Donald Trump Announces Hold on World Health Organization Funding

Donald Trump Announces Hold on World Health Organization Funding. By Charlie Sperling.

President Donald Trump announced Tuesday at the White House that he would put a hold on funding to the World Health Organization amid the coronavirus crisis.

“They were wrong about a lot of things,” Trump said.

The president noted that the World Health Organization receives more from the United States than any other country, and would require accounting for their failure to properly alarm the world about the coronavirus outbreak.

“We want to look into the World Health Organization because they really called it wrong,” Trump said. “They missed the call, they could have called it months earlier, they would have known, they should have known, and they probably did know.” …

Yep. Like the US CDC, they only had one job, and they blew it spectacularly, landing us in a world of pain.

Trump said the WHO frequently sided with China despite heavy criticism for their lack of transparency about the virus.

“They seem to be very China-centric,” he said.

As we noted in the Wentworth Report on 3 Feb:

China’s man runs the World Health Organization.

The WHO Director General is Tedros Adhanom of Ethiopia. From 2012 – 2016 he served as Minister of Foreign Affairs in the one party government that rules Ethiopia. This is the same party that borrowed billions from China to build a railway line, then struggles to pay it back. In Africa, Ethiopia is the second largest debtor nation to China — owing $13 billion. As Foreign Minister Adhanom praised China for African loans, looks like he was the man to line them up. We also note that the one-party ruling party of Ethiopia is called the Tigrayan People’s Liberation Front which was once a Marxist Lenninist far left group — labels it dropped after the Soviet Union collapsed.

Stop paying them.
