Trump threatened WHO with a complete cessation of funding

Trump threatened WHO with a complete cessation of funding

The United States has issued an ultimatum to the World Health Organization. The corresponding letter to the director of the organization, Tedros Adanom Gebreyesus, was sent by US President Donald Trump.


The American leader threatened to completely deprive the organization of funding and withdraw from it if WHO does not carry out the reforms that Washington requires within 30 days. According to Trump, during the investigation, the White House administration established the facts of "WHO's unsuccessful response to the coronavirus pandemic," therefore, reform of the organization is necessary. Among Trump’s core demands is “show independence from China.”

This audit confirmed many of the serious concerns that I raised in the last month and identified others that WHO had to respond to, especially the alarming lack of independence of the organization from China

- declared Trump.

The letter also indicates that WHO has recently made "multiple systematic mistakes in responding to a pandemic" that "cost the world too much." At the same time, Trump claims that he has already begun to discuss reforms with WHO.

Recall that in April this year, the United States suspended funding for the organization, accusing it of inappropriate response to a pandemic.

It should be noted that to date in the United States officially confirmed cases of coronavirus infection are 1 550 294, 91 981 people have died, 356 383 have recovered.

        In general, it is clear why Trump wants to subordinate WHO to the United States of America. Namely.

        After all, the Chinese have already raised the issue about the ARTIFICIAL creation of coronavirus-19 in American laboratories located on the territory of the United States itself, and in the delivery of it by American intelligence services to Wuhan and other states. True, then China seemed to have abandoned this idea.

        Nevertheless, Maria Zakharova (Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation) against this background also spoke out about the need to eliminate US biological laboratories in countries adjacent to the Russian Federation.
        Moreover, WHO initially supported the idea of ​​eliminating American bio-laboratories in other countries.

        TOTAL And now this can in no way please Trump and the same Pentagon!

          Trump is trying to divert attention from his own stocks in the fight against the epidemic with a loud screech towards China and WHO.
          In short, the search for the extreme began. The United States, of course, is excluded. Although Bruce Willis could save the world, but don't pay him laughing

        WHO, and so in principle, was an absolutely pro-American organization, like the rest, such as "international" humanitarian organizations. And then they gave a blunder with the virus (as well as the whole Western world), so you need to shift the blame on someone and look for the extreme. Moreover, the virus is not the worst. Another thing is interesting.
        reform of the organization is needed. Among Trump’s core demands is “show independence from China.”
        Very well, considering that the lion's share of drugs in the world is made in China. Eliminate India, and the whole Western world will be left without drugs at all. So much for post-industrial capitalism. As they say, for which they fought. lol

        WHO makes recommendations, and the Ministry of Health of countries listens to them one way or another. The global pharmaceutical market is steadily moving toward $ 1,5 trillion. in year. While such money is at stake and while WHO is dependent on the financial instruments of some countries, there can be no talk of any independence or impartiality.

        Everyone should fight, but like "international organizations", since they exist and receive a considerable amount of such funding, they must somehow coordinate this struggle. all the more so because they have representative offices in all countries, their own information channels and considerable powers. But it turned out to be ineffective. All these "international organizations", under the auspices of the United Nations, have long turned into bureaucratic offices in the service of Western capital. And then, when the Western political and economic system failed, WHO officials were made extreme. Okay, the Red Cross, but where is the “super duper altruists” from such a strange organization as “doctors without borders”? Or the CIA did not allocate money, are used to working only with "white helmets"? Well, you can’t do black PR here. This is not for you to do staged commercials in Syria, here are real trucks with corpses in New York, and there are already almost 100000 deaths only in the states. This can not be written in a civilized world.

    If you read carefully, Trump comes to WHO for one reason only — WHO agreed with China not to let American experts go to China to check their laboratories. This infuriated the president of the country, which, he believes, should be allowed everything. Everything. Trump demanded that WHO withdraw, as he said, from the influence of China. Moreover, the president of WHO may well answer Trump in the sense that to get out of China’s influence due to US threats doesn’t mean to get immediately under US influence in order to avoid sanctions? In this debate, it’s just interesting that Russia, inexplicably (or vice versa?) Immediately sided with the United States clearly recognizing: the American versions of the origin of the virus (although it is clear from 100 miles that American ears stick out of all the cracks in this story ), and American claims against WHO and China.

    WHO refused to support the demand for an independent investigation in Chinese biological laboratories, primarily in Wuhan. Strange for a similar organization.

    Personally, I have no doubt that the virus was created in this laboratory. Therefore, the requirement of an independent international investigation is quite fair. If it turns out that the virus was created precisely in Wuhan, China will have to compensate the world community for all costs.

    The treatment of one sick person in Russia costs 200 thousand rubles, the loss of the economy will be visible at the end of the year, at least a few percent of GDP, compensation to the families of the victims and much more - that’s the rate in this game.

    the alarming lack of independence of the organization from China
    As far as we know, all international organizations, including sports organizations, to one degree or another depend exclusively on the Anglo-Saxons, where the latter easily solve their problems against objectionable countries. And here on you - WHO depends on China. He would say bluntly: “Guys, I have elections on my nose and I don’t want to be responsible for my jambs in the fight against the pandemic. I urgently need a guilty party, but preferably two.”

