President Trump wrote a devastating letter Monday to the director of the World Health Organization, saying that his administration conducted an investigation that proved that the international health group failed in its responsibility to the world during the initial stages of the coronavirus pandemic. The letter warned that the U.S. funding suspension will become permanent if the World Health Organization does not make "substantive" improvements within one month.
His move was met by stinging criticism from Democrats and various foreign buttinskis who leveled the usual charges of racism (Not sure how it applies here. But hey, it's the only arrow in their quiver) and Trump shoot from the hip decision making. The president has recently said he may restore funding, but only at a 90% reduced level commensurate with the Chinese level of funding.
The president said in April that the U.S. would stop funding the organization on a temporary basis. He said that his administration would launch a 60-to-90 day review into why the "China-centric" WHO had caused "so much death" by "severely mismanaging and covering up" the coronavirus' spread, including by making the "disastrous" decision to oppose travel restrictions on China.
"It is clear the repeated missteps by you and your organization in responding to the pandemic have been extremely costly for the world,"
he wrote to Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. "The only way forward for the World Health Organization is if it can actually demonstrate independence from China."
The WHO "consistently ignored credible reports of the virus" in December 2019. By the first of the year, it was clear that the coronavirus was a "major health concern." Taiwanese authorities even told officials at WHO about human-to-human transmission, but that data was not shared with the international community, the United States, international medical groups, the media, or any other institution or group who could have stopped the spread of the disease and saved countless lives.
"By the time you finally declared the virus a pandemic on March 11, 2020, it had killed more than 4,000 people and infected more than 100,000 people in at least 114 countries,"
said the letter.
There are those, in and out of the intelligence community, who believe WHO was complicit in a Chinese operation to compromise and damage the American economy by spreading the virus as quickly as possible. To those who balk at such a scenario a bit of history is in order: A regime that imposed a brutal and draconian one child policy on a nation of over a billion, a policy that resulted in the murder of millions of infant females, would not hesitate to sacrifice thousands or millions of its own to gain an international economic advantage.
The WHO surrendered to demands Monday from a majority of its member nations to launch an independent investigation into how it administered the international response to the pandemic that has killed over 300,000 people and leveled the global economy.
If the World Health Organization is true to recent form it will come up with sham results and blame President Trump for reasons that have nothing to do with public health. Which will be a very good reason to keep the funding suspension in place into the foreseeable future.
