    Cutting the Funding: The WHO, Trump and the Coronavirus Wars

    The US president is in a warring mood. Having declared himself a president at war, a meaningless gesture given that the US is always, somewhere in the world, at war, finding necessary enemies in distraction was always going to be a priority. Donald Trump already had the “China virus” in his artillery, attaching nationality to pathogen. Now, and it took some time in coming by his standards, is the World Health Organization, a body which has, as its utopia, an idea of health as “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being, and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”

    My perspective of this has been a continuous war between who wants control of the country in 2020 and 2021.

    1. The Democrats who want a complete lockdown/shutdown, crashing the economy and blaming Trump for it all and getting pandering votes for them. Mandatory Vaccines through the WHO and Gates Foundations and Digital Currency.

    2. Trump and the Republicans wanting to open the economy back, Trump in bed with multiple vaccination companies. If the 2nd or 3rd waves come( created), Mandatory Vaccinations will come into play and Trump will be seen as a hero by dealing with these vaccine companies and he will be re-elected.

    Regardless the people are screwed ...

    Is the problem that the WHO seems beholden to a single country or that the WHO seems beholden to a single country that isn't the United States of America :ohhh:

    Bullet points Part 1
    • The US tends to contribute a large slice of funding to the WHO – some $400 million a year and ten times, say, what China does. It has been
    • US been foot dragging lately: $200 million is still to be paid for the last round.
    • (As a point of interest, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is the second largest donor, with a touch over $200 million based on 2018-9 figures.)
    • In a flourish of indignation, Trump has decided to freeze the revenue stream.
    • On Tuesday, he claimed that the WHO had “failed in its basic duty” in responding to COVID-19.
    • “I am directing my administration to halt funding while a review is conducted to assess the World Health Organization’s role in severely mismanaging and covering up the spread of the coronavirus.”
    • The White House has been eager to disgorge any material to press outlets keen to understand the nature of WHO villainy and corruption.
    • Accusations read like mirror portraits, and the headline of one of the factsheets is hysterical: “Delaying world mobilization in the fight against COVID-19: Working with China to cover up the deadly spread of COVID-19, who hindered critical efforts that could have saved lives.”
    • The charge list on the White House fact sheet is the usual muddle of slung mud and mild accuracy: the role played by brave Taiwan; the WHO deference to “Chinese propaganda that covered up the virus’ spread and fatalities, praising Beijing for its false efforts and promoting the use of Chinese traditional medicine to treat the disease.”
    • The charge list on the White House fact sheet is the usual muddle of slung mud and mild accuracy: the role played by brave Taiwan; the WHO deference to “Chinese propaganda that covered up the virus’ spread and fatalities, praising Beijing for its false efforts and promoting the use of Chinese traditional medicine to treat the disease.”
    • the US was “not alone in its well-founded criticism.
    • WHO has faced constant critique over its poor coordination, lack of transparency, and finances from multiple parties.”
    • The organisation’s director-general Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, who had previously praised Trump as showing “leadership” in this crisis (we are all entitled to slips), was regretful.
    • The US had been “a long-standing and generous friend… and we hope it will continue to be so.”

    I agree to an extent.

    It is documented that Gates is funding multiple research facilities to come up with a vaccine, so we know what his role in all of this is. Not so sure I see the vaccination angle with Trump. Trump and the Republicans just want to restart the economy, and they are willing to let the elderly population get the brunt of it in order to achieve this. Trump can't go from calling it a hoax to suddenly wanting to provide vaccinations. He doesn't want his legacy to be a tanking economy. On another note, who ever wins the election will be inheriting an economy in recession and 20M+ Americans unemployed. Could end up being a poisoned chalice for whoever wins.

    Bullet points Part 2
    • The WHO is the convenient whipping boy of pandemic and epidemic; of premature assessment or over eager commitment.
    • Uncertainty is its curse, leaving it vulnerable in such instances as the swine flu epidemic, when it was accused of being too quick off the mark in declaring it to be a pandemic;
    • slow in declaring the West African Ebola outbreak a pressing health emergency.
    • WHO, for decades, was belittled for being an auxiliary of US foreign policy.
    • “Like other United Nations (UN) agencies,” comes a sombre assessment in the American Journal of Public Health in 2016, “the WHO quietly abandoned its dreams of a collaborative community of nations and instead began to come to terms with international political realities.
    • The agency moved closer to US foreign policy and became partially captive to US resources and priorities.”
