Trump suspended U.S. contributions to the WHO on April 14, accusing it of promoting China's "disinformation" about the coronavirus outbreak and saying his administration would launch a review of the organization. Washington would pay about 10% of its former level despite no formal decision.

Globe-wide problems require globe-wide cooperation. US scientists need to work for their colleagues around the world to come up with best ways to deal with this virus and reduce the likelihood of something similar in future.

WHO knows what Trump will do next. His history of flip-flopping and 'intentionally misinforming' have made him the least trustworthy president in US history.

correction above: US scientists need to work WITH their colleagues

Fox News, citing a draft letter, reported late on Friday that Trump was poised to restore partial funding to the WHO, matching China's assessed contribution.

Fox News should rename itself to the "Trump Propaganda Network" hell their old slogan was "Fox News, Fair and Balanced" but they had to stop because, well...it aint!

Trump is play politics with the WHO, and he will use this during his upcoming campaign to point to his "leadership" and holding people accountable for causing the US so much suffering and death!

They should withhold all funding until Taiwan is accepted as a member (as Taiwan).

-2 ( +5 / -7 )

This is one of the reasons Trump is so bad for the world, not just the US. We need a global response to this, and pretty much any other US President, regardless of party, would be taking an active role in leading and coordinating one right now.

Trump though isn’t even taking an active role in leading and coordinating the 50 states, let alone contributing to a global response. Instead he is deliberately undermining that response with BS like this. The WHO has problems, yes, but it is also doing absolutely vital work right now. All Trump is doing is setting fire to that work without proposing anything to replace it.

He’s not just screwing America’s ability to get through this, but that of the rest of the world too.

Well, after all, corona wasn't entirely China's fault was it? Mostly it was Obama's!

Playing politics with this pandemic from the very beginning is what led to the catastrophic suffering in this world, beginning with Xi, Tedros, and trump. We don't need trump to be grandstanding now with this statement. The orange flip flop will do whatever to feed his ego and his re-election. China will now fill the vacuum that trump left, and his statement will not change anything since the U.S. under trump is no longer a reliable partner or leader. You burned your bridges dumbo, thanks a lot.

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Saturday his administration was considering numerous proposals about the World Health Organization, including one in which Washington would pay about 10% of its former level.

Paying 10% is only one option being considered by the Trump administration. Paying 0% is another option.

If the WHO chooses to work for China's benefit, to the detriment of the rest of the world, then China should be the major contributor.

-12 ( +0 / -12 )

This is one of the reasons Trump is so bad for the world, not just the US. We need a global response to this,

The globe is not unified and the WHO or at least its current President who’s cuddling up to China and lying for them isn’t the person to lead the organization.

and pretty much any other US President, regardless of party, would be taking an active role in leading and coordinating one right now.

But we don’t need to, we have no reason, duty or even an obligation to fund an organization that is undermining us or the world.

Trump though isn’t even taking an active role in leading and coordinating the 50 states, let alone contributing to a global response.

He can, has been doing that, but it’s the governors who make the final decision and because so many Democrat governors are keeping people from working, you are seeing a slow simmer growing across the entire nation.

Instead he is deliberately undermining that response with BS like this. The WHO has problems, yes, but it is also doing absolutely vital work right now. All Trump is doing is setting fire to that work without proposing anything to replace it.

They are doing vital work, but it’s not in our best interest to work with any organization or at least, we have the right to hold back funding if an organization like WHO is in the pocket of an adversary that unleashed a virus that has killed so many people and caused misery and damage beyond repair. I’d fault him for not taking aggressive action against the Chinese, but seeing how the WHO will be more careful now, they need the funding more than we need them, so I don’t know what’s happening behind the scenes, but I’m pretty sure, they got an earful and are now walking a very thin and tight line.

He’s not just screwing America’s ability to get through this, but that of the rest of the world too

What? He’s not screwing up the US, people want to work, he supports them, the rest of the world however should worry about themselves.

