(Sandhya Jha, Intern Journalist): US President Donald Trump has written a letter to the World Health Organization (WHO) warning. He has warned WHO to improve the organization within 30 days. If not done so then the US will permanently freeze the funding being given to the organization, and the US will also reconsider being a member of the organization.
Trump has previously criticized the WHO in the White House as well. He said, “They (WHO) are the puppets of China.” It would be better to say that they are China-centric. The US gives $ 450 million (about Rs 3500 crore) annually to the WHO. Plans are being made to reduce it because we are not treated well.
