Fact check: WHO
Trump has accused the WHO of “severely mismanaging and covering up” the coronavirus crisis.
Funding will be cut off to the World Health Organization while the US conducts a “review” investigation, Trump said.
“Today I’m instructing my administration to stop funding of the WHO while a review is conducted to assess the WHO’s role in severely mismanaging and covering up the spread of the Coronavirus,” the president said.
