President Trump welcomed survivors of the CCP virus to the White House today to share their unique stories of recovery after facing the worst. President Trump on Tuesday, thanked a group of survivors for gathering at the White House, following their recent battle with and recovery from the virus. Very different stories to tell. He called them all very brave, adding that for some, the sickness brought them to the edge of life. The president went around the table, inviting the guests to share their stories across the table.
Trump recognized former NFL football player, mark Campbell, a friend of Tom Brady’s, who he said, didn’t feel so powerful while sickened and he was hit hard.
“You weren’t so strong when you got hit by that what started off”. The president reiterated that progress is being made on a vaccine as well as therapeutic treatments and expressed hope for a cure.
The US will halt funding to the World Health Organization as it investigates its role in the pandemic. The US is by far the biggest contributor fronting around $500 million per year. China gives around 40 million. The world depends on the WHO to work with countries to ensure that accurate information about international health threats is shared in a timely manner and if it’s not, to independently tell the world the truth about what is happening, the WHO failed in this basic duty and must be held accountable.
Trump says the WHO ignored anything conflicting with the Chinese regime’s account that includes human to human transmission of the virus. The WHO knew about it in December but denied it until January. The silence of the WHO on the disappearance of scientific researchers and doctors and our new restrictions on the sharing of research into the origins of covid 19.
The president said, he’s glad he closed the border with China even though the WHO told him not to. He said if other countries had followed his lead, many more lives would have been saved.
