Trump Takes Aim at WHO in Midst of Pandemic
Friday, 10 April 2020 19:55 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

Thursday marks 100 days since China notified the World Health Organization that it was dealing with cases of what would later be identified as COVID-19, the deadly virus that has spread to nearly every corner of the world.

U.S. President Donald Trump has accused WHO of being too biased toward China and said that the U.N. health agency should have warned of the approaching crisis months earlier.

"They called it wrong," Trump said Tuesday of the WHO.

On Wednesday, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, standing beside Trump, said the organization "hasn't accomplished what it was intended to deliver," and that the United States is "re-evaluating our funding," echoing a threat Trump made earlier in the week.

One of the Trump administration's complaints is the blocking of Taiwan's membership in the WHO.

The strain between the WHO leadership and Taiwan was evident at a news conference on Wednesday, when WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus said he was the subject of a campaign of racist slurs aimed at him from the island state.
