GOP Senators Slam Biden’s WHO Collaboration Plan, Cite Sovereignty Risks

Senate Republicans are criticizing the Biden administration’s decision to work with the World Health Organization (WHO) on future global health emergencies. The senators are concerned that the administration’s plans would give the WHO increased authority over member states, undermining U.S. sovereignty.

In a letter addressed to President Joe Biden, the senators expressed their disapproval of the administration’s intention to commit to two international agreements during the upcoming World Health Assembly. They argue that the WHO’s failure to effectively respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and its history of negligence, including ignoring early warnings from Taiwan about the virus, demonstrate the organization’s inability to fulfill its responsibilities.

The senators emphasized the need for comprehensive reforms within the WHO before considering any expansions of its authority or new pandemic-related treaties. They urged the Biden administration to reconsider its support for these initiatives and prioritize the protection of U.S. interests and sovereignty.

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, the WHO has been criticized for its mishandling of the crisis and its apparent deference to China. Senate Republicans are urging the administration to exercise caution in partnering with an organization that has failed to fulfill its obligations and has shown disregard for critical warnings from member states such as Taiwan.