Trump is bad news for the world. He has abdicated US world leadership role and relinquish it to China on a silver platter. He didn't even make China work for it. Thank God he will be gone by January 2021.

dbsaiya - Playing politics with this pandemic from the very beginning is what led to the catastrophic suffering in this world, beginning with Xi, Tedros, and trump. 

China released a deadly virus upon the world. The WHO did an extremely poor job of fact-finding this virus, and the release of this virus, from Wuhan, China. Asian, and European, nations were affected by China's virus. And you chose to blame Trump? Simply un-believable.

China didn't "release" anything. Using that verb implies they did it on purpose.

Please explain what they did so poorly, and tell us what they should have actually done (but please remember that the WHO is not a governmental body and has no power of authority over any country).

But we don’t need to, we have no reason, duty or even an obligation to fund an organization that is undermining us or the world.

It isn’t undermining you or the world.

He can, has been doing that, 

Even you can’t believe that.

The WHO is a weak organization that requires voluntary cooperation of member states, including China, which it really needed early on when the virus was solely in China. If you want one that is strong enough to stand up to China, you need to create one. Trump isn’t suggesting that, nor does he in a million years want one. He is just using the WHO as a convenient scapegoat and if the vital work it is doing, which protects America as much as it protects everyone else, is destroyed and not replaced then that is worth it because: hey look, you are concentrating all your rage on the WHO rather than the idiot in the White House whose ineptitude has allowed the US to become a cautionary tale. That is all he, or the Federal government he now controls, cares about. Not how to protect Americans, not how the country or world can get out of this. Just how to distract everyone. Its sick.

arrestpaul - Please note China did not "release" the virus on the world as if you're implying some conspiracy theory. My point in case you missed it was that playing politcis is what got us into this crisis in the first place. Xi downplaying and suppressing information from getting out and Tedros not being more forceful because of the economic benefits Ethiopia was recieving from China. Tedros should have shut down all lunar new year travel when he had the chance but deferred to Xi. Trump? Same thing. He played politics by ignoring or being willfully ignorant of all the intel he was receiving because he didn't like the numbers and when it hit the fan he decided he could capitalize on it, crowned himself as a wartime president. Being a wartime president means that the buck stops at the Oval office but this clown won't take the responsibility of the catastrophe that has occurred on his watch. His press briefings are a joke and an insult to our intelligence, and reeks of politics and self serving interests.

Based on more CNN staunch reporting? Hmm...

China didn't "release" anything.

Yes, they did, it didn’t come from Uzbekistan or Kenya or even Poland.

Using that verb implies they did it on purpose.

Given China’s lack of transparency, lies, intellectual property theft, currency manipulation, human rights abuse, White washing of history, minority oppression etc, it would be hard to say they didn’t.

Please explain what they did so poorly,

Where have you been these last 3 months and I wouldn’t even talk or take a history run on the CCP.

and tell us what they should have actually done (but please remember that the WHO is not a governmental body and has no power of authority over any country).

Don't listen to Fox News and its twisted takes. China didn't 'release' the virus, you have zero proof of that. It did originate there, as they have admitted. Let's make it clear that Trump should be blamed for lack of action and acting like an idiot in not assessing the danger of a pandemic he didn't see coming because he's too stupid. The worst president, ever.

Jan. 22 Trump says, 'we have it totally under control'.

Jan. 24 Trump says, '"China has been working very hard to contain the Coronavirus. The United States greatly appreciates their efforts and transparency. It will all work out well. In particular, on behalf of the American People, I want to thank President Xi!"

Jan. 30 Trump says, 'But we're working with China, just so you know, and other countries very, very closely. So it doesn't get out of hand."

Feb. 10 Trump says, '"Looks like by April, you know, in theory, when it gets a little warmer, it miraculously goes away.

Feb. 24 Trump says, '"The Coronavirus is very much under control in the USA. We are in contact with everyone and all relevant countries. CDC & World Health have been working hard and very smart. Stock Market starting to look very good to me!"

