I also seem to recall Trump withdraw the US from WHO after lashing out at WHO is working on an agenda with the Chinese Communist party.

So it is my belief that covid was intentionally lab leaked and blown out of proportion by WHO to cause panic in the west and ruin the economy of the west
Then why didn't President Trump maintain the moratorium on gain of function research?

I read that he is not longer reliable in front of the cameras and the reason why we may no see this piece of human excrement we got for president in live TV again.
The White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) yesterday released recommendations for federal departments to use when reviewing and conducting oversight of research involving potential pandemic pathogens (PPP). The recommendations, when adopted, also spell out the review process used to lift the current moratorium on federally funded controversial gain-of-function (GOF) research projects.
In October 2014 after the Obama administration announced the research pause, it asked the National Science Advisory Board for Biosecurity (NSABB) to come up with recommendations to help federal officials weigh funding decisions. The NSABB deliberations also included the commissioning of a more than 1,000-page risk assessment and an ethics white paper. It handed off its finalized recommendations in June 2016 for the OSTP and the National Security Council to consider.
The final OSTP recommendations include a prefunding review for certain research proposals based on eight specified principles, an assessment of risks and benefits, and risk mitigation plans based on the pathogen's risk, all of which should be reported to the OSTP director.
