President Trump said he is considering permanently cutting US funding from the World Health Organisation over its response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

In a press conference last night, the US president said that unless WHO committed to “substantive improvements over the next 30 days”, he would make a temporary suspension of US funding permanent.

“They gave us a lot of bad advice, terrible advice,” Trump said of the WHO, threatening to drop funding from $450 million to $40 million.

“They were wrong so much, always on the side of China.”
