Republican Rep. Chip Roy Suggests Bill Gates Is ‘Siding With the Communists in China’

Republican Congressman Chip Roy made the extraordinary claim on Thursday that billionaire Bill Gates was somehow siding with Chinese Communists by supporting the World Health Organization. The Texas representative made the claim on Fox & Friends.

“I think the President is right to be holding the World Health Organization accountable,” Roy said

“I love all the hand wringing I’m seeing from the Hollywood elites and the celebrity culture who are all upset about what’s going on with the World Health Organization,” he said.

“Notably, I’ve seen that Bill Gates is pledging another $150 million. OK. Good for you. It’s about time you guys want to fund organizations like this that have not been looking out for the interest of the United States that haven’t been acknowledging Taiwan. That haven’t been doing what they should be doing on the front line.”

“Let’s encourage the World Health Organization to step up and get it right,” Roy said.

“Stop siding with the Communists in China. Stop against the interests of  the United States. Do what’s right for the American people and do what is right for the world. The President is right to be holding the World Health Organization accountable.”

Though Rep. Roy’s statement was somewhat confused, it appears he was suggesting that Gates is donating money to an organization that doesn’t have America’s interests and heart and that he’s therefore supporting Communists in China.

Gates strongly condemned President Donald Trump’s move to cut funding for the WHO.
