President Trump says he is halting funding to the World Health Organization (WHO) while a review is conducted on its handling of COVID-19. U-S Senator Tina Smith says that’s a bad move.

“While the entire world should be working together to stem the tide of this pandemic, the president is pulling, attempting to pull the rug out from under the world health organization.”

Trump says the review will cover the WHO’s role in “severely mismanaging and covering up the spread of coronavirus.” Trump blames the organization for being too closely aligned with China and for minimizing the early threat of the disease.
