Japan To Review WHO Funding, Might Follow In Trump’s Foot steps
Interesting right?. Shinzo Abe of Japan put out a statement saying that he sees problems with the WHO and Japan will review its funding after the pandemic is over. BUT… look at how it was reported in some media:

Uhm… that’s a little misleading, right? It kinda seems like it says Shinzo Abe is defending the WHO from Trump – but here’s his complete statement from CNN:
Japan’s Prime Minister Shinzo Abe told media in a Friday press conference that the WHO has issues and Japan will review its financial contributions after the pandemic is over.
“We must support WHO firmly now. However, it is true that there are problems and issues. I think it Is necessary to look into it once the coronavirus outbreak has ceased,” Abe said.
Abe says the WHO takes a political stance and that Japan has been requesting for Taiwan to becomes a member for several years. China considers Taiwan a renegade province and objects to its inclusion as an equal by international organizations.
It is not an unmitigated support of Trump’s accusations against the WHO, but it DOES seem like he’s admitting they have problems. Kinda weird, huh?
And in case you were wondering, Japan has declared a nationwide emergency over the coronavirus. They think that the cases jumped after the cherry blossoms bloomed and people all went outside to have a look.
Will more governments come out against WHO?
