Trump Used False Claims to Quit WHO

WASHINGTON (AP) ó President Donald Trump spread a number of false and misleading claims about the World Health Organization in announcing his decision to cut U.S. ties with the agency over the coronavirus epidemic.

Trump last week said he would halt funding and a decades-long U.S. relationship with WHO, accusing it of being controlled by China and misleading the world about the virus. He cited his May 18 letter to WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus that laid out allegations and demanded changes.

An AP Fact Check found numerous inaccuracies in that letter.

Trump accused WHO of ignoring scientific reports in December of the virus spreading in China that did not exist and assailed the group for criticism of a U.S. travel ban on China that it never lodged. He also overstated the level of knowledge about human transmission of the virus at the time.

Trumpís escalating actions, which have drawn heated responses from China, come as his administration faces criticism for his own botched response to the outbreak, including testing delays. The death toll for Americans has surpassed 100,000, the most in the world.

Here is a look at some of his claims and reality.

3. This is a perfect time for Biden to say

"I will reinstate funding to the WHO on January 21, 2021 when I'm inaugurated".

Then stand back and watch the tweet storm explode out of trump's little fingers as his brain explodes.
