Refugees International ‘Mourns Lives Lost’ by Trump WHO Decision

Please see below statement from Refugees International President Eric Schwartz on United States President Donald Trump’s decision to “terminate” the U.S. relationship with the World Health Organization (WHO):

“I condemn this decision, which is among a cascade of breathtakingly foolish, intemperate, and reckless actions on public health made by the president of the United States. We mourn the lives lost by this irresponsible decision.”
