Mike Bloomberg’s Statement on Trump’s Decision to Pull Funding from WHO

“Withholding funding from the World Health Organization (WHO) is an attempt by the president to shift blame for his own failures to prepare our country for this crisis – and tragically, it will lead to more suffering and death around the world. The coronavirus is a massive global challenge that requires international cooperation and coordination, which the WHO is uniquely positioned to support – and which is especially important given the lack of leadership coming from the White House. The WHO is providing critical help to governments and healthcare workers on the frontlines of this crisis, including in many low-income countries – work that Bloomberg Philanthropies has been glad to support. While the president points fingers, others are taking action. We must do everything we can to help them, and Congress must not let this dangerous decision stand.”
