Trump threatens to cut off WHO funding permanently

Washington: President Donald Trump escalated his threats against the World Health Organisation over its handling of the coronavirus pandemic, saying he would permanently cut US funding if it does not make sweeping reforms.

He said that the international agency must demonstrate “independence from China”, according to a letter, which the president posted on Twitter late Monday American Eastern Standard Time.

“If the World Health Organisation does not commit to major substantive improvements within the next 30 days, I will make my temporary freeze of United States funding to the World Health Organisation permanent and reconsider our membership in the organisation,” Trump wrote in the letter to Director General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus.

In a tweet accompanying a copy of the letter, Trump called it “self-explanatory”.
