When he accused the World Health Organization (WHO) in China on 19 COVID-pandemic and suspended payments of US Agency wherein the soft, President Donald Trump has put the strategic issue of the century on the table. What is the best way to win the global competition with Beijing: America First multinational cooperation or confrontation? The battle for the WHO shows that the correct answer is a matter of life and death for hundreds of millions of people. Trump and his allies say that the Geneva-based WHO botched the response global pandemic management of the Beijing crisis to praise his denial COVID-19 parrot threats and opposing restrictions on travel to and from the country. “The WHO has taken willingly value secured China’s face,” Trump said Tuesday when he announced the suspension of aid to the White House. “Trust in China have likely caused a 20-fold increase in cases worldwide,” he said. Some critics of the president also agreed that those who were too deferential to the beginning of the crisis in China. But they say undermine the agency is counterproductive. Since World War II, the United States and the liberal democracies have fought missions and international standards organizations such as the WHO to define. cutting funding for the agency in the midst of a global pandemic, which critics say only guarantees more, not less, weigh at a time by China when the country seeks to expand its influence in international bodies. “If we give in the field, of course, fill this space in China,” said the ambassador. Joseph DeTrani, the former CIA director of the East Asia operations. “You do that, as we speak.” It is not only the WHO. The attack follows the agency’s administration Trump stripping models threaten US funding of some international organizations such as the Human Rights Council of the United Nations for others to retreat. also carries out the most comprehensive UN strategy transformation of China “in the foreign policy platform,” says Kristine Lee, Associate Fellow with the Asia-Pacific Security Program at the Center for a New American Security. The Chinese Communist Party sees COVID-19 as “opportunities on the world stage to start” “catalyze a renewed sense of ambition,” she says. These efforts are relatively new. Deng Xiaoping, the successor to China’s revolutionary founder Mao Zedong President has taken an isolationist strategy and avoided China International complications for years. But the current Chinese president Xi Jinping has sought expansion of the influence in international bodies. China has already maneuvered party officials in top positions in at least four of the 15 UN specialized agencies, while only the United States leads. And China’s efforts to influence the WHO, the health arm of the United Nations, a good example of this strategy, say experts on both sides of the debate.

At the WHO, the China’s contribution will be increased by 52% in 2014 to about $86 million over the two years of agency funding cycle, according to the Council on Foreign Relations. This is a modest sum compared to the United States from $839 million in the same period, but it reinforces the idea that China is an increase rather than a static or decreasing influence in the United Nations, China has indirect political influence exercised to same time. Beijing was talking about a strong supporter of the appointment of the general manager now Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, a former senior Ethiopian government officials and invited him to Beijing in China before his election to the position in 2017. It is unclear how much influence these movements have actually led Beijing within WHO, but the Agency’s response to China’s role in the 19-COVID outbreak was attracted criticism from many quarters. When the crisis began in the early months of this year, which praised the transparency of China to fight the virus, and leaned Dr. Tedros Beijing soon moved to silence and even to criticize the prison doctors who have dared to speak of the spread the disease. The WHO also Beijing early dismissal of fears intensified that the virus was highly contagious, tweeting on January 14, that no evidence of “man to man”, an epidemiological term artistic media has spread that the light comes from a person to ‘ other come later. If Trump travel restrictions imposed on China, warned Dr. Tedros such restrictions could increase “fear and stigma, with little benefit to public health”. And to ensure that failed to real DNA samples of the virus to determine, could help where the epidemic began, possibly controversially live animal China “wet markets”, and how he develops. More than two million people are infected with the COVID 19 and 136,908 have been killed by the virus From Wednesday evening, according to Johns Hopkins University. “Perhaps the WHO their work done medical experts to come to China to objectively assess the situation on the ground and call the China’s lack of transparency, the epidemic could was contained at the source,” said Trump. “It would save thousands of lives and avoid global economic damage.” In his defense, said the WHO Executive Director Dr. Michael Ryan journalists in Geneva on Wednesday that the organization, the world had become a hotbed of “a whole new respiratory virus in early January” attentive, but that it took time to establish with certainty how it was contagious. Dr. Maria Van Kerkhove, who heads the technical COVID 19 WHO team, adding that the agency had warned on 11 January that the virus was spread through “respiratory droplets” and physical contact, and WHO investigators were at the epicenter of the virus visit 10 days later. In his address with his two colleagues Wednesday, said Dr. Tedros that he deplores the decision Trump. His agency now “assessment”, to be as different programs such as the fight against polio