Friday, President Trump accused the World Health Organization (WHO) of helping the Chinese communist regime to conceal the number of its citizens that have been infected by its latest virus.
“I do believe they knew,” the president said at Friday’s briefing of the coronavirus task force, suggesting that the WHO was aware that President Xi & Company was not truthful about the scope of COVID-19 infections. “But they didn’t want to tell the world. And will get to the bottom of it.”
The President made it very clear that the UN’s public health organization would is a primary target in the coming days. “We are going to talk about the WHO next week in great detail. I didn’t want to do it today, Good Friday. I didn’t want to do it before Easter, and also didn’t want to do it before we have all the facts,” he said.
Friday’s comments came during a week in which President Trump and many others, including Shayne and I repeatedly blame the WHO for improperly handling the coronavirus pandemic.
Tuesday, he said that the WHO is “very biased toward China.” We gave it $900-M in its current frame, and China gave it a paltry $86-M, and with that small sum it bought the orgizanations head, a very corrupt controversial Ethiopian politician known for vast criminal indiscretions in Ethiopia.
In this column I have called for the cutting off of all money to the UN and to shutter its NY HQ.
President Trump said he wants to put a hold on US funding to the WHO, although when or how he intends to do so remains unclear, as its funding is appropriated by Congress. The United States contributed $893-M to the WHO for its current two-year funding period, while China’s latest contribution was $86-M.
“We are paying them more than 10 times more than China,” the President said. “And they are very, very China-centric.”
The WHO did not endorse did not endorse the President Trump restriction on travel from China to the US, which he implemented on 31 January, and 4 days prior, a WHO guidance advised against “unnecessary restrictions of international traffic.” All while over 430-K Chinese flew directly into the US from Europe and the Mainland. Bringing with them the deadly China Virus.
Instead of acting in the best interest of global health, the WHO has served as a propaganda arm for the Chinese communist government.
Earlier this week, President Trump charged that the WHO “minimized the threat very strongly.” As the WHO declared in January that “there is no evidence of human to human transmission of the virus.” That was an out and out deadly lie, that has cause pain and suffering worldwide.
The head of the World Health Organization, in charge of making life or death decisions on a grand scale, is accused of covering up cholera epidemics, supporting a terrorist organization and inflating his resume to claim he conquered malaria and HIV.
Tedros Adhanom Ghegreyesus’ campaign to rewrite his chequered past has many of us asking The Big Q: Is he is the right fit to lead the global agency through the coronavirus pandemic?
The Big Q: No!
“Tedros is the 2nd-to-last person who should be heading the world World Health Organization at this time,” foreign affairs expert Gordon Chang said. “The last person is China’s President Xi Jinping.”
