WASHINGTON, D.C. – Congressman James Comer released the following statement on President Trump’s decision to put a hold on further payments from the United States to the World Health Organization (WHO).

“American taxpayers should absolutely not subsidize an agency whose leadership worked with Communist China to conceal the dangers of COVID-19 from the world,” Congressman Comer said. “Until there is accountability from the WHO on this apparent cover-up and a full investigation into their relationship with the Chinese government, I fully support the President’s action to cut off their funding.”

Last week, Congressman Comer joined fellow members of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform in requesting documents from the WHO on their assistance with the Chinese government’s coronavirus propaganda efforts. Read the full letter here.
