US President Donald Trump has attacked the World Health Organization (WHO) as a “puppet of China” as the United States continues to put pressure on the UN agency over the coronavirus pandemic.
Trump attacked the United Nations health body and confirmed he is considering slashing or canceling US support.
“They’re a puppet of China, they’re China-centric to put it nicer,” he said at the White House.
Trump said the United States pays around $450 million annually to the World Health Organization, the largest contribution of any country. Plans are being crafted to slash this because “we’re not treated right”, he said.
