Oxfam: Trump’s WHO funding cuts make the whole world vulnerable

President Trump said Tuesday he will stop U.S. funding for the World Health Organization, an announcement that follows weeks of increased criticism of the United Nations public health body. Paul O’Brien, who leads Oxfam’s coronavirus response, says Trump is trying desperately to shift blame for his own disastrous handling of the viral outbreak. But cutting funding to the WHO will hurt those in developing countries the most, O’Brien says, noting that 80% of workers on the planet have no health insurance. “We have an economic crisis that is potentially coming along with the health crisis that is going to be profoundly harmful for many people,” he says.
