Washington: Officials said on Tuesday that President Donald Trump has formally begun to withdraw from the United States from the World Health Organization, which makes up for the threat of United Nations agencies’ response to the coronavirus.
The United States is the largest financial donor to the World Health Organization (WHO)-leading to a global disease struggle from polio to measles to mental health-but as the coronavirus hits harder, it is increasingly becoming Trump Quasi-head.
A State Department spokesperson threatened that after threatening to suspend US $400 million in annual donations and then announce withdrawal, Trump has officially notified UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres that he has begun to withdraw US troops.
The evacuation is valid for one year July 6, 2021-Trump’s presumptive Democratic opposition, Joe Biden, will surely prevent it. If he defeats Trump in the November election, he will Stay in WHO.
Stephane Dujarric, a spokesman for Guterres, confirmed that the United States has issued a notice.
Duharic said that under the conditions set by the United States when it joined the World Health Organization in 1948, Washington must withdraw one year earlier and fulfill its remaining shared financial obligations.
“To call Trump s response to COVID chaotic and incoherent doesn t do it justice,” said Senator Robert Menendez, the top Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee, who said that Congress was notified.
“This won t protect American lives or interests — it leaves Americans sick & America alone,” he said.
Trump accused the World Health Organization (WHO) of prejudice against China, saying it ignored the early signs of this deadly virus spreading from person to person.
Although many public health advocates have made some criticisms of the World Health Organization, they question whether there are other powers of world institutions besides cooperation with China? China first discovered COVID-19 late last year.
Critics say Trump is trying to shift criticism of his ability to deal with the American pandemic. The United States pandemic has caused the highest number of deaths to date.
