World Health Organisation A 'Puppet Of China': Donald Trump Hints At Fund Cut

Plans are being crafted to slash support to WHO, Donald Trump said (File)

Washington:

President Donald Trump attacked the United Nations health body as a Chinese “puppet” on Monday 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.
