President Trump announced Friday that the U.S. is 'terminating' its relationship with the embattled World Health Organization (WHO) over its failure to enact reforms in the face of concerns over its handling of the coronavirus pandemic and its pro-China bias.
."The world is now suffering as a result of the misfeasance of the Chinese government," Trump said.Trump announced last month that the U.S. would freeze froze funding to the WHO, and threatened to make the freeze permanent if the organization did not enact "major substantive reforms." The U.S. had been the top contributor to the agency to the tune of approximately $450 million a year. China meanwhile pays approximately $50 million a year -- although Beijing had recently announced a $2 billion injection of funds.
The U.S. has raised concerns about WHO officials' praise of Chinese "transparency," its ignoring of warnings about the virus from Taiwan, and its repetition of Chinese claims that COVID-19 could not be spread from person-to-person. Trump has also pointed to opposition from WHO officials to his decision to place a travel ban on China in the initial days of the crisis.
POMPEO OFFICIALLY DECLARES HONG KONG 'NO LONGER AUTONOMOUS,' SLAMS CHINA INTERVENTION "Chinese officials ignored their reporting obligations to the World Health Organization and pressured the World Health Organization to mislead the world when the virus was first discovered by Chinese authorities," he said. "Countless lives have been taken and profound economic hardship has been inflicted across the globe."
Targeting the Chinese directly, Trump said he will issue a proclamation to secure university research and to "suspend the entry of certain foreign nationals from China who we have identified as a potential security risk." Read more: Fox News »
Donald Trump has proven, beyond reasonable doubt, that the United States of America is no longer viable as a 'Union'. Dumb. WHO colluded with China. Meanwhile. Trump idiot is quiet on the riots except for tweets. Get President Trump back on today at 5, Parino's voice is worse than nails on chalk board. Perfect. This ranks right up there with dismantling the pandemic team. TrumpMeltdown 100kDeadAmericans
That’s like abolishing the navy after Pearl Harbor. Chuck Schumer: 'President Trump's Rose Garden event just now was pathetic. It perfectly encapsulates his inability to lead when our nation needs it most. The only question is whether President Trump is afraid to lead or just doesn't know how.' It has become a Banana Republic.
China lied and continue to lie emboldened by WHO. China must be held in to account. The world must censor China. Believe China in your own peril. China is a virus to themselves and to the world. China is a threat to world peace. Right on👍 U.S. terminating relationship with Trump. Very, very soon. Believe me. It’ll be great, the best. After Trump, we will Make America Great Again.

Trump is more interested in deflecting criticism away from himself than he is in serving the interests of our Country. Wait WHO? A compete & utter moron in the middle of a pandemic. So who do we call for COVID19 vaccines; China & all the other nations realDonaldTrump continues to Pi*s off by his arrogance, failed economic & foreign policies. The world requires alliances and friends. Trump has NONE!
About time!!! WHO=Worthless Health Organization Screw Who, Chinas lab Dog is done! Too late Leader. Biden2020Landslide MikeEmanuelFox Now it's time for Dr. Fauci, a great friend of W.H.O., to retire and allow a less political member of the younger generation to assume status of USA's Viral Expert. realDonaldTrump again shows impeccable timing.Such a smart move in the middle of a Pandemic! Once again he has ceded world leadership to others,like when he abandoned S.Korea,or the Kurds,or let Russia and Iran dominate South America,and the Saudis get away with murder in Yemen.
Great news Trump 2020 Because this is what he should be focusing on right now. The country he is the head of is literally falling apart around him and he focuses on Twitter and WHO. We all KNEW he would leave this country in tatters. It is happening. The World needs an unbiased monitor of world flu and disease occurrences. W.H.O. has proven they are not up to the task. The money set aside can be put to better use. gop potus oann