March 17 Trump says, '"This is a pandemic. ... I felt it was a pandemic long before it was called a pandemic."

and on and on with Trump's misguided mind not taking the virus seriously enough in the beginning, choosing to believe magic fairies will make it miraculously go away, and now having the most cases and deaths from COVID-19 world wide under his watch.

Blame the WHO, blame China, blame Obama and Hillary, blame the Governors, blame Dr Fauci, blame Bigfoot and the Area 51 Aliens....it's always someone else, it's never the President who thinks he has "total authority"...

The Trump Clown Show has now killed over 83K Americans in just three months...

Remember back on Feb 29th, the day we had our first US death? What was the President doing then? Golfing...and planning more upcoming re-election rallies...

And what did he do yesterday? Stand on a stage and smile while unfurling the Space Force flag, while another 2K Americans died...

Russia duped a bunch of Americans into electing a psycho in 2016....

it would be hard to say they didn’t.

Why would they purposefully release a virus that killed thousands of their own and decimated their own economy? And made them (even more of) a black sheep in the eyes of the international community? What did they exactly gain from that? Who in China benefitted from "releasing" the virus?

Don't listen to Fox News and its twisted takes.

Has nothing to do with FOX News, every news outlet all over the world were saying it, even the Chinese officials admitted it Wuhan is in China, at least that’s what I learned in school.

Let's make it clear that Trump should be blamed for lack of action

But liberals want to give China a pass? When Trump blocked all international travel from China entering the US while China was still allowing international travel and allowing its people to spread the virus knowingly was beyond irresponsible and Trump had every right to take action, not only should applauded, but because of that his actions probably saved thousands of lives, let’s make that clear.

and acting like an idiot in not assessing the danger of a pandemic he didn't see coming because he's too stupid. The worst president, ever.

The CCP not being transparent and lying about the severity of this deadly virus telling the world, there’s nothing to really fear is what made leaders not take this virus seriously, even the medical experts thought it wasn’t a pandemic at the time.

Jan. 22 Trump says, 'we have it totally under control'.

Jan. 24 Trump says, '"China has been working very hard to contain the Coronavirus. The United States greatly appreciates their efforts and transparency. It will all work out well. In particular, on behalf of the American People, I want to thank President Xi!"

All true, which goes back to how purposely bad China was and knew the severity of this virus and yet, they lied to the world and silenced every doctor that wanted or told the world of the dangers of the virus.

Feb. 24 Trump says, '"The Coronavirus is very much under control in the USA. We are in contact with everyone and all relevant countries. CDC & World Health have been working hard and very smart. Stock Market starting to look very good to me!"

Because at this point, world doctors including in the US discovered how violently dangerous this virus was and were now running against the clock. Again, had China been forthcoming, a lot of deaths could have been avoided.

and on and on with Trump's misguided mind not taking the virus seriously enough in the beginning, choosing to believe magic fairies will make it miraculously go away, and now having the most cases and deaths from COVID-19 world wide under his watch.

Yes and now, it looks like the majority of people don’t see him at fault, that’s why his poll numbers are still quite high.

Why would they purposefully release a virus that killed thousands

Why would they silence their doctors from telling the world about this virus? Why would they launch a massive cyber attack to wash every information clean on the origins of the virus?

What did they exactly gain from that?

That’s what the world wants to know.

Who in China benefitted from "releasing" the virus?

We don’t know that yet, but that’s what the intel is working on.

As long as China didn't show up with a clear proof that this Virus is NOT originated in China's Laboratories, I agree 100% wih your sentence.

China released a deadly virus upon the world.

makes sense to match China's contribution as noted in the article, but nothing more.

Its like splitting a restaurant bill 50/50 with someone who had alcohol and you had tea. Its not technically correct as that person got more, just like China gets more from the WHO.

I guess you're talking about this?

