Trump Withdraws From World Health Organization During a Pandemic
Trump Withdraws From World Health Organization During a Pandemic: Amid a resurgent pandemic and rising hospitalizations and deaths, President Trump pitted America against the world on Tuesday, moving to pull the United States out of the World Health Organization.
So, I guess it’s Trump against the rest of the world. Unfortunately, that “rest of the world” also happens to include all of us in the United States.
Meanwhile, Trump Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany justified pulling out of WHO by claiming “I think the world is looking at us as a leader in Covid-19.” And, she’s right. We have over twice as many infections and deaths than anyone else. If that doesn’t make us the leader, I don’t know what does.
I hate to sound pessimistic, but at this point — I’m starting to think we might have been better off, if Kim Kardashian and Kayne West had been running the coronavirus task force, right from the start.
Call me crazy, but I’m pretty sure most Americans prefer presidents who aren’t doing their best to kill all of us. On a positive note, at least the undertakers are still doing well. It’s just the rest of the economy that’s quickly dying.
