Trump Gave W.H.O. a List of Demands. Hours Later, He Walked Away.

GENEVA In late May, the American ambassador in Geneva, Andrew Bremberg, went on a rescue mission to the World Health Organization headquarters. He told its director general, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, that despite weeks of threats that President Trump would quit the health organization, the relationship could still be salvaged.

Mr. Bremberg hand-delivered a list of seven demands that American officials saw as the beginning of discreet discussions.

Hours later, Mr. Trump took the lectern outside the White House and blew it all up, announcing that the United States would leave the W.H.O. The announcement blindsided his own diplomats and Dr. Tedros alike.

If Mr. Trump thought Dr. Tedros would relent under the pressure of an American withdrawal, he was wrong. The W.H.O. leader has refused to make concessions or counteroffers, according to American and Western officials. And Mr. Trump ultimately made good on his promise to abandon a health agency that the United States helped form a half-century ago.

1. That reads like an autotranslate fail...

Definitely not written by a native anglophone.

3. Noticed right away it was a bit hinky. Autotranslate makes sense.

5. Thank you. I started reading in an English accent trying g to make it make sense.

This was rather confusing

And Mr. Trump finally made good on his promise to desert a well being company that the United States helped type a half-century in the past.

9. The NYT version was much more "normal."

The kind of writing we are used to reading, anyway. I see that the OP has been entirely swapped out now, newschant to NYT.

6. The same paragraphs fromn NYT make more sense
