What, you didn’t think ‘America First’ was just a slick catch-phrase did you? He’s a marketer. It was branding… a promise of the course he planned to chart as President.
The difference is, unlike so many other politicians, when Trump tells you what he plans to do — he means it.
America First — contrary to all the myths, media hyperbole and outrageous lies it has been smeared with isn’t really all that complicated.
The plans and policies put in place would be measured against a simple criterion. ‘Is (x) good for the Country either directly or indirectly?’
If the answer is ‘no’, then (x) is NOT a priority worth doing
We’re at the point where we have put the WHO on the balance scale. Is it worth keeping? Does funding it fit with our goals and values? Or have they just spouted Chinese Communist propaganda on command?
Trump slipped the whole letter into a tweet…
This is the letter sent to Dr. Tedros of the World Health Organization. It is self-explanatory! pic.twitter.com/pF2kzPUpDv

But you can read the whole thing here.
Notice it is addressed directly to Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus… the mouthpiece of China himself.
The WHO had relevant information before the New Year. But they didn’t share it with the world, despite an obligation to share it within 24hr.
China closed the lab that had sequenced the COVID genome by January 5, and suppressed that they had sequenced it until January 11, when Doctor Zhang announced it online himself.
The official Jan 14 WHO announcement that Wuhan Virus was not spread person to person was directly conflicting with censored reports from Wuhan. Travel restrictions that might have helped curb the international spread were denounced by the WHO, and there was no official recognition of a pandemic until 114 countries and over 100,000 people were affected. By this point, there had already been at least 4000 official fatalities.
If WHO is a de facto puppet of the Chinese Communist Party, we have no reason to see it as credible or even useful, and should not send any money that way.
They will need to decide were their loyalties are, and choose accordingly.
Trump said ‘America First’.
And if WHO’s interests are aligned AGAINST ours, and not with them, we have no reason to be participating in it.
