The United States will pay more than $200 million to the World Health Organization (WHO) by the end of the month after President Joe Biden decided to reverse Donald Trump’s plan to withdraw from the international body, as announced on Wednesday, Feb. 17, by Secretary of State Antony Blinken.
According to reports, the sum is equivalent to the commitments that the United States had made to The Who, of which it has been its largest donor. And following Biden’s reinstatement announcements, it is expected that he will once again become a donor, Fox News reported.
“This is a key step forward in fulfilling our financial obligations as a WHO member and it reflects our renewed commitment to ensuring the WHO has the support it needs to lead the global response to the pandemic,” Blinken said at a virtual session of the U.N. Security Council for the CCP Virus.
Thus, the United States officially returns to the organization that was complicit in the Chinese Communist Party’s arrangements that led to the biggest health, social, and economic crisis in recent times.
“The United States will work as a partner to address global challenges. This pandemic is one of those challenges and gives us an opportunity not only to get through the current crisis, but also to become more prepared and more resilient for the future,” Blinken added.
Former President Donald Trump, in an act of extreme courage, denounced the pathetic actions of the WHO in both the health management of the pandemic and the political management of the situation, which had global reach. Above all, he repeatedly denounced the complicity of the organization with the authorities of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) that covered up the outbreak of the virus for months, while the WHO received complaints from countries such as Taiwan alerting about the situation, which were completely disregarded by the health agency.
President Trump, announced the suspension of U.S. funding for the WHO in April 2020, arguing that it was making “grotesque mistakes related to the CCP virus pandemic.”
“We want to investigate the World Health Organization because they really misqualified it. They didn’t heed the call, they could have announced it months earlier, they should have known, and they probably did know,” President Trump said at the time.
In parallel, President Trump stressed that the U.S. was the largest contributor to WHO and could not allow such aberrations by WHO, which led him to cancel the transfer of funds altogether. The reduction of funds suffered by the organization was significant, considering that a quarter of the annual amounts that WHO received from all its 194 members came from the United States.
“WHO plays a crucial role in the global fight against the deadly HIV/AIDS-19 pandemic, as well as countless other threats to global health and health security. The United States will remain a full participant and a global leader in confronting such threats and advancing global health and health security,” Biden’ said in January, in a letter to U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres, in which he signed the U.S. surrender sentence to the globalist power of the WHO.
Given such a supposed commitment to global health, it seems difficult to explain why only a year after the virus began to spread around the world, the WHO sent for the first time a delegation to China to “investigate the origin of the virus,” and even more controversial knowing that among the 10 researchers who traveled, there was at least one of them strongly linked to the Wuhan Institute of Virology and the Chinese Communist Party.
