Bill Gates criticizes Donald Trump for stopping WHO funding

Bill Gates lashes out at the US President Donald Trump over his decision to halt funding they provide to the World Health Organization. He said that taking this decision during coronavirus pandemic is “as dangerous as it sounds.”

Bill Gates said in a recent tweet, “Halting funding for the World Health Organization during a world health crisis is as dangerous as it sounds.

“Their work is slowing the spread of COVID-19 and if that work is stopped no other organization can replace them. The world needs @WHO now more than ever.”


Bill Gates did not mention Trump’s name in the tweet. He tweet after Trump said he would temporarily stop US’ $400-500 million WHO funding.

Donald Trump had earlier informed the reporters that he was stopping the funding for a couple of weeks, as he claimed WHO’s work role as “severely mismanaging and covering up the spread of the coronavirus.”
