As the Coronavirus continues to spread around the world, President Donald Trump has drawn a line in the sand, announcing that the U.S. will stop its funding for the World Health Organization (WHO) because that group’s assistance of the Chinese government to cover up the spread of the disease.
Florida Senator Marco Rubio (R), who was the first to call for a review of the funding for the WHO and to hold the group’s leadership accountable for its “mishandling” and cover-up of the Coronavirus outbreak, agrees with the withholding of funds.
Sen. Rubio says he supports funding the organization but only after an “independent” WHO is established.
“The Chinese Communist Party used the WHO to mislead the world,” Rubio said. “The organization’s leadership is either complicit or dangerously incompetent. I will work with the Trump Administration to ensure the WHO is independent and has not been compromised by the CCP before we continue our current funding.”
Rubio isn’t the only Floridian calling for heads to roll over at the WHO.
Back on February 11th, Florida Senator Rick Scott (R) penned a letter to the Director-General of the WHO asking, demanding that they conduct a unilateral “in-depth analysis” of the spreading “China virus,” but according to a letter Sen. Scott just wrote to the U.S. Congress where he asked them to “hold a hearing and investigate” the WHO because the organization failed or refused to conduct the investigation
“The mission of the WHO is to get public health information to the world so every country can make the best decisions to keep their citizens safe. When it comes to Coronavirus, the WHO failed,” stated Scott
