Outraged Democrats Prove Trump’s Point in Pulling WHO Funding

The World Health Organization (WHO) not only believed China’s lies about the coronavirus, they helped the communist country cover it up so it could spread throughout the world, infecting millions. Last Tuesday, President Trump, citing failures and a cozy relationship with China, suspended U.S. funding for the WHO until some serious reforms take place in the organization. Naturally, because Trump did it, Democrats are outraged and because they are Democrats, they don’t even realize that their outrage proves the President’s point.
The United States gives almost $1 billion to the WHO every year, accounting for 15% of its budget. China, by contrast, gives $86 million annually to the WHO, which is a quarter of one percent of the organization’s operating cost. For some reason, the WHO favors China, not the U.S.
Fox News broke the bad news for the communist sympathizers:
President Trump’s decision to suspend funding to the World Health Organization amid the coronavirus crisis touched off an international war of words overnight as Democratic lawmakers in Washington as well as international bodies like the European Union condemned the move.
The President announced Tuesday that the United States would immediately halt funding for the health organization, saying it had put “political correctness over lifesaving measures,” noting that the U.S. would undertake a 60-to-90 day investigation into why the “China-centric” WHO had caused “so much death” by “severely mismanaging and covering up” the coronavirus spread.
Most Republicans applauded this move from the President, but Democrats are in hysterics, which would mean something if they didn’t flip their wigs every time Trump says or does something.
“This decision is dangerous, illegal and will be swiftly challenged,” screeched Pelosi.
Illegal? The President has full authority in how, when and if to distribute these funds.
“We can only be successful in defeating this global pandemic through a coordinated international response with respect for science and data,” added Pelosi.
Stay with me on this one, Nancy, the WHO dropped the ball, disregarded science and data, and helped China spread this plague. The last two entities that are going to be successful in defeating this global pandemic are the WHO and the Chinese Communist Party.
Nancy doesn’t realize it, but she has proved Trump’s point in cutting off the WHO until they get their act together.
House Oversight Committee Chairwoman Carolyn Maloney, D-N.Y., and House Subcommittee on National Security Chairman Steven Lynch, D-Mass wrote an angry letter that further showed why Trump was right to temporarily defund the WHO.
“While we may agree that the WHO has shortcomings that must be corrected, your attack on the global health organization can easily be seen as a deliberate but transparent effort to deflect responsibility for your own failures onto others,” read the letter.
If we were playing a game of “Who said it, China or Democrats?” could anyone tell the difference? This is straight-up CCP propaganda coming from two members of the U.S. Congress and that’s as shameful as the WHO assisting in the coronavirus cover-up.
“While the WHO may have made mistakes in its response to this crisis, it was certainly not alone, and it defies logic to withhold support from the WHO at this pivotal moment—at the height of a global pandemic—when promoting the health of nations around the world is essential to protecting our own population and rebuilding our own economy,” wrote Maloney and Lynch.
Maloney and Lynch think it defies logic that Trump would stop funding a proven ineffectual organization but they are applying their own “liberal logic,” which says keep throwing money at something no matter how bad it is.
The bottom line is, that even in their manufactured outrage, Democrats are showing that President Trump is 100% right in cutting off the cash flow to the WHO.
