Thank you my president. WHO has turned into a puppet for China. They pull the strings in whichever way they wish. Cutting ties with them is actually a welcome development and good riddance to rubbish.
I kind wish america declares war on China that have u leashed this virus onto the world and the amount of other crimes china has done. It's time for them to pay their debts

The same way they would cut ties with Afdb if they dont succeed in removing Akinwumi Adeshina from office.

It's the usual rant when they can't have their way. The earlier Africans get off their addiction to foreign aids , especially from the west, the better for it's economy.

Actually the world needs to unite against China. Trump said something very important in his speech. That China locked down Wuhan natives from traveling to Beijing & other cities.The virus didn’t reach those cities.But was okay to let people travel to the rest of the world .I think we’ve hit 100,000 deaths in the US

Congratulations.
You just answered your own questions.

Aslong as African countries lack good leadership, begging for aids from organizations such as the WHO would not end. Nigerian Senators, HORs, governors etc would rather enrich themselves than help less privileged Nigerians. Same as a lot of other African countries with corrupt leadership.



A good example below:

Major donor contributors for free HIV and malaria drugs in Nigeria and some other African countries for example includes the WHO, The US Gov through (PEPFAR), World Bank, Unicef etc

However, the budget from Donald Trump's White House last year for 2020 includes a whopping $1.35 billion in cuts to the President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR) and $392 million in cuts to the funds to fight tuberculosis and malaria. This Corona outbreak also gave the US president another opportunity or justification to remove US own contribution to the WHO. Note there are many countries that contribute to the WHOs purse not just the US
The WHO Ethiopian president, executives and workers could care less, they would still get paid their fat salary. Let's even say WHO gets disbanded (which is not possible), their staff would simply get absorbed into the UN. Na citizens of poor countries go hear am.

For this, coupled with many other holes plugging by the US gov just tells us that the US can't be bothered to offer good assistance to any disadvantaged or poor countries in the world again. It's now America first which is good for them - Nationalism.

To be honest, I can't even be bothered if Trump gets reflected in November. It actually favours me as I work in the Energy industry in Canada. Trump loves the energy industry, and he has speedily approved our pipeline that carries oil from Alberta all the way to Texas. It's a win for my Canadian economy. However, not much benefit is Trump's win for poor and shyte hole countries..Goodluck to Nigeria and Africa.

You are wrong on many counts. Yes, Trump won the election but he won due to the electoral college. He lost the popular vote by 3million votes. It’s funny that America - the acclaimed land of the free - doesn’t work on the principle of one man one vote. And na them go dey preach give us about justice and equality.

one man one vote is a scam because people in densely populated think the same. And that means that all the big cities will pick the president which is retardation

If the US is withdrawing funding from WHO,I believe they will put it into another organization that will still be of help to Africa. Its obvious who had a hand in what just happened. I don't support Trump or WHO,because I can't tell who is actually wrong right now. Trump is making me hate him already, for statement he made concerning the death of that black man the cop killed. Seems anger and confusion is taking over him..

It’s funny that America - the acclaimed land of the free - doesn’t work on the principle of one man one vote but hides behind the curtain of electoral college. And na them go dey preach give us about justice and equality. Hilary lost that election cos she was lazy, entitled and arrogant. She didn’t bother campaigning in key swing states and lost to Trump who worked harder.

As for Obama being worthless, I don’t think you understand American history or follow American politics. Obama has his flaws but he accomplished a lot. One of the biggest accomplishment of Obama was the affordable care act, which gave over 20million poor and middle class American affordable healthcare. In case you are not aware, Trump is actively trying to cancel that program. The same program that largely benefits his fans.

Lastly, if you think Trump cares about the average America, I encourage you to name one Policy he has implemented that has helped to improve the life of the average American.

God bless u ma’m.

The crybaby Trump will cut ties hundreds of times just to play his gullible worshippers.
A few weeks ago he cut ties with WHO.
In a few weeks time, he will "cut ties" again to rally his cult members.

I laugh in Greek. America will not help Nigeria or Africa. America does not even care about the health care of its citizens. A large number of Americans are going bankrupt due to medical bills. If you think I’m lying, google it. Gofundme is filled with Americans asking for help with medical bills.

The leadership of the WHO are acting like Chinese puppets too, Ghebreyesus can do better we still believe in him!!

How so, please explain?

Trump is just trying to create a distraction from his failure to response to the crises in the US.

WHO did what they could do and setup to do, their response here and interactions with China from the onset was no different from other crises, visit WHO website where the timeline of their response is fully documented.

WHO does not have staff in every city of the world to monitor crises, they rely on each country to give them accurate report on what is on ground. It is possible China mislead WHO or China didn’t know the full scale of what they were dealing with...but in late December/early January WHO started doubting what China is passing across leading them to send people on ground to access for themselves...that is how WHO functions.

Whereas as at late February, Trump was still calling it a Deep State hoax, he doubt WHO report in February, doubted US own intelligence report, fired the pandemic response team Obama put in place, defunded many Health initiatives.

Trump refused or could not filled key positions responsible to react and hand crises like these. Assistant Administrator for Global Health, Associate Administrator for Relief, Response, and Resilience, Assistant Administrator for Asia and Associate Administrator for Strategy and Operations, etc are all handled by temporary unconfirmed officials with drastic budget cuts....When you fail to prepare, you prepare to fail, that is exactly what is happening in the US and WHO have zero blames, it all results from the incompetence of the occupant of the White House.

If China is fit, she should start shouldering some of US responsibilities. That's how you know an emerging world power - not on book and internet.

If Trump can get Bill Gates to withdraw his support for WHO and the United Nations, it's finished. Bill Gates is the highest individual contributor (HNI) to those organizations and has contributed to them more than 10 countries put together.

Hate the US for all you want, that country has paid so much to keep those organizations going. Man no be for mouth; Trump has probably set China up for greatness. Let's see if the Eastern giant will be bold enough to snag the bait.

I totally support Trump on this, WHO is either comprised or complicit. They didn’t handle the incident with China very well and yet not speaking out on the mistakes or intentional actions of China, who are now deflecting the blame to the us and accusing them of not handling their situation promptly.

If US must take responsibility for their people, China must take responsibility for the world.
