Donald Trump, president of America has announced that the country has decided on put a hold on the funding it provides to World Health Organization (WHO), claiming that the organization has failed.
In a press conference held on Tuesday, Trump accused WHO of negligence with matters relating to Covid-19 and even claimed that the organization has been hiding information relating to the pandemic.
He further stated that due to this, he has instructed relevant authorities to withhold the funding it provides to the organization until a proper review of the actions is carried out by the county.
“The organization has failed in carrying out its responsibilities. It needs to be held accountable.” He said.
America has been one of the biggest donors of WHO, donating 316 Million Pounds to the organization last year alone, amounting to 15% of the total budget of the organization.
Prior to this America had also accused of WHO being in favour of China amidst the Covid-19 crisis.
