Trump announced on Tuesday that the United States will withhold funding to the World Health Organization.
This is good news. The WHO failed in their response to the Coronavirus on multiple levels.
They deserve to suffer the consequences.
FOX News reports:
Trump announces US will halt funding to World Health Organization over coronavirus response
President Trump announced at the White House coronavirus news briefing in the Rose Garden on Tuesday that the United States will immediately halt all funding for the World Health Organization (WHO), saying it had put “political correctness over lifesaving measures.”
Also at the briefing, the president said plans to ease the national economic shutdown were being finalized, and that he would be “authorizing governors to reopen their states to reopen as they see fit.” At the same time, Trump made clear that he was not going to put “any pressure” on governors to reopen…
“We have deep concerns over whether America’s generosity has been put to the best use possible,” Trump said, accusing the WHO of failing to adequately keep the international community apprised of the threat of the coronavirus.
“The WHO failed in this duty, and must be held accountable,” Trump went on. He added that the WHO had ignored “credible information” in December 2019 that the virus could be transmitted from human to human.

President Trump explains why he is halting funding to the @WHO:
-They failed to obtain & share accurate information
-Failed to investigate credible reports of human-to-human transmission and parroted CCP Propaganda instead
-They were silent on the disappearance of Whistleblowers pic.twitter.com/MToSDQbcRn

This is the right thing to do.
We can't have a World Health Organization that fails us in a pandemic—but that's what happened.
Don't let Dems & the media tell you otherwise: The WHO did more to aid China's cover-up than protect the world from COVID-19.@realDonaldTrump is right to halt U.S. taxpayer funding. https://t.co/UQLcqrA103

My friend @replouiegohmert says it best:
“We don’t have to pay organizations to lie to us. They’ll probably do it for free!”

There’s NO reason we should be paying WHO $115,766,922!
Thank you, President Trump, for halting funding to WHO.
