President Trump is tired of being deceived, so he is doing what most of us have been calling on him to do for months.
On Tuesday, the Trump administration formally notified the World Health Organization (WHO) it is withdrawing its support.
The withdrawal will take effect in July 2021.
Time to Go
The WHO has been front and center throughout this pandemic for its many questionable actions.
The main one, though, is the blatant misinformation the organization has given to protect China’s interests.
While speculation has been rampant for months, the WHO finally updated its website to reveal that China did not actually alert the WHO as to the presence of COVID-19 in December as it had previously stated.
Deception like that has infuriated President Trump from the outset and conservative Americans no longer want to see our tax dollars helping to fund a clearly corrupt organization.
The move by Trump was widely celebrated among conservatives, but Democrats and liberals for some reason believe we should continue to fund a corrupt organization.
Senator Bob Menendez (D-N.J.) was among the first to attack Trump for withdrawing support…
Congress received notification that POTUS officially withdrew the U.S. from the @WHO in the midst of a pandemic.
To call Trump’s response to COVID chaotic & incoherent doesn't do it justice. This won't protect American lives or interests—it leaves Americans sick & America alone.

Joe Biden has also expressed concern for the corrupt organization, stating that if elected, he would immediately rejoin the WHO and “restore our leadership on the world stage.”
There was also some dissent among Republicans, with Senate Health Committee Chairman Lamar Alexander (R-TN) stating, “I disagree with the president’s decision.
“Certainly there needs to be a good, hard look at mistakes the World Health Organization might have made in connection with coronavirus, but the time to do that is after the crisis has been dealt with, not in the middle of it.”
Personally, I don’t understand his thought process, because it would be the same as keeping on an employee after you found out they were stealing.
And trust me, just because this was the first you caught them does not mean it was the first time they were stealing; it just means it was the first time you caught them.
The United States is the largest source of funding for the WHO, yet the organization openly covered for China, needlessly putting American lives at risk, and these people want to reward the WHO for doing it by continuing to pour American taxpayer’s money into the organization.
Enough is enough, and I completely support Trump withdrawing from the WHO.
