Chip Roy Unveils Bill To Defund The World Health Organization

  • “President Trump must stop his petty, counterproductive political games,” said Rep. Nita Lowey (D-NY), who was chairwoman of the House Appropriations Committee at the time.
  • “The coronavirus cannot just be defeated here in the United States, it has to be defeated in every conceivable location throughout the world.”
  • At the time, Roy quickly introduced legislation to slash WHO funding, but the House, then controlled by the Democrats, did not take any action on the bill.
