Donald Trump announced the suspension of his country’s contribution to the WHO | International | News

The President of the United States, Donald Trump, announced on Tuesday that he was suspending his country’s contribution to the World Health Organization (WHO), denouncing his “mismanagement” of the new coronavirus epidemic.

“Today, I order the suspension of funding from the World Health Organization while a study is being conducted to examine the role of WHO in mismanagement and covering up the spread of the coronavirus,” Trump told a news conference.

On April 7, the president had anticipated that they were studying the possibility of making this decision. Trump accused the organization of mismanagement of the coronavirus pandemic and a biased attitude towards Beijing.

The head of the World Health Organization (WHO), Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, defended a day later the management that the entity has carried out in the face of the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19).

U.S. contributions to WHO in 2019 exceeded $ 400 million, nearly double the second-largest donor, according to Washington figures.

The WHO website lists the United States as its top donor, with almost 15% of the budget. (I)
