Trump Proves A Naked Imperialist Aggressor By Stopping Funds to WHO: CPI
Updated: Apr 16, 2020
The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India (CPI) issued the following statement today (April 15, 2020) severely condemning US President Donald Trump’s halting of its share of funding to the WHO:
The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India severely condemns in unequivocal terms the US halting on April 14, 2020, of its share of funding to the World Health Organization. President Donald Trump had the cheek to accuse the global body of mismanaging the COVID-19 pandemic. The US, the worst-hit country by far in the pandemic, also the organisation’s biggest funder alleged that “the WHO failed in its basic duty and it must be held accountable.”
Reports say Trump further charged that ‘had WHO done its job to get medical experts into China to objectively assess the situation on the ground and to call out China’s lack of transparency, the outbreak could have been contained at its source with very little death’.
The Party feels that at this time of global crisis in all sectors of activities and even to human life itself, Trump’s unilateral move of skin-saving for delayed shutdown action by pointing fingers at WHO smacks of being a naked imperialist aggressor against multi-lateral global agency, engaged in global public health activities.
