Washington, May 19: US President Donald Trump wrote to Tedros Ghebreyesus, WHO Director-General over the coronavirus situation. Taking to Twitter he shared a letter to the WHO and said it is 'self-explanatory'. Trump warned that if WHO doesn't commit to major substantive improvements within the next 30 days, he will make the temporary freeze of US funding to WHO permanent and would also consider the country's membership in the organisation.
In the 4-paged letter, Donald Trump wrote, "On April 14, 2020, I suspended United States contributions to the World Health Organisation pending an investigation by my Administration of the organisation's failed response to the COVID-19 outbreak. This review has confirmed many of the serious concerns I raised last month and identified others that the World Health Organisation should have addressed, especially the World Health Organisation's alarming lack of independence from the People's Republic of China."

He further said that he cannot allow American taxpayers dollars to continue to finance and organisation that in its current state, is so clearly not serving the American interests.
