President Donald Trump’s decision to defund the World Health Organization (WHO) while accusing the international agency of failing to warn the United States about the pandemic blew up his face this week after a new bombshell report proves otherwise.
During a press conference/campaign rally last week, Trump controversially announced he would be stripping funding from the World Health Organization. Trump also tried to scapegoat the WHO for his own reckless response by blaming them for not warning the United States about the virus.
World leaders have universally condemned the move, and some nations have stepped up to provide increased funding to make up for the losses. Even China is taking advantage of the abdication of international responsibility by getting more involved with the organization.
But a new report just derailed Trump’s desperate effort to scapegoat the WHO because it turns out more than a dozen Americans working for the agency actually warned Trump about the virus as early as last year.
According to The Washington Post:
More than a dozen U.S. researchers, physicians and public health experts, many of them from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, were working full time at the Geneva headquarters of the World Health Organization as the novel coronavirus emerged late last year and transmitted real-time information about its discovery and spread in China to the Trump Administration, according to U.S. and international officials.
The presence of so many U.S. officials undercuts President Trump’s assertion that the WHO’s failure to communicate the extent of the threat, born of a desire to protect China, is largely responsible for the rapid spread of the virus in the United States.
So, Trump knew about the threat of the virus long before he ever called it a “hoax,” and he lied about the WHO failing to warn us about the coronavirus.
Trump lied to the American people and is purposely hurting the WHO all to cover up for his own incompetence. The WHO warned him and he chose not to listen. And now almost 800,000 people are infected and over 42,000 are dead.
