Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

Laurie Garrett: On Friday, President Donald Trump declared that the United States would be terminating its relationship with the World Health Organization (WHO). It was a decision both immoral and likely illegal. It also encapsulates the most questionable aspects of the president's leadership style: his penchant to blame others for his mistakes, his refusal to share the global stage politely with other actors, his indulgence of blind self-interest, and his utter contempt of science.

The pain for this childish abhorrent behavior will now be felt on the COVID-19 battlefields and in every poor community that relies on U.N. agencies for emergency food, child immunizations, essential medicines, and guidance. Trump's decision to punish others for his own failings is no surprise at this point in his presidency--and still completely reprehensible.

Pres Trump has asserted that China has total control over W.H.O.

Yet the United States contributes ten times what China contributes.

Once Pres Trump pulls the United States out of W.H.O. will China go in to fill the vacuum, as Pres Xi has mentioned in other areas?

In other words, is Pres Trump's actions actually promoting the exact behavior he is erroneously using to justify his actions?

In other, other words, did Pres Trump think this through?

We didn't a rep to the WHO Board for 3 years! WTF did Trump think was going to happen?

If someone had to think up the stupidest thing Trump could do in the middle of a pandemic, this is it.

Trump can be a nationalist all he wants to, but this pandemic is a global event, not limited to the U.S., and requires a worldwide effort to end it.
