Secretary of State Mike Pompeo slammed the World Health Organization (WHO) on Tuesday night, saying the international body needs to “do its job” as President Trump moves to halt U.S. funding to the group, APA reports citing the Fox News.

“[W]e need transparency, and we need the World Health Organization to do its job, to perform its primary function, which is to make sure that the world has accurate, timely, effective, real information about what’s going on in the global health space. And they didn’t get that done here,” Pompeo said on Fox News.

The remark came hours after Trump announced that he was halting funding to the WHO amid a review of the United Nations body over claims of mismanagement surrounding the coronavirus outbreak.
