(International: Al Furat News) The President of the United States, Donald Trump, threatened to suspend the payment of the American financial contribution to the World Health Organization, denouncing the way the international organization managed the Covid-19 epidemic.
"We will suspend (the payment of) funds to the World Health Organization (WHO)," Trump said during his daily press conference at the White House on developments in the epidemic in the United States.
However, a few minutes later, the US President retracted this announcement by saying that he had not decided to suspend the payment, but only intended to study this possibility.
"I am not saying that I will, but rather we will study this possibility," he said.
He added that the World Health Organization "seems very biased towards China. This is not right."
The United States is the largest contributor to the World Health Organization.
Trump launched a sharp attack on the United Nations on Tuesday morning, writing in a tweet on Twitter that "WHO has really failed, oddly enough, it is funded largely by the United States, but its focus is on China."
The American President's attack on the United Nations came at a time when the death toll of Covid-19 in the United States exceeded 11,000, while the number of people infected with the epidemic in this country reached more than 385,000. is over
