U.S. calls China’s $2 billion WHO pledge a ‘token,’ says it must pay more

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The United States on Monday said China must pay more than the $2 billion it committed to the World Health Organization, calling the pledge a token to distract from what the Trump administration claims was Beijing’s failure to properly alert the world to the coronavirus outbreak.

China’s commitment “is a token to distract from calls from a growing number of nations demanding accountability for the Chinese government’s failure to meet its obligations … to tell the truth and warn the world of what was coming,” White House National Security Council spokesman John Ullyot said in a statement.
