Trump is now accusing the World Health Org. of a super strange conspiracy against the US (VIDEO)
Just weeks after President Donald Trump halted funding to the World Health Organization, he accused the WHO of being a 'pipe organ for China.' He made the statement inside the Oval Office on Wednesday.
"We're by far the biggest contributor to the WHO. And, they mislead us. I don't know, they must have known more than they knew because they are after what other people knew who weren't even involved. Things they didn't know or didn't tell us. Right now they're literally a pipe organ for China. So we're looking and were seeing, and we're watching."
Trump argued that since the US makes more payments to the WHO than China does, the organization should be looking out for the interests of the United States. Despite this, he said “they seem to work for China, and they should have been in there early on. They should have known what was going on. And they should have been able to stop it."
Let's step back for a second. This is the World Health Organization we're talking about here, not just some random organization. They have been around since the end of World War II and were formed at the United Nations.
When Trump cut funding, even Bill Gates started speaking out about it:
"Halting funding for the World Health Organization during a world health crisis is as dangerous as it sounds. Their work is slowing the spread of COVID-19 and if that work is stopped no other organization can replace them. The world needs WHO now more than ever."
Other prominent Republicans have accused the WHO of being in bed with China. Rep. Doug Collins(R-GA) said last Friday that "The World Health Organization was a willing accomplice to the Chinese Communist Party's coverup scheme, playing a critical role in spreading their lies and misinformation."