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8304471/Chinas-president-Xi-Jinping-personally-requested-delay-COVID-19-pandemic-warning.html

"On January 21, China's leader Xi Jinping asked WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus to hold back information about a human-to-human transmission and to delay a pandemic warning"

"It continued: 'China confirmed human-to-human transmission of the novel coronavirus on January 20 [prior to the alleged phone conversation].

'The WHO publicly declared on January 22 that "data collected … suggests that human-to-human transmission is taking place in Wuhan."'

So you're telling us Xi personally asked Tedros to hold back information about human-to-human transmission one day after publicly admitting that there was human-to-human transmission? Since the WHO officially declared human-to-human transmission was possible on the 22nd, if the call indeed happened, it means that Tedros didn't listen to Xi's orders. So you should praise him for not being China's lapdog, I guess?

Hacking and stealing,

Yes. But that doesn't answer my question. You said China was hacking around the world to "to wash every information clean on the origins of the virus". Who said that? Where does this information come from? We're not disputing what happened but the motive here. You made a wild claim, please support it.

If I had a sketchy past as this guy has and would have rolled over because China either pressured me or bought me off, I would have seriously declined, I do believe in integrity.

Again, that doesn't answer my question. I asked for concrete steps you would have taken as head of the WHO in regards to the research of this virus and China.

I think we should make it as painful for the Chinese to do business in the US and the rest of the world as much as we possibly can.

This has nothing to do with finding out what Covid-19 was back in december-january, which is what we're talking about. You claimed the WHO did "an extremely poor job of fact-finding this virus". I'm asking you what you would have done. Your answer is "make business hard for China".

Jsapc - China didn't "release" anything. Using that verb implies they did it on purpose.

The Chinese government locked down their military bases, but allowed it's citizens, and tourists to visit the Wuhan area AFTER they were aware that the Chinese bat virus was infecting, and killing, people. Locking down the Wuhan area, preventing visitors from visiting the Wuhan festival, shutting down air travel from China, closing China's borders, all would have prevented the virus from Wuhan, China from spreading TO THE REST OF THE WORLD. While the rest of the world was being infected in 2019, elected Democrats in the U.S. were wasting their time trying to remove Trump from office. China released this deadly virus to Asia, and Europe, but the usual suspects knee-jerk reaction is to insist on blaming Trump for China's failures. Simply un-believable.

So y'oure saying the world was being infected by the Corona virus in 2019 before the first official death from the virus (January 10th)? So how would have China shut its own country down to protect the world before it knew that Covid-19 was actually killing people?

I don't agree with giving any money to the WHO at this time. The money is better spent elsewhere.

Blacklabel - the WHO should have told us that human to human transmission was possible. As they already knew, because Taiwan showed them. 

YES, the WHO had the information needed to warn the world that China had released a deadly virus, but China didn't want that information released, and China didn't want Taiwan to be recognized by it's pet WHO. The entire world is in danger because of the actions by the Chinese government, and the lack of action by the WHO. But the usual suspects are still trying to distract from China's, and the WHO's, responsibility by playing politics and blaming Trump. They would like us to think that the deaths in Italy should be blamed on Trump. They would like us to think that the deaths in Japan should be blamed on Trump. They would like to, but their political theater is simply un-believable.

No, I am talking about Taiwan notifying the WHO the end of December of human to human transmission. but the WHO denying it on Jan 14th and hiding it until Jan 20, and even then calling it limited.

All because China doesnt like Taiwan and the WHO wanted to support that.

I could not agree more. I saw the article here yesterday of people going crazy that Japan is also now asking China to investigate the origins of this. they are only mad because they dont want Japan to be seen as supporting a position Trump has already taken.

So instead we get to argue over the verb "release" to try to deflect from any China accountability for this.

But the usual suspects are still trying to distract from China's, and the WHO's, responsibility by playing politics and blaming Trump.

Because the Chinese know when it comes to race, they have an alibi.
