Controversial Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates and his wife Melinda Gates have bought an enormous oceanfront house near San Diego for $43 million. This makes it one of the largest deals in the Del Mar, California area.
If Only Gates Would Stick to Real Estate
Their new six-bedroom home makes up about 5,800 square feet. It has luxuries such as a 10-person Jacuzzi, a fire pit, a spacious ocean deck, and a swimming pool. The property is accompanied by two guest houses, a health spa, theater, as well as many other amenities.
Gate’s has other mansions in Washington and another in California.
Gates is not the only multi-billionaire buying up properties during the tumultuous coronavirus economic fallout. Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos just secured a $16 million apartment as his mega-mansion is being built in New York City.
Gates’ Strong Ties to WHO
His residential moves are not the only things the tech billionaire involves his time with. Bill Gates has a staggering net worth of over $100 billion, according to Forbes, and continues to ruffle feathers with his strong support of the World Health Organization (WHO).
WHO has been involved in many questionable things, and this organization is only adding to peoples’ distrust of it.
China and Gates on the Same Team
It was announced on Thursday by the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs that the country responsible for the coronavirus pandemic, China, will donate a staggering $30 million to the WHO.
China’s Foreign Ministry spokesperson Hua Chuying called the support of WHO akin to “supporting Multilateralism and Global Solidarity.”
When communist China, which is well-known for deceit and wrongdoings, is backing WHO, that in itself should raise eyebrows. China has already donated a previous $20 million in March.
China has decided to donate additional $30 million in cash to WHO to support its global fight against #COVID19, in particular strengthening developing countries' health systems. China already donated $20 million in cash to WHO on March 11.

President Trump announced earlier in April that the United States will no longer be the single largest donor to WHO. He said America would be cutting off funding to the organization due to its egregious misinformation spreading.
“The WHO’s reliance on China’s disclosures likely caused a twenty-fold increase in cases worldwide, and it may be much more than that,” Trump said April 14. “The WHO has not addressed a single one of these concerns nor provided a serious explanation that acknowledges its own mistakes, of which there are many.”
The W.H.O. really blew it. For some reason, funded largely by the United States, yet very China centric. We will be giving that a good look. Fortunately I rejected their advice on keeping our borders open to China early on. Why did they give us such a faulty recommendation?

President Trump announced that the U.S. would stop funding while the WHO goes through a 60-90 day investigation. He also accused the organization of putting “political correctness over lifesaving measures.”
Chief of WHO, Tedros Adhanom, threatened the president to “refrain from politicizing” the coronavirus pandemic “if you don’t want many more body bags.”
Gates Continues to Fight Trump
Gates has amped up his criticism of the president after his WHO funding announcement. When he isn’t buying up more multi-million dollar properties, Gates has been focusing the majority of his time advocating for shady vaccines and putting out public health responses.
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. The world needs @WHO now more than ever.

The Chinese government isn’t the only one dumping millions into WHO’s agenda. The Gates have also given abundant amounts of money in the name of “fighting against the virus.”
The WHO was provided with credible information in December 2019 that the virus could be spread from human to human, but this was ignored.
With his untrustworthy record, it would be nice if Bill Gates would just stick to real estate, but the chances of that are slim to none.
