Day 1182

1/ Trump cutoff U.S. funding to the World Health Organization in response to the agency’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic. “We have not been treated properly,” Trump said, deflecting blame for his dismissal of the virus as a threat to Americans and the U.S. economy. The hold will remain for up to 90 days while the Trump administration conducts a funding review, accusing the WHO of “severely mismanaging and covering up” the crisis. Trump said the U.S. had “a duty to insist on full accountability.” Trump also said that “if we cannot trust them,” then the U.S. will be “forced to find other ways to work with other nations to achieve public health goals.” The U.S. is the largest donor to the WHO, and contributes between $400 million and $500 million a year to the organization, which has an annual budget of around $6 billion.

WTF is right. Can’t we at least make him sit in the corner for a while, for a ‘Time Out,’ for not playing nice with others?

It certainly makes this look like a ‘bribe,’ Trump trying to buy votes. King Trump, tossing baubles to the peasants.
