Scott Voices Support for Trump’s WHO Letter


This week, President Donald Trump directed a letter to the World Health Organization’s Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, arguing that he would permanently freeze U.S. funding to the WHO. As well, Trump commented that the U.S. would reconsider its membership if the global health organization “does not commit to major substantive improvements” in the next 30 days.

President Trump shared the letter on Twitter for his followers to read, and Florida Senator Rick Scott (R) commented on the letter, showing his support and arguing that the WHO has not acted in the best interest in the United States.

Arguing that President Trump “is taking the right steps to protect American taxpayers,” the former Florida Governor added that “the WHO failed to do its job – to be a leader in global health. Instead they chose to be a puppet for Communist China.” 

Aside from the WHO, the Florida lawmaker has also criticized the Chinese Communist party, joining South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham (R) and other lawmakers in introducing the COVID-19 Accountability Act, which authorizes President Trump to impose sanctions against China and the Chinese Communist government if they do not cooperate and provide an account of the events that led up to the COVID-19 outbreak. This is one of many legislations that have been introduced with the goal of holding the communist government accountable.

With the state of Florida announcing that it would be reopening its economy in a safe and effective way, Florida Governor DeSantis (R) took to social media to update followers on how the sunshine state is doing on its first week back to work.

“On May 18,” informed the Governor, “the 64 original Phase I Florida counties reported roughly 23,000 test results with 402 new cases for a positivity rate of 1.75%.” In turn, he concluded that “the positivity rate for 5/18 for all counties including Miami was 1.9%.”
