US President Donald Trump Thursday said the World Health Organization should be “ashamed of” itself, as he likened it to a public relations agency for China.
The Trump Administration has launched a probe into the role of the WHO on coronavirus, and has temporarily suspended the US’s financial assistance to it.

“I think that the World Health Organization should be ashamed of themselves because they are like the public relations agency for China,” Trump told reporters in the East Room of the White House.

The United States, he reiterated, pays the WHO almost USD500 million a year and China pays them USD38 million a year. “Whether it’s a lot more, it doesn’t matter. They shouldn’t be making excuses when people make horrible mistakes, especially mistakes that are causing hundreds of thousands of people around the world to die.”

“I think the World Health Organization should be ashamed of themselves,” said the President.
