19.05.2020

The President of the United States, Donald Trump, presented an ultimatum to WHO and gave a month to fulfill the conditions of the United States. Otherwise, America will stop funding the organization.

US President Donald Trump switched to the language of blackmail and threats in a conversation with the World Health Organization (WHO). The head of the White House presented the organization with an unambiguous ultimatum, threatening to deprive it of American money.

To fulfill the requirements of the States, Trump gave WHO a month - 30 days. Otherwise, the United States will stop financing the organization, and they will think about membership in WHO.

The President of the United States sent the corresponding letter with ultimatum requirements to the director of the organization, Tedros Adanom Gebreisus, and published it on his Twitter.

Shortly before this, the head of the White House literally criticized the UN health authority, calling it the "puppet of China." Trump’s bold statement came just hours after the United States accused WHO of allegedly letting COVID-19 “get out of control at the cost of many lives.”

In particular, US Health Secretary Alex Hazard said that WHO, they say, could not get the information that the world needs.
