Tuesday, Trump said the administration will be “giving a good look” at the funding the US provides to the World Health Organization.

In a tweet, Trump said, “The W.H.O. really blew it. For some reason, funded largely by the United States, yet very China centric. We will be giving that a good look. Fortunately I rejected their advice on keeping our borders open to China early on. Why did they give us such a faulty recommendation?”

Trump recently requested the US cut their contributions to WHO in half.

From Politico:

Trump’s suggestion to reduce WHO’s funding comes after he already proposed in the White House’s budget request for fiscal year 2021 to cut in half the amount Congress allocated the agency in 2020 — from roughly $122 million to less than $58 million.

Among WHO’s 194 member states, the U.S. remains its greatest contributor, accounting for roughly 2.5 percent of the agency’s $4.8 billion budget.

The WHO has drawn international criticism for their deference to China during the Wuhan Coronavirus outbreak.
