Trump: WHO is 'China-centric'

United States President Donald Trump accused the World Health Organization (WHO) of being "China-centric," saying in addition that Washington will reconsider funding for the agency.

"The W.H.O. really blew it. For some reason, funded largely by the United States, yet very China centric. We will be giving that a good look. Fortunately I rejected their advice on keeping our borders open to China early on. Why did they give us such a faulty recommendation?", the American president wrote on Twitter on Tuesday.

Trump issued a travel ban for all non-US citizens coming from China on January 31, a day after the WHO had announced a "global health emergency" over coronavirus, but clarified that it would not recommend restrictions on trade and travel at the time, later calling such measures "counterproductive."
