Despite Covid-19 Pandemic, Trump Withdraws US From WHO

The President of the United States Donald Trump has officially excluded the United States from the World Health Organization.

His reasons for the withdrawal can be traced as far back as march when he started a probe into the world health organization and accused its director general of withholding the severity of the virus and the fact that it is communicable.

Trump also planned to reduce the US payment to $40 million like china paid unlike the $400 million it paid yearly. Although, the US is still recording high and increasing rate of corona virus patients, its president still chooses to backed out of the World Health Organization.

Is this a smart move for the United States? What if a vaccine to cure the virus becomes available and only countries under WHO have access to it first, what would be their fate?
