Trump halts WHO funding: US President Donald Trump has said that he has instructed his administration to close the funds of the World Health Organization (WHO).
Trump said that the WHO has also failed to do necessary work to prevent the spread of the Coronavirus. Trump alleged that when the coronavirus infection started from China, this UN organization was unable to handle it and kept hiding the real picture.

Trump said the WHO’s accountability should be fixed. Earlier, Trump had given the WHO a Chinese status.
The Coronavirus badly hits America. So far, more than 25 thousand people have lost their lives, and 592,743 people are infected. President Trump has been criticized that he did not do well to stop the epidemic within the country.
America finances the WHO the most. Last year, the US gave $ 400 million fund to the WHO. Speaking in the Rose Garden of the White House, Trump said that he is working to make everything healthy in the country. Trump said, “I will talk to all 50 governors soon.” All the governors of all states will be given the responsibility to work on the plan.
Trump said that the role of WHO in preventing the infection of the Coronavirus would be reviewed.
When the coronavirus epidemic spread throughout the world, Trump decided to stop the WHO fund. Earlier, Trump had also questioned the funds being given to the United Nations and also separated the US from the Global Climate Agreement. Trump has also targeted the World Trade Organization.
Trump said that the US gives 400 to 500 million dollars to the WHO every year, while China gives only 40 million dollars. The US President said that if the WHO had proceeded to China and seen the situation on the ground and had told about the transparency there, it would never have been as terrible as it is now.
