Trump Tells WHO That U.S. Funding Will End if Changes Aren't Made
TUESDAY, May 19, 2020 (HealthDay News) -- President Donald Trump told the World Health Organization on Monday that the United States would permanently end all funding to the organization if it did not agree to make significant changes in the next 30 days.
The threat was delivered in a letter that Trump posted on his Twitter account. Sent to WHO Director General Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, the letter also warned that the United States would reconsider its membership in the WHO because it was soft on China and "so clearly not serving America's interests."
"It is clear the repeated missteps by you and your organization in responding to the pandemic have been extremely costly for the world," the four-page letter said.
