Trump Just Redirected WHO Funding to Other Organizations, Like Red Cross & Samaritan's Purse

President Trump thought about placing a hold on American funds heading to the World Health Organization. The group’s incompetence in handling the COVID-19 pandemic called for such a measure from POTUS.

Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is now considering making a move against WHO, similar to what Trump did on Saturday.

Check this out, via New York Post:

The White House budget office has told federal agencies to redirect World Health Organization funds to groups that do similar work, indicating a 60-day suspension of WHO funding ordered by President Trump will be permanent.

The funds will flow instead to outfits such as the Red Cross and Samaritan’s Purse after Trump said Tuesday the WHO needed reform after failing to vet coronavirus data from China, contributing to a pandemic that infected more than 650,000 US residents.

The US provided roughly 10 percent of the WHO’s $4.8 billion annual budget. Most US contributions were “voluntary.” Annual US dues were just $58 million, with the next installment not expected until September.

Many people have accused WHO of running interference for the Chinese communist regime.

In fact, WHO even admitted to ignoring an early warning from Taiwan so as to not anger China.

The head of WHO, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, recently went after Trump.
