Trump and World Health Organization
The US president, Trump, blames World Health Organization for the pandemic in the USA. Trump declared WHO “china-centric” and is suspicious that they are hiding information.
According to trump:
World Health Organization failed in its basic duty and it must be held accountable
The question arises, Why Trump blames WHO? It was the World Health Organization that said there is no need to ban the travels. Trump claims that they could have prevented the virus from spreading in the USA if the WHO shared the information about Coronavirus on time. So Trump announced that they are halting World Health Organization funds. World Health Organization was funded the most by the US. Trump clearly blames China for this mess because the Coronavirus originated from Wuhan, China.

Trump claims that
The WHO failed to investigate credible reports from sources in Wuhan that conflicted directly with the Chinese government’s official accounts
Pulling out of the WHO makes America less secure. It makes another pandemic more likely.— Chris Murphy (@ChrisMurphyCT) April 14, 2020
It only serves Trump’s political interests, as he desperately grasps for a scapegoat to deflect attention from his fatal mishandling of this crisis.
Many people are against this decision, as these are desperate times, and WHO was the best ally in these times.
According to Dr. Patrice Harris, the president of the American Medical Association:
Cutting funding to the WHO – rather than focusing on solutions is a dangerous move at a precarious moment for the world,
However, there are people in support of this decision too and also blame WHO for this pandemic.
According to Jim Jordan
My friend @replouiegohmert says it best: “We don’t have to pay organizations to lie to us. They’ll probably do it for free!”He’s right. The WHO wasn’t honest about coronavirus. And I applaud President Trump’s decision to halt funding.
Trump and Coronavirus New Vaccine
According to The Guardian, trump tried to buy exclusive access to the Coronavirus vaccine for the US only. Which is considered to be very selfish. This is a global pandemic, there is no vaccine yet. Everyone deserves to be vaccinated. Not only the US but the whole world.
CureVac laboratory, a german firm is developing the vaccine and Trump has eyes on it. But both German and the US denied that this ever happened.
