(ThePatriotSource.Com)- During a Tuesday press briefing, President Donald Trump announced that he is making the unprecedented decision to halt funding to the World Health Organizations over its cooperation with communist china. The organization has faced intense criticism in recent weeks, with politicians and journalists accusing the international group of helping China cover up the severity of the outbreak.
“Today I’m instructing my administration to stop funding of the WHO while a review is conducted to assess the WHO’s role in severely mismanaging and covering up the spread of the Coronavirus,” President Trump said in the speech.

The World Health Organization has come under fire specifically because it trusted the information coming out of China. While the communist Chinese government did manage to start containing the virus, thousands of people had already left the country and started spreading the disease globally before that happened. This took place at a time when the Chinese government downplayed the severity of the disease and didn’t disclose evidence that it could be transmitted between humans.
Experts at the WHO chose to believe China, and have even praised China’s handling of the virus. The organization continued repeating talking points form the Chinese Communist Party and even chose not to declare a public health emergency.
On January 22, following an internal meeting with doctors and experts representing the group, the WHO chose not to declare the virus an emergency based on advice from China. That proved to be disastrous as it resulted in many governments choosing not to close the borders and to continue allowing international travel.
In a statement, the WHO even said they appreciate the “commitment from top leadership, and the transparency they have demonstrated.” This proved to be entirely inaccurate.
The president’s decision, therefore, may not come as a surprise. During the press conference, the president claimed the WHO “failed in its basic duty and must be held accountable.” He also blamed the organization for promoting “disinformation” from China about the virus following the initial outbreak in Wuhan city.
Trump isn’t the only one calling for drastic measures to be taken to hold people accountable, either. While he focuses on investigating the WHO and its conduct, Senator Marsha Blackburn is calling on China to cancel $1 trillion of American debt.
Communist China has lied to the world about COVID-19 since day one and is now responsible for over 100,000 deaths.

It looks like after this pandemic is over, China and the World Health Organization are going to have a lot of questions to answer!
