US PRESIDENT DONALD Trump announced last night that swathes of the United States could lift coronavirus shutdowns “very soon” and made peace with state governors after being accused of acting like a king. While defusing an extraordinary domestic row, Trump however opened a new front on the international stage when he announced a freeze in US funding to the World Health Organization because he said it had been biased to China.
According to Trump, the WHO prevented transparency over the Covid-19 outbreak when it appeared in China, costing other countries crucial time to prepare, delaying decisions to stop international travel. “Had the WHO done its job to get medical experts into China to objectively assess the situation on the ground and to call out China’s lack of transparency, the outbreak could have been contained at its source with very little death,” he said. “The WHO’s attack on travel restrictions put political correctness above life-saving measures.” “We have deep concerns whether America’s generosity has been put to the best use possible,” he said, adding that Washington would now “discuss what we do with all that money that goes to the WHO”.
In January, however, Trump had actually praised China for its “transparency” over the virus. In a tweet on 24 January, he said: “The United States greatly appreciates their efforts and transparency. It will all work out well.”

You couldnt make this stuff up, the man is as entertaining as hell
If you find idiots entertaining then I guess so.
This particular idiocy has already been posted.
The transparency this president operates with is what you condemn not the man himself.
I dare say if your savior of hope and change "Obama" was half as transparent he woulda went down as the biggest idiot in history instead of the most corrupt.

You wouldn't have to dare if you were informed. You probably believe his claim of "no controversies" too, huh? You probably think he did a stellar job with swine flu too.
