After President Donald Trump, announced that the United States would stop funding the World Health Organization (WHO) because of its negligent role in managing the CCP (Chinese Communist Party) Virus pandemic, several leaders from different countries are now reconsidering their support for the organization.
According to the Washington Examiner, on Thursday, April 16, the president interacted with some of the G-7 heads of state in a video conference to discuss the international health organization’s response to the global crisis caused by the CCP Virus.
Participating in the conference were the leaders of Canada, France, Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom, and Italy, as well as their host, President Trump, who demanded “a review and reform process” for the “lack of transparency and chronic mismanagement of the pandemic by the WHO,” according to a White House report.
The United States is one of the largest contributors to the WHO, providing $400 million to $500 million annually, President Trump said at a White House press conference on April 14.
“We have deep concerns over whether America’s generosity has been put to the best use possible” Trump said, contrasting the “failed to adequately obtain, vet, and share information in a timely and transparent fashion” about the virus.
China, which is being accused of covering up and manipulating relevant information about the spread of the virus as it spread around the world, only contributes about $40 million to the WHO, which has been accused of being its accomplice.
Meanwhile, the president said Tuesday that a 60-90 day investigation would be conducted into why the “China-centric” WHO had caused “so much death” by severely mismanaging and covering up” the spread of the CCP Virus, according to Fox News.
Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo on Wednesday urged the director of the Chinese Communist Party’s Foreign Affairs Office, Yang Jiechi, to have “full transparency and information sharing to combat the VID-19 pandemic and prevent future outbreaks,” Reuters reported.
