President Donald Trump on Tuesday threatened to slash federal funding for the World Health Organisation, accusing the United Nations specialised agency of being “very China centric” and criticising its early guidance aimed at countering the international spread of the coronavirus.
“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,”
He wrote on Twitter.
“Fortunately I rejected their advice on keeping our borders open to China early on,”
“Why did they give us such a faulty recommendation?”
