WHO ‘puppet of China,’ Trump says as he mulls slashing US funding


U.S. President Donald Trump attacked the United Nations health body as a Chinese “puppet” Monday and confirmed he is considering slashing or canceling U.S. support.

“They’re a puppet of China, they’re China-centric to put it nicer,” he said at the White House.

Trump said the United States pays around $450 million annually to the World Health Organization, the largest contribution of any country.

Plans are being crafted to slash this because “we’re not treated right.”