      "<...> Question: In the conflict between the United States and China over possible conflicting data on the spread and occurrence of coronavirus, on whose side is Russia and why?

      Sergey Lavrov: We are on the side of justice and common sense. Justice suggests that you cannot without proof blame anyone for anything. I have already cited examples when our Western partners treat us according to the “high-likly” principle, blaming everything. The same, I think, applies to any other situation when, without presenting specific facts, a country is accused of committing serious actions that entailed consequences for people's lives. This is a thing that cannot be taken easily.
      As for common sense. It seems to me that now all forces should not be directed to shouting "hold the thief”, Point at someone with a finger, and at the union and as quickly as possible vaccine creation. Institutions in many countries of the world are working on this: in Europe, China, Russia, the USA and other countries.

      <...> any positive result on the creation of a vaccine should immediately be made universal, and the vaccine should be accessible to everyone. That will be common sense. Without geopolitics, without any selfish aspirations and without trying to derive political benefit from this tragic situation.
      <...> Representatives of the USA, France, Italy, Ireland, Spain, Australia, Portugal, and Great Britain comprise more than 30% of specialists in WHO, that is, people who are professionally involved in epidemics and health care in general. Most Western countries have specialists there in quantities that significantly exceed the average quota that they are entitled to. Of approximately 2100 specialists, one third are from Western countries. About 60 people from Italy, Canada, Australia. China has less than 40, Russia has 20. Even if China or someone else from non-Western countries had a malicious plan to use WHO to advance some of their narrowly self-interested closed interests, as a group of 40 people can do when they are opposed by more than 700 experts from Western countries united by allies commitments within NATO and the European Union? I would now concentrate on helping experts, professionals work out an antidoterather than trying to take advantage of any geopolitical, electoral or other benefits. "

    Russia's membership in such organizations dominated by the Anglo-Saxons, the EU countries, and the FSA swells the main cash contribution, looks like hard masochism (about the Russian membership in PACE, there is no word about one collective farm mat). Recent events related to sports, chem. weapons, Syria, etc. showed that Russia is either simply ignored or blamed on any issue. While the dollar is almost the only payment for resources, everything will be so, and no reforms will save Russia.

    laughing The United States has issued an ultimatum to the World Health Organization. Russia in 2020 will allocate up to $ 1 million to the World Health Organization to fight the coronavirus pandemic.
    . For example, China finances through public and private companies. The pharmaceutical company Hualan Biological Bacterin of Xinxiang alone transferred about half a million dollars to WHO last year. But nevertheless, the current attacks on WHO by the United States, though not unfounded, are more like hysteria. The authorities of the countries of the world are not at all obliged to listen to the recommendations of WHO, the organization generally has few levers of influence on anyone. And even if we assume that the announcement of the emergency mode on January 30 was a direct signal to action, it turns out that the United States was very late in responding by itself.

    “What you say matters. Help create a more equal world by using gender-neutral language if you're unsure about someone's gender or are referring to a group. https://t.co/QQRFPY4VRn #GenerationEquality via @UN_Women ”, which:

    - the words "my girlfriend" or "my boyfriend" should now be replaced by "partner"

    - the words “wife” or “husband” should be replaced by “spouse”

    in order to create a "more equal world", that is, a world where sick people with severe mental and genetic disabilities will be considered healthy.


    I would like to understand by what specific procedure do the UN clerks coordinate their statements with countries whose interests they represent?

    WHO makes recommendations. The Red Cross should fight. Who, in this situation, washed his hands

    Everyone should fight, but like "international organizations", since they exist and receive a considerable amount of such funding, they must somehow coordinate this struggle. all the more so because they have representative offices in all countries, their own information channels and considerable powers. But it turned out to be ineffective. All these "international organizations", under the auspices of the United Nations, have long turned into bureaucratic offices in the service of Western capital. And then, when the Western political and economic system failed, WHO officials were made extreme. Okay, the Red Cross, but where is the “super duper altruists” from such a strange organization as “doctors without borders”? Or the CIA did not allocate money, are used to working only with "white helmets"? Well, you can’t do black PR here. This is not for you to do staged commercials in Syria, here are real trucks with corpses in New York, and there are already almost 100000 deaths only in the states. This can not be written in a civilized world.

    White helmets magically disappeared somewhere laughing

    And for me: 1) it broke
    2) was reborn into a league of sexual reform
    3) became a stronghold of obscurantism
    4) your option
    All of the above !!! laughing

    Do not forget that WHO is a private office, which means that the owners tell them what they do!

    This audit confirmed many of the serious concerns that I raised in the last month and identified others that WHO had to respond to, especially the alarming lack of independence of the organization from China

    - said Trump. Is this an international organization or an office in the USA? belay
