Health Association. Or whatever name you like. Let’s just do it.
