Trump announces cutoff of new funding for the World Health Organization over pandemic response

President
Trump announced Tuesday that he will suspend payments to the World
Health Organization in response to the United Nations agency’s handling
of the coronavirus
pandemic, as the organization is in the midst of combating a global
outbreak that has killed thousands and crippled world economies. Trump’s
announcement was expected, as he seeks to deflect blame for his early
dismissal of the virus as a threat to Americans and the U.S. economy.
