President Donald Trump announced that the United States will place a freeze on its funding to the World Health Organization, citing the UN entity’s questionable pro-China track record and inability to properly warn the global public of the dangers of the Chinese coronavirus.
Trump made the announcement during his Tuesday press conference.

“They called it wrong… They missed the call. They could’ve called it months earlier, they should’ve known. We’re going to put a hold on money spent to the WHO.”
The United States is currently the greatest single contributor to the annual budget of the World Health Organization by far, having paid hundreds of millions of dollars into the agency’s multibillion dollar budget in previous years.
The Director of the WHO had forcefully spoken out against the President’s common-sense travel ban on China, taking a sharply political tone as nations across the world implemented similar measures as the severity of the disease became apparent.
The World Health Organization has taken claims from the authoritarian Chinese government at face value, largely peddling the Chinese Communist Party’s narrative on the dangers posed by the virus to the world and the dubious casualty counts China has released for the epidemic.
Arizona Senator Martha McSally called for the Director of the WHO to resign last week, citing the Ethiopian bureaucrat’s questionable connections to revolutionary Communist parties.
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti: It’s Time to Cancel “Everything”
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti sternly instructed residents of his city to cease all outgoing activities of everyday life, citing the county’s dismal coronavirus prospects, which he states are worse than what the nation’s second-largest city faced in March.
“It’s time to hunker down. It’s time to cancel everything. If it isn’t essential, don’t do it.”
Los Angeles County officials enacted a full coronavirus shutdown for three weeks last week, strictly limiting permissible activities and placing the county in a lockdown similar to those utilized across the country at the onset of the coronavirus pandemic in March. Cases, hospitalizations and deaths are spiking, and county officials are concerned the city’s medical system is unprepared to accommodate a surge in coronavirus cases similar to that seen in New York earlier in the year.
Black Lives Matter protestors have staged nightly protests outside of Garcetti’s house demanding special privileges for individuals charged with felonies. However, the Mayor’s emergency order exempts protest gatherings from restrictions, placing them in the same category as congregating for religious services.
Garcetti was seen congregating in a group of chanting BLM demonstrators earlier in the year. Angelenos can only hope that their neighbors will execute greater discretion in the interest of public health and saving lives than their mayor has.
