"...Trump's Cuts to WHO Aren't About the Coronavirus"

https://www.defenseone.com/ideas/2020/04/trumps-cuts-who-arent-about-coronavirus/164631/

"...In 2016, candidate Trump attacked international organizations frequently. Since his election, UN-hating has resumed to 90s levels. The Republican party platform of 2016 contains a section titled, “Sovereign American Leadership in International Organizations.”

But Trump has lurched well beyond the platform. He pulled back out of UNESCO again, in 2017. He pulled the United States out of the UN Human Rights Council in 2018. And in his speech before the UN General Assembly last September he declared, “The future does not belong to globalists… the future belongs to sovereign and independent nations.”
And in 2020, we’re at it again, with the WHO and the coronavirus..."

1. Aw, let's face it - he wants to gather all the money he can into the US Treasury so that he can then

gather it into his own pocket. It’s obvious. He wants it all. He wants to swim in cold, hard cash. Preferably hundred dollar bills.

2. 1) He needs DISTRACTIONS 2) He doesn't trust the WHO but trusted the WHO

3) As leader of the most powerful and richest country in the world, he was unable to figure out the truth,
  despite being warned by Americans,
  despite being given pandemic playbooks by the outgoing administration,
  despite having a pandemic-fighting structure within the WH (which he disbanded in 2018),
  despite having highly educated and trained Americans inside China (who he fired in 2019).

Donny Six Words takes no responsibility at all.

6. It is about Randian hyper-individualism project on to our foreign policy.

International cooperation offends the ideologues of the christofascist right in this country.

Globalists is the modern term for the New World Order which was antisemitic, rabid anticommunist drivel. Just another fascist conspiracy theory and attack on anyone the right considers undesirable.

It escapes their razor sharp minds that participating in international treaties and involving our in international efforts is exercising our sovereignty.

8. I thought he was still taking orders from Putin.

Putin wants our allies to lose trust in us (bye bye Paris agreement and NATO), this is part of the plan, right?
