American taxpayers send $400-500 million to the World Health Organization each year. China, with its 1.4 billion people, contributes about one-tenth of that amount.

The U.S. foots the bill, and here is what it receives in return: A WHO response to the Coronavirus outbreak that has been filled with one misstep and cover-up after another.

The WHO repeatedly parroted the Chinese government’s claims that the virus was not spreading between humans, despite dire warnings from doctors and health officials. When Taiwan contacted the WHO in December after seeing reports of human-to-human transmission, the WHO cowered to China and kept it from the public.

In addition to covering for the Chinese Communist Party, the WHO went out of its way to attack U.S. officials working to contain the virus. WHO leaders voiced strong opposition to travel restrictions from China and other countries, despite applauding travel restrictions within China itself. That led to further spread of the virus globally.

On February 24, President Trump requested $2.5 billion from Congress in emergency funds to fight the virus. That same day, the WHO insisted Coronavirus was not a pandemic—and chillingly praised China’s government for getting it under control.

In a global health crisis, telling the truth is a matter of life and death. In this basic duty, the WHO failed. Until these mistakes are acknowledged and fixed, President Trump has halted U.S. funding for the organization. “Maybe WHO will reform, and maybe they won’t,” President Trump said. “But we’ll be able to see.”
