The Quote by Donald Trump on the WHO
“The WHO really blew it. For some reason, funded largely by the United States, yet very China centric. We will be giving that a good look. Fortunately I rejected their advice on keeping our borders open to China early on. Why did they give us such a faulty recommendation?” -Donald Trump on the WHO
I think that this quote by Donald Trump on the WHO is absolutely correct. In fact, although it isn’t as eloquent as quotes by other famous leaders, I think that in it, Trump hit the nail on the head in two ways. Or, as he’d say, he hit the nail on the head in two “yuge, terrific ways.”
And really, he did. The two big points of his speech are, I think, relatively self-evident. But, in case you need them laid out, here they are:
- The WHO is a terrible, China-biased organization
- Despite its supposed medial proficiency, it gave absolutely ridiculously bad advice about how to deal with the burgeoning Chinese flu.
Point 1: The WHO is Biased Towards China
You know, if an American ate some disgusting creature like a bat or pangolin and then started a plague that shut down the world economy there would be immediate denunciations and repercussions of the US on the world stage. That’s because we’re in the West and, despite the great values we’ve brought to the world, the left hates us.
But, of course, China is adept at playing the past transgressions, cultural victim card. “The British Empire sold us opium in the 19th Century, so we’re beyond reproach!” So, I suppose that means that the WHO, full of representatives of other historically aggrieved nations, is never going to criticize China for its irresponsible behavior.
Additionally, the WHO has now waded into political waters; according to its leadership, Taiwan, despite handling the Chinese flu crisis excellently, won’t be recognized because it is not a sovereign state. That’s absurd and shows that the WHO is pro-China, anti-medicine, and anti-decency. The Chinese did this and are liable for it. Because of their lies, the world is suffering. Taiwan, on the other hand, has performed excellently throughout this crisis.
Unfortunately, few people, up till now at least, have been unwilling to call out the WHO, and other international organizations like it, for being so pro-China. Luckily, our president is, as shown by this quote by Donald Trump on the WHO.
Point 2: The WHO Gave Bad Advice
If there’s one important takeaway from this quote by Donald Trump on the WHO, it’s that we shouldn’t trust the technocrats. If you read The Best and the Brightest, then you already knew that. Technocrats are the ones that got us into the quagmire of Vietnam that the men in Phase Line Green had to struggle through. They’re the ones that, through globalization, sold out our economy. They’re the ones in the WHO that gave President Trump bad advice on how to deal with the pandemic.
Thankfully, Trump didn’t go along with their bad advice. Next time we might not be so lucky. I trust his leadership, but we might not always be so lucky with our leadership.
This quote by Donald Trump on the WHO is one that every American needs to hear and listen to, like his one on adversity. The WHO sold us out in favor of China. That’s unacceptable and we need to seriously reevaluate our relationship with both China and the WHO because of this crisis.
