Just The News – President Trump said the United States would consider putting a freeze on taxpayer funds going to the World Health Organization (WHO), saying Tuesday that the organization misled Americans about the threat posed by the coronavirus.
“We will look at ending funding,” Trump said at a daily White House coronavirus task force briefing. “We give a majority of the money that they get. They really called it wrong. They called it wrong. They really missed the call. They could have called it months earlier, they would have known. They should have known, and they probably did know. So we’ll be looking into that very carefully, and we’re going to put a hold on money spent to the WHO. We’re going to put a very powerful hold, and we’re going to see. It’s a great thing if it works. But when they call every shot wrong, that’s no good.”
Trump said that the WHO had a track record of being too “China centric.” more
