Trump Administration To Exit World Health Organization After Months Of Its Deadly Malpractice

On Tuesday, the United States began the process of exiting the World Health Organization, according to Sen. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.). He stated on Twitter that President Trump had formally notified Congress that day of the action. Withdrawing from the organization will take a full year to enact, meaning the ultimate future of the relationship will be in the hands of the 2020 presidential election winner.

Trump cut U.S. funding for the organization this May. Following weeks of criticism of the body, Trump announced he was breaking off the relationship and “redirecting those funds to other worldwide and deserving urgent global public health needs.” American taxpayers have spent more than $3.5 billion funding the organization since just 2010.

A Pattern of Deception

In the three years since Chinese-backed Tedros Adhanom took control of the World Health Organization, his authoritarian connections have been a subject of concern. But once Covid-19 radiated out from Wuhan, this bias caused critical gaps that may have cost hundreds of thousands of lives.

As Tedros covered for his Chinese allies, critical information about the virus was delayed as the WHO continuously praised China and spread its falsehoods about the deadliness of the disease. Among other things, during just the coronavirus pandemic, WHO has:

In total, the better part of a month to prepare was lost, allowing a flux of international travelers from China to continue spreading the disease, so far leading to 133,000 dead Americans and hundreds of thousands of more killed throughout the world.

Events in the past 24 hours have not done anything to help that record. Tuesday, the WHO made the extraordinary admission that it actually learned about Covid-19 from the internet, not China, as both had claimed for months. Their officials praised the Chinese government’s handling of the Black Death outbreak in the nation’s northern territories.

Presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden today announced his support for rejoining the communist-kowtowing organization if elected.

Biden has yet to address how he will make sure U.S. taxpayer dollars don’t assist Chinese Communist leader’s Xi Jinping’s deadly use of the WHO if he wins.

President Trump has yet to make a statement about the formal exit, which will likely be announced in the coming days.
