Eugenist Bill Gates is furious with U.S. President Donald Trump for cutting $500 million in funding to the World Health Organization (WHO).
In a tweet on Tuesday, the Microsoft co-founder slammed Trump's decision to cut WHO funding, saying "Halting funding for the World Health Organization during a world health crisis is as dangerous as it sounds. Their work is slowing the spread of Covid-19 and if that work is stopped no other organization can replace them."
Trump announced Tuesday he was halting $500 million in funding after criticizing The WHO's handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
Trump said the WHO failed investigate early signs of the virus' ability to spread from one human to another and failed to call out China for its lack of transparency.
Bill and his wife Melinda Gates pledged $100 million to develop a coronavirus vaccine. Gates stepped down from the Microsoft board to focus his efforts on developing the vaccine.
Of that pledge, $20 million went to the Atlanta-based CDC and the WHO.
In an interview with CNN, Melinda Gates said COVID-19 is going to "be horrible in the developing world." She added there will be "bodies in the streets of Africa" if the vaccine isn't distributed globally.
