United States President Donald Trump halts the world health organization funding. The halt comes after the United States felt that the WHO effort and responsibility through this pandemic were not up to the mark. The amount of 400 million dollars has been stopped, and Trump himself informed the media by holding a press conference about this. WHO is run on fundings by every country; the organization itself does not have any revenue generation modus. Trump said that those who have not taken the pandemic seriously; therefore, the organization is responsible for thousands of innocent deaths across the world. President Donald Trump alleged that he was supportive of China’s crime of misinformation and lack of information during the initial phase of COVID-19, which helped viruses spread across the globe.
The influence of china on the WHO
Donald Trump mentioned how the “who director opposed to imposing a travel ban for china due to which the European countries have kept their border open for china which eventually today costing many innocent lives.” The who guidelines which initially says there is nothing about to worry and the situation is under control due to which many countries have not taken the preventive measures and necessary actions to contain the virus on time. Instead of informing about the intensity and seriousness of the matter, Wo kept praising chins for their efforts to contain the spread. Trump said that WHO believed WHO Chinese government data, and they believed them absolutely on face values without any investigation or in-depth knowledge of the situation.

My take on trump action.
I support Donald Trump this step fully; in fact, I already have written an article regarding the same that shows WHO became an accomplice to China in this crime. Yes, you heard it right, I said it is a crime, crime of misinformation, the sin of late information, it is a crime to spend funds for fun and travel, yes it is a crime to take outbreak like this casually initially. Yes, I believe that the WHO is responsible for thousands of deaths and the economic crisis today. They should be accountable for their work, which they were not. In Fact when media personnel asked who officially asked about data of infected peoples in Taiwan, who officially not just ignored the question but also mentioned that” Taiwan is part of China and we don’t look at it as an independent entity.” Not only America but many countries should come ahead to take action against WHO by holding a transparent investigation against organizations. Stopping funding is a good idea, and many more countries should do it as soon as possible. Who intention, competence, and approach to handling this pandemic are doubtful; therefore, I reckon WHO as a partner in crime of china, which has led such havoc like situation today.
