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
