US President Donald trump intends to make a decision on further funding for the World Health Organization (WHO) in the near future. He said this on Friday, may 8, on the Fox News channel.
“As you know, we pay them almost $ 500 million a year. I will make a statement on this matter soon, ” he said.
According to the head of the White house, the organization has become a “puppet of China” and recalled that the US has suspended funding for who.
Earlier, on May 7, US Secretary of state Mike Pompeo said that Washington can offer an alternative to who, because it allegedly failed to cope with the spread of COVID-19.
On April 14, Donald trump announced that Washington is stopping funding the organization, because it allegedly made mistakes and hid data on the spread of the coronavirus.
After that, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres said that the US chose the wrong time to stop funding WHO.
