On Friday, President Trump announces that the United States will withdraw from the World Health Organization.
The announcement comes after China misled the World Health Organization for months with regard to the COVID-19 pandemic. The World Health Organization also refuses to implement multiple reforms that were proposed by the United States. The reforms could have saved countless lives if implemented.
During the supposed peak of their pandemic, China locked down the Wuhan province by not allowing them to travel to the rest of China. During the same lockdown period, Chinese officials allowed those in Wuhan to travel to other parts of the world and spread the virus.
President Trump stated that the nearly $500 million the U.S. provides the WHO annually will be redirected towards other international aid programs. It is tremendous to see the President of the United States our American interests first by moving funds away from the Chinese ran World Health Organization.
