Coronavirus outbreak: Trump cuts funding to WHO, orders investigation

• Global News

During a daily briefing with the coronavirus task force on Tuesday, U.S. President Trump announced that his administration will be cutting all funding to the World Health Organization (WHO) as the U.S. government conducts an investigation that is expected to take 60 to 90 days.

The U.S. president claimed the WHO failed to disclose or respond to what he called "credible" information in December that suggested the virus could be spread through human-to-human transmission.

Trump also blamed previous administrations, saying the funding should have been cut a long time ago and that they'll be looking at all the mistakes that have been made.

Trump also called the World Health Organization, very "China-centric."
