European Union Begs President Trump To Reconsider Decision To Cut Ties With W.H.O.

May 31, 2020   |   by James G. Dalton

The European Union (EU) is asking the Trump administration to reconsider its decision to end America’s relationship with the World Health Organization (WHO).

In a statement released Saturday, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen and top EU official Josep Borrell stressed that the WHO must “lead the international response to pandemics,” but to do that WHO must receive U.S. funding.

“Global cooperation and solidarity through multilateral efforts are the only effective and viable avenues to win this battle the world is facing,” von der Leyen wrote.

“The WHO needs to continue being able to lead the international response to pandemics, current and future. For this, the participation and support of all is required and very much needed.”

Von der Leyen added that America should “avoid” actions that “weaken” the global body.

“In the face of this global threat, now is the time for enhanced cooperation and common solutions. Actions that weaken international results must be avoided,” von der Leyen wrote.

“In this context, we urge the US to reconsider its announced decision.”

Trump announced Friday that the U.S. is “terminating” its relationship with the WHO over its poor response to the coronavirus and its unusually close relationship with China.

“China has total control over the World Health Organization,” said Trump Friday. “Today we will be terminating our relationship with the WHO and redirecting those funds to other worldwide and deserving urgent global public health needs.”

“China’s coverup of the Wuhan virus allowed the disease to spread all over the world. Chinese officials ignored their reporting obligations to the WHO and pressured the WHO to mislead the world when the virus was first discovered by Chinese authorities,” Trump added.

Trump had warned in mid-April that he would suspend America’s $400 million annual funding to the WHO pending a review of the organization’s handling of the coronavirus.

        Trump was right to pull out of who!!! Look who runs this organization , terrorist & China. China wants to control the world & EU just wants the US Funds because over 63% of their funding comes from US. After all the lies from China we should close off all relations with them!!!

      The WHO is just like the UN!!!!!! The united States supplies more funds to both than any other country!!!!! When they do not do the jobs that they are suppose to do why keep giving them money!!!! Here is a question for you, would “YOU” keep an employee on at the business that you own and keep paying him or her, or would you terminate them?????? Same thing here!!!!

    We don’t need an extension of the CCP working in our backyard. It has been a waste of our money to fund them if they are going to do what the CCP tells them to do. Their influence is something we don’t need in our country.

    Is there some disease in Europe that breeds naivety? It has been bad enough that this lack of reality in the past has caused WWII with Chamberlain’s fantasy about believing Hitler’s lies and almost caused Great Britain to fall. More recently in their belief of appeasement to Iran would cause them to drop their terror campaigns and bomb building. Now they are wanting to overlook the major suffering and death of people in many nations due to the betrayal of the World Health Organization in a cover-up of China’s pandemic that was foisted on the world. (Many more of their errant stupidity could be cited). These “leaders” of the EU continue to get themselves more than knee deep in trouble and then want the US to bail them out. President Trump made it quite clear that in order to support the WHO, there would have to be a reorganization and purge of the leadership. Ample time was given for them to accomplish the clean up, but they instead decided to knuckle down and call our president’s bluff. Looks like their gambling skills are as bad as their other policies. I am sure that there are well qualified and well meaning personnel in the WHO, but the leadership and direction do not allow for them to operate the way it was intended. Our country has suffered the deaths of over 100,000 people and irreparable harm by the economic impact which is still wreaking havoc. As far as I’m concerned, these people can just shut the heck up and get their heads out of their anuses.

    I think it’s a good idea to stop being part of the corrupt WHO. The American people pay the majority of all bills from all these different Organizations . The United Nations ,who and what do we get for it nothing. You can see that China is blackmailing and corrupting The WHO . Then you have smaller Middle Eastern countries corrupting the United Nations, with their voting against Israel. Every deal the world expects America to foot the bill. The Paris Climate agreement let India and China keep polluting and the Americans had to pay for it. The Iran nuclear deal which fid nothing to stop them from developing a nuclear bomb. The trans pacific accord which was very bad for America. We are not the worlds piggy bank! When the rest of the world starts paying their fair share then maybe we can have agreements!

      One of the best thing president Trump has done so far is getting out of the W.H.O which is a mouth peice for the Chinese government and the military of China.
      The top of the W.H.O is so corrupt and has no shame to change the upper management of the W.H.O how can they change when they have so many people fooled. The E.U. needs to do an investigation into the corruption of the W.H.O and it’s leaders. Till they get kicked out no country is safe. So Trump will keep getting American support for all his promises. So far he’s kept everything he said he would. So listen to what president Trump says and know that he will do anything to keep Americans safe and stronger than ever before.

    To continue to pay for a front to an admitted enemy is foolish and dangerous.
    Our President is doing the correct thing.
    The option of the E. U. is unimportant.

    If the European Union is so worried about the WHO “World Health organization” then let the free world
    join the new GHO “Global Health Organization” That would serve the entire globe
    not just the Chinese Communist Party!!

    Europeans have been blinded by the socialist leaders that have robbed their citizens of reasonable freedom and plunged them into the socialist/communist wet dream of 70-90% taxation and national debts so heavy that they cannot reasonably even pay interest payments on debt overdue for decades. Yet the people believe that as long as they are supplied with bad medicine and delayed medical procedures and ineffectual governance seeking to reduce personal freedoms and transfer all authority to the national and international government that the people will forever sleep on their laurels and quietly submit to any new transgression into their lives in the name of social progress.
