In a surprise move, US President Donald Trump has given the World Health Organization chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus a 30-day deadline to make “major changes” – or the US would permanently cut off funding to the organization.
Putting everything in black and white, he said if the WHO did not “commit to major substantive improvements”, he would “make his temporary freeze of US funding permanent and reconsider our membership”.
In a tweet, Mr. Trump published his full letter to Mr. Ghebreyesus. He also called out the WHO for repeatedly “praising” China, saying the only way forward for it was to “demonstrate independence from China”.
His crisp tweet had a detailed letter shot to WHO DG and accused him of ignoring credible reports about the virus that had emanated from Wuhan .,
