    That's nice he feels that way. He doesn't have the authority to stop all support.

    One thing you'll learn about Trump is that he says a lot of things just to get his base excited. Whether he intends to follow through with it or not is a different story; usually he has no intention of doing any such work. This is another such case.

    In hindsight, it feels like the USA was in the forefront in times of troubles either because they were profitting or because they caused those troubles in the first place.

    I might be wrong, of course.

    The US amazes me even more with each passing day. Let's see what he has to say more about CHY-NA. It's all fun and games to blame others until you start realizing your Wealth Care system sucks and you also stop supporting the WHO.

    im sure future generations will be horrified when they learn of this period in time. i think the main question they will have is HOW?

    Careful what you're saying. Like the average American cares. They'll go on about posting on social media how it was "horrifying" just to get the attention and likes. You can't have a serious president when the people who voted him, hate free health care and education (and still use an arbitrary retarded system for measurements). I thought first that the Balkans had the most corrupt politicians, but the US takes the first place for this. Look it's a beautiful continent with amazing places to visit and live in, but until they set up free health care and education (and changing the system of measurements), I don't see the US progressing except spending trillions of dollars for the military like they always do. I guess spending trillions of dollars every year is cheaper instead of fixing your own problems at home.

    As someone who lives outside the USA, I hope I can re-assure you that many of us realize that most Americans disapprove of Mr. Trump. And we are able to draw a distinction between the clown at 1600 Pennsylvania and the (mostly) good people of your nation.

    Hang in there - with any luck Mr. Trump will otherwise occupied as of January 20th.

    Addenda: Just realized you are not an American.

    because the average american doesn't care, the americans have the president they elected...
    No, like you I'm watching from the sidelines. I just see the effects of Mr Trumps tweeting. No matter if he can actually stop the funding to WHO or not, just by announcing it he devalues the US reputation.

    Smart move on Donald's part -- if the WHO reports about how shoddily the US handled coronavirus, Donald can dismiss it as sour grapes... and of course, his followers will believe him.
