President Trump has suspended funding to the WHO, for their role in “covering up the severity of the Covid-19 pandemic”.
Trump believes that the World Health Organization aided China in hiding information about the virus which allowed unnecessary delays by countries across the world in starting early enough to take preventive measures against what has now become a pandemic.
Trump froze all U.S. funding for World Health Organization accusing it of ‘accelerating the pandemic’ by opposing his partial ban on travel from China and ‘putting political correctness above lifesaving’
‘Today I’m instructing my administration to halt funding of the World Health Organization while a review is conducted to assess the World Health Organization’s role in severly mismanaging the spread of the coronavirus,’ Trump announced in the White House Rose Garden.
Trump said WHO’s ‘attack on travel restrictions put political correctness above life-saving measures.’
