Former President Jimmy Carter said in a statement on Wednesday that he is “distressed” over Trump’s decision to stop funding for the World Health Organization, arguing that only the United Nations-backed globalist organization is “capable” of managing the coronavirus.
“I am distressed by the decision to withhold critically needed U.S. funding for the World Health Organization, especially during an international pandemic,” Carter said. “WHO is the only international organization capable of leading the effort to control the virus.”
“As the organization’s leading sponsor, the United States has a duty to insist on full accountability,” President Trump explained recently. “America and the world have chosen to rely on the W.H.O. for accurate, timely and independent information to make important public health recommendations and decisions,” the president added. “If we cannot trust that this is what we will receive from the WHO, our country will be forced to find other ways to work with other nations to achieve public health goals.”
“We spend $500 million a year,” he added, noting that China only contributes up to $40 million annually.
