Mike Pence put the World Health Organization on notice that the administration is going to hold them accountable for their inaccurate reports. The “Chinese propaganda” has been “basically unchecked.” Not only did they move “forward with false information,” they allowed China to hide information.
Vice President Pence gives official notice
Vice President Mike Pence appeared on Sean Hannity’s Fox show Wednesday for an update on the coronavirus crisis. One of the hottest topics of the day was the World Health Organization.
About halfway through the interview, Hannity pointed out, they’ve been putting out “Chinese propaganda” that spreads faster than the virus, “basically unchecked.” Pence put them on notice with a clear warning. The administration has a sharp eye on them.
“This is a president who believes in accountability, and the American tax payers provide tens of millions of dollars to the World Health Organization.” The administration’s not so sure that they’re getting what they pay for.
Propaganda and censorship not worth the price
The global health department’s latest inflammatory comment is an unfounded statement warning President Trump that “if you don’t want many more body bags you should refrain from politicizing it.”
On top of the propaganda, they allowed China to cover up the alarming spread of the disease and hide information which could have prevented 95 percent of the damage. The W.H.O. totally dropped the ball but never thought anyone would notice. Vice President Pence assures they aren’t going to get away with it.
The administration isn’t going to pull any funding yet, but they’re “going to ask the tough questions about how the World Health Organization could have been so wrong.”
WHO tried to ‘diminish’ the threat
As Pence explained, “literally at the time that President Trump stood up the White House coronavirus task force in January and suspended all travel from China, just days before that the World Health Organization was continuing to diminish the threat of the coronavirus and its impact in China.”
The White House vows to get to the bottom of it. “We’ll get to the answers of that, and we’ll create accountability just like the American people would want us to do.” That will come later though, so for now we’re just giving them notice we’ll soon be back to settle the score. After we get the virus under control.
The entire task force team is “getting up early, staying up late” to make sure that “the American people know… what every single person in this country can do to slow the spread.”
Spare no expense
The president has “directed to spare no expense to make sure that we have the broadest amount of testing available, new testing developed, and that most importantly our healthcare workers in America have the resources, the protective equipment, the ventilators to be able to provide the level of care to people that are struggling with the coronavirus.”
The policy is beginning to show real signs of working. As Pence noted, “It really is inspiring to see the way the American people have stepped up and put into practice the social distancing guidelines.”
Because of all the cooperation, “we’ve seen progress in California and Washington, where the numbers remain low and steady.” In the hard hit areas of New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut there is “evidence of the beginning of a stabilization.” Louisiana is starting to recover as well. The American people “know our future is in our hands.”
