Trump, who has reacted angrily to accusations his administration’s response to the worst epidemic in a century was haphazard and too slow, had become increasingly hostile towards the U.N. agency before announcing the halt on Tuesday.

I’ve typed and erased, typed and erased ...

This is an atrocity made by a simpleminded, spiteful weak man in an attempt to direct blame away from himself and his administration. Yes, the WHO has made mistakes. Yes, there are things that can be changed within. However, now is not the time to cut a significant amount of funding - the US has effectively taken more lives, especially those of lower income countries, by doing so.

But it’s us us us, right America?

I have stated since the pandemic began that a large part of the pandemic response has been directly correlated to the failure of the federal government. Instead I’ve been told it has no place, to keep politics out of threads, keep it on the “blue” side or that I “just hate Trump.”

No. I just point out actions. This is one of them. The WHO could go bankrupt, fire staff ... in the middle of a pandemic.

As a human being, I’m sickened by the last four years. This pandemic, and almost every decision the last 3 months? I never think it could get worse, yet it does.

I think Trump is right...they should be investigated.

WHO “routinely has spent about $200 million a year on travel expenses, more than what it doles out to fight some of the biggest problems in public health, including AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria combined.

And Tedros...
