Trump threatened to cut off funding to WHO, saying it seems to ‘err always on the side of China’ even though ‘we fund it


President Donald Trump on Tu Iesday threatened to cut US funding for the World Health Organization after accusing it of pro-China bias.

“We’re going to put a hold on money spent to the WHO. We’re going to put a very powerful hold on it, and we’re going to see,” Trump said at the White House coronavirus task force briefing.

Hours earlier, he attacked the organization in a tweet.

“The W.H.O. really blew it. For some reason, funded largely by the United States, yet very China centric. We will be giving that a good look,” Trump wrote.

“Fortunately I rejected their advice on keeping our borders open to China early on,” he added. “Why did they give us such a faulty recommendation?”Later in the briefing, Trump repeated his accusation that WHO is pro-China but suggested that the funding cut had not been decided>chaosafrica
