As Twitchy reported, during his coronavirus press briefing Tuesday, President Trump said the United States would “put a hold” on money sent to the World Health Organization, although he walked that back a bit and said the administration was going to look at doing it.
New York Times White House correspondent and MSNBC analyst Peter Baker says that Trump’s found a new villain to blame for the coronavirus pandemic.

The WHO that told us all in mid-January that China had assured them the coronavirus couldn’t be transmitted from human to human? Can we blame them for being part of the problem?
