Trump Gives W.H.O. 30 Days For ‘Major Improvements’ or Face US Withdrawal

US President Donald Trump has shared in his Twitter account the “self-explanatory” letter sent to Dr. Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, who is the head of the World Health Organisation, in which he threatened to make the funding freeze permanent and “reconsider our membership” in the organisation if the agency “does not commit to major substantive improvements within the next 30 days.”

In April, US President Donald Trump ordered that the funding of the World Health Organisation by the United States be halted, following his administration accusations against the agency of being “China-centric” and downplaying the danger of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Trump lambasted the WHO for “ignoring the credible reports of the virus spreading in Wuhan” that “conflicted directly” with the Chinese government. He also accused the agency of “making claims” regarding the coronavirus “that were grossly inaccurate or misleading” and giving in to the alleged “pressure” applied by Chinese President Xi Jingping to not immediately proclaim the coronavirus outbreak an emergency.
