    While some social media users didn't seem to think highly of Trump Jr's remarks, others went on to say some rather unpleasant things about the World Health Organization in relation to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

    US President Donald Trump's son, Donald Trump Jr., has apparently managed to cause quite a stir on social media with his recent tweets related to the World Health Organization.

    On 1 April, Trump Jr. retweeted an allegation made by an unverified Twitter account claiming that Japanese Deputy Prime Minister Taro Aso said that WHO should be renamed “Chinese Health Organization”, with the US president's son stating "I'm with him!" in his own post.

    ​Trump Jr. also went on to share a 14 January tweet by WHO which said that “preliminary investigations conducted by the Chinese authorities have found no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission” of the new coronavirus.

    ​"This didn’t age well. I think the world has to reassess their outlook on anything they are told by China in the future", Trump's son argued. "If the CCP would have been honest from day one rather than try to save face so many lives could have been saved".

    Quite a few social media users, however, did not seem particularly pleased with either of his tweets and proceeded to give Trump Jr. a piece of their mind.

    However, there also seemed to be no shortage of those who appeared to share the US president's son attitude towards WHO.
