President Trump Cuts off WHO

Fantastic. FAN-TASTIC. The World Health Organization is a front to redistribute money around the planet for lefty pet “health” projects and for some reason, they have been extremely deferential to China. The U.S. gives the WHO far more money than China does and it’s time to cut off the globalists from the American tax payer teat.

The U.S. will “undertake a 60-to-90 day investigation into why the ‘China-centric’ WHO had caused ‘so much death’ by ‘severely mismanaging and covering up’ the coronavirus’ spread, including by making the ‘disastrous’ decision to oppose travel restrictions on China.”

“We have deep concerns over whether America’s generosity has been put to the best use possible,” Trump said. “The WHO failed in this duty, and must be held accountable,” Trump continued.  At least one WHO official suspected human-to-human transfer of the virus early on but chose to parrot China’s propaganda.

“Right from the start, from the first notification we received on the 31st of December, given that this was a cluster of pneumonia — I’m a MERS specialist, so my background is in coronaviruses and influenza — so immediately thought, given that this is a respiratory pathogen, that of course there may be human-to-human transmission,” Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove said in a press briefing Monday.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo also joined in with criticism of the WHO. “[W]e need transparency, and we need the World Health Organization to do its job, to perform its primary function, which is to make sure that the world has accurate, timely, effective, real information about what’s going on in the global health space. And they didn’t get that done here.”

“They basically hid information from the public,” Peter Navarro, WH economic adviser told Fox News. “They failed to call this a pandemic long after others had rightfully done so. And there is blood on their hands. I think President Trump is absolutely correct to have a full investigation of how that happened and what China’s role might’ve been … because we cannot have a World Health Organization that’s going to fail us in a pandemic and that’s what happened.”

CNN wants you to know:

His decision to withdraw funding from the WHO follows a pattern of skepticism of world organizations that began well before the coronavirus pandemic. Trump has questioned US funding to the United Nations, withdrawn from global climate agreements and lambasted the World Trade Organization — claiming all were ripping off the United States.

LOL. CNN says that like it’s a bad thing. CNN also wants you to get your thoughts back in line and listen to Democrat Senator Chris Murphy who wants you to blame Trump and not China. “Right now, there is a very coordinated effort amongst the White House and their allies to try to find scapegoats for the fatal mistakes that the President made during the early stages of this virus,” he said. Murphy added: “It is just wildly ironic that the President and his allies are now criticizing China or the WHO for being soft on China when it was in fact the President who was the chief apologist for China during the early stages of this crisis.”

Is there any evidence that Trump was a “chief apologist?” He was working under the impression that China wasn’t LYING about their deadly virus. The WHO on the other hand, had an actual scientist employee specializing in respiratory viruses, raising alarm. They had Taiwan raising alarm which they ignored. There’s a difference between knowingly ignoring facts and operating under false assumptions like the U.S. government.  You get a real sense of what these resistance freaks priorities are which is to get Trump more than it is to blame the actual responsible party. It’s disgusting.

SCAPEGOATS!
