Trump Threatens to Permanently Stop WHO Funding

US President Donald Trump has threatened to freeze World Health Organization (WHO) funding on Monday unless “substantial improvements” are made within the next 30 days.

 

Washington suspended WHO funding in mid-April because it believes China has too much influence within the organization.

The WHO lost its largest lender by the decision. The US accounted for $ 400 million to $ 500 million annually.

On Monday, Trump tweeted footage of a letter he sent to WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

In it, he informed the Director-General that “if the World Health Organization does not commit to substantial improvements within 30 days, I will make my temporary freeze of funding from the United States to the World Health Organization permanent.

And reconsider our membership in the organization.”
