Trump renews shake-down of WHO as a forecast of showers is expected for his tomb

2 min read

More diversions from the actual crisis as Trump issues an ultimatum to the WHO.

President Donald Trump on Monday threatened to make the freeze on U.S. funding for the World Health Organization permanent.

He also laid out allegations of “missteps” in the way the agency responded to the coronavirus in a letter he said he sent to the WHO's leader.

The letter, which was posted to Trump's Twitter account and comes midway through the World Health Assembly, is addressed to WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. It accuses the organization of an “alarming lack of independence from the People's Republic of China.”

But cutting off funding as a punishment is counterproductive and deeply absurd. Indeed, even if you accept that the WHO committed serious errors, the timeline is still far more damning to Trump, by the terms that he himself has set through his criticism of the organization.
