Does he have any right to say this?
The former President Jimmy Carter has recently come out and said that he is “distressed” about President Trump’s decision to stop funding the World Health Organization.
Carter stated, “I am distressed by the decision to withhold critically needed U.S. funding for the World Health Organization, especially during an international pandemic. WHO is the only international organization capable of leading the effort to control the virus.”
Carter isn’t the only one who disapproves of Trump’s decision. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi also stated, “This is another case, as I have said, of the president’s ineffective response, that ‘a weak person, a poor leader, takes no responsibility. A weak person blames others. This decision is dangerous, illegal and will be swiftly challenged.”
“We can only be successful in defeating this global pandemic through a coordinated international response with respect for science and data. But sadly, as he has since Day One, the president is ignoring global health experts, disregarding science, and undermining the heroes fighting on the frontline, at great risk to the lives and livelihoods of Americans and people around the world.”
They seem to have forgotten that the WHO informed people that the virus did not spread through human interactions. Read the full story here.
