Trump threatens to reconsider its membership of WHO doesn’t reform in 30 days

Trump in his recent letter to WHO Director General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus outlined US’s grievances about the WHO’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic. He warned that, if WHO does not commit to major substantive reforms within the next 30 days, US would make its temporary freeze of funding to the WHO permanent and reconsider its membership.

I am hopeful other countries follow his lead and reevaluate their contributions to an organisation I believe does not have our best interest in mind.

They won't comply. The leaders don't care about the organizations funding only their own. My guess is they go through a charade of pretence and then in the make it look like the US was being unreasonable.

I can't understand why people don't see that both Trump and the WHO can screw up at the same time. It doesn't have to be one or the other. The WHO is actually corrupt. It's very obvious. Just because Trump says something, that doesn't make it false.

Tbh, WHO does need to be checked with it relationship to China. I mean they're planning to endorse traditional Chinese medicine as an actually alternative to medicine. If that doesn't scream China's influence. https://www.scientificamerican.com/article/the-world-health-organization-gives-the-nod-to-traditional-chinese-medicine-bad-idea/

Trump keeps trying to blame China for the United States inept response to the pandemic. I do think his supporters have and will continue to sop it up but I think and hope that most Americans and the rest of the world will see the poor leadership.

Yeah. Just do it. Don’t just freeze the funding, quit it altogether already. Who needs a WHO that takes all the money from the US but listens only to China. That would be unhealthy, metaphorically speaking.
