The US President Donald trump said at a briefing on April 7 that it might cut funding to the world health organization, told “Voice of America”.
He accused the organization of “obsession with China” in a pandemic coronavirus.
“They were largely wrong. They seem heavily fixated on China. We intend to suspend payment of the money that we sent to who,” said trump.
When journalists began to ask clarifying questions, the President of the United States “passed back,” said “Voice of America”. Trump said that “intends to explore” on the reduction of financing for who, and stressed that the organization receives from the USA “lot of money”.
Earlier in the day, he criticized the organization on Twitter: “who really blew it. For some strange reason organization, which mainly contain the United States, has focused all the attention on China. We will carefully examine this question. Fortunately, I did not follow their recommendation not to close the border to immigrants from China in the beginning [flash]”.
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?
