The World Health Organization has been lambasted for botching its response to coronavirus from the very start. Just the other day, WHO admitted to ignoring a warning from Taiwan so as to not rile up the Chinese.

Now, President Trump is taking action.

From Daily Wire:

President Donald Trump announced during the White House Coronavirus Task Force press briefing on Tuesday that the administration was looking at freezing funding to the World Health Organization (WHO) over its handling of the coronavirus outbreak.

More from The Hill:

The president said the WHO seemed to be “very biased towards China” and accused the organization of disagreeing with his travel restriction on flights coming in from China. He suggested the organization was blind to the extent of the outbreak in Wuhan, the capital of China’s Hubei province, where the virus originated.

The WHO said in early February that widespread travel bans that interfere with international travel and trade were not necessary to prevent the spread of COVID-19, days after the Trump administration announced it would restrict travel coming into the U.S. from China. It did not take particular issue with the president’s travel restriction.