to combat new cases of Ebola haemorrhagic fever in central Africa affected by all the cuts means. He said he received a Member States’ research, including the United States, when the virus was under control. “Without a doubt, will identify areas for improvement. And it is to learn the lesson for all of us,” he said. Since January, even the government has oscillated between Trump attacking China to address COVID-19 and try to profit from China’s growing economic power. The United States has signed the first phase of a huge trade agreement with China on January 15, just one day after the statement of the WHO Beijing was seconded that the virus does not spread from person to person. On February 7, Trump praise poured on Chinese leader Xi, told reporters that it was “very good” pandemic management and chirps that “great discipline takes place in China, as President Xi strong results in what will be an operation success, work closely with China to help! “Trump now says US funding of those who are arrested while its pandemic response occurred. It is not clear how much help, who are directly affected, how much of these funds are appropriated by Congress already. The United States is the largest contributor to WHO, which currently contributes almost 15% of the budget, according to the WHO. As of the United States Trump support is limited, other nations have stepped up to the call of the UN response to more than two billion dollars to fight the virus, including US allies Britain more than $80 million dollars for ‘ WHO and Canada has committed $50 million pledge. And Trump move has opened the door for Beijing. China’s UN ambassador promised in Geneva, an additional $20 million COVID 19 early March to joy tweeted to fight Dr. Tedros. China also fast medical help for Europe, the Middle East and even the United States, is positioned to fight as a leading global pandemic. Andrew Weber, a former State Department Deputy Coordinator for Ebola response that Trump movement called “cutting off your nose to spite your face.” “The WHO, CDC in the world”, says Weber, who at the Council based in Washington, on the strategic risk is now Senior Fellow. “By all means, use our influence to push reform, but not cut in the middle of a pandemic,” he says. Michael McCaul, the member of the Commission shall classify the House Foreign Affairs, said that China is a sinister influence, and that there is some kind of investigation bipartisan in what he called “the worst cover-up in the” Beijing history. responsible for that “incompetence or complicity” of the outbreak a global pandemic to be, say Texas Republican TIME. But traced to several congressional investigations are likely to be transferred to the Republicans, all the blame on China are set, while the Democrats attack what they see as disastrously slow response to the pandemic Trump. “I am concerned that when partisan oversight that loses credibility because it will be more focused on the reaction and focused more on management, rather than on what the Chinese Communist Party with WHO … The whole thing in the first place “said McCaul. Trump critics like Democratic Congressman Adam Schiff of California have agreed that China and the WHO has handled the wrong pandemic, but the ship called the WHO funding of an “exercise in distraction” Trump “spectacular failure cut” to answer the crisis. Ship is one of a handful of senior parliamentarians from both sides of a 9.11-style Commission to beat China to investigate the WHO pandemic and the response of the administration. Ship warned that the attack on the international agency could backfire. “As America has alienated these international organizations and threatened its funding and criticized their work, they have the Chinese are beginning to invest more resources.” This investment will ally pulls away, says TIME. “Some of them are based on China as an emerging power to be, and see America in Trump as a power in decline.” There is evidence of the idea that America Trump Prime China’s approach will support the ambitions of assistance. If the United States fell by membership on the human body Rights of the United Nations is Mike Pompeo Secretary cited the “chronic bias against Israel,” he said the United States would not “complicit” if organizations “undermine our national interests and of our allies. “But without the US does not challenge China was dictatorial in a Venezuelan regime resistance without foyer position in advising, despite its widespread campaign of violence against its own people, and Beijing has been able to block criticism of their oppression Uighurs in Xinjiang province. What moves Whatever the long-term costs of Trump, can see short-term gains. GOP strategist Alice Stewart told TIME anti-gaming movement, which is well Trump bases. “The president is trying only to make sure that if America is a big fan of these international organizations, should be prepared to have your back. We’re not an ATM to the WHO and the President Trump makes it very clear,” he says. China has lied and people died, and while the Democratic narrative on detailed time Trump quotes and actions and complex tools to statements of national power, the law defense production are based, as the narrative Republicans becomes much easier . A Trump confidant, who worked on the presidential campaign in 2016, called the movement against the international body “is considered as accomplices” “a home run”, such as the WHO, with the Chinese Communist Party. China is “the new Mexico of its promises” for voters Trump in 2020, he said, speaking in Trump anonymously to discuss the re-election campaign strategy. “China now has weaponized COVID Thanks be to our advantage.” See Trump criticizes the critical political logic diverting Glacier White House COVID-19 response to irresponsible global organization.
