DNC on Trump Halting WHO Funding

In response to Trump halting funding to the World Health Organization, DNC Deputy War Room Director Daniel Wessel released the following statement:

“In the middle of a global pandemic, Trump wants to stop funding the preeminent organization in charge of combating global pandemics. Trump is willing to put global health further at risk to try to deflect blame from his own failures. But the American people know the truth: It was Trump who ignored warnings for months while he praised China’s ‘transparency.’ It is Trump who cut CDC staff in China who could have shared information about the pandemic. It is Trump’s incompetence that continues to make this crisis worse than it had to be.”
