    “President Trump has decided to suspend its WHO financing ...”

    Given WHO director-general, Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus's strange accusations when it was disclosed that the free republic of Taiwan had warned his organisation, D. Trump's decisicon seems to be one of his few sensible decisions.

    It would've been a hell of a lot more sensible to suspend funding after the pandemic was over!

    As long as Adhanom is facilitating the Chinese spreading the disease with the withholding of information and the dispensing of faulty equipment like tests and protective equipment, he is a menace to the world.

    I totally agree Demon Tree, whatever may have been done differently, now is not the time for Trump to play macho. It's also not the time to start being Sinophobic, that won't make anything better in the world.

    The top ten contributors give WHO US$ 3,396,000,000 or 35.3 times China's lousy US$ 96.2 million (2.8 percent of the contributions).

    2 private organizations pay 6.15 resp. 1.49 times as much as China.

    (China did support Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus's election as WHO's director-general ... but that, of course, does not influence his attitude against Taiwan).
