US President Donald Trump criticizes the World Health Organization (WHO) over its handling of the coronavirus pandemic.
“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. Fortunately, I rejected their advice on keeping our borders open to China early on. Why did they give us such a faulty recommendation?” Trump tweeted Tuesday morning, suggesting he would review the U.S. funding for the WHO, a body of the United Nations responsible for international public health.
Trump signaled he may put a “very powerful hold” on funding to the WHO as he lashed out at the United Nations specialized agency and accused it of “being very China-centric” amid the coronavirus pandemic.
