Haley Defends Trump Withholding Money from WHO “They need to be investigated”

Appearing on Fox News with Sean Hannity, Nikki Haley backed Trump’s decision to withhold money from the World Health Organization.

“The President is right to say ‘I’m going to withhold money [from WHO] until I get answers.’ They owe us those answers.”

Per WashingtonExaminer Haley decried China’s involvement in several international organizations, including its recent inclusion in the United Nations Human Rights Council as the coronavirus pandemic, which originated in Wuhan, China, continues to tear through hospitals and economies around the world.

“the United States does fund 22% of the World Health Organization,” Haley said. “But this is even bigger than the World Health Organization, this is about China’s influence into these multilateral organizations.”

Haley decried China’s involvement in several international organizations, including its recent inclusion in the United Nations Human Rights Council as the coronavirus pandemic, which originated in Wuhan, China, continues to tear through hospitals and economies around the world.

“This is what China does,” she said. “They try and leverage and get influence. And what we’re seeing is the World Health Organization, once again, has fallen for it. And I can’t believe they’re going to go so far as lecture the president. I mean, if anything, we deserve to hold them accountable. We have the rights to answers. They need to be investigated.”

Haley noted that Taiwanese health officials warned the WHO of a human-to-human virus on Dec. 31 before accusing the organization of having a slow response to the pandemic as a result of its allegiance to China.

“Why did it take a whole month for the World Health Organization to respond? You want to know why that is? Because China has kept Taiwan from being a member of the World Health Organization,” she said.
