President Trump is leaning toward preserving his total funding cut for the World Health Organization after being on the brink of announcing he’d restore partial funding, according to three sources familiar with the situation.
A fourth source, a senior administration official, cautioned that the decision-making was fluid and was still subject to change.
Behind the scenes: Trump spent his weekend at Camp David with some of his closest Republican allies in the House of Representatives. A source familiar with the private discussions said that House members at Camp David pressed Trump “to not give a dime to WHO.”
NEW … PRESIDENT TRUMP is going to Camp David this weekend. Here’s who is going with him: KEVIN MCCARTHY, MARK MEADOWS and GOP Reps. DAN CRENSHAW (Texas), MATT GAETZ (Fla.), DEVIN NUNES (Calif.), JIM JORDAN (Ohio), ELISE STEFANIK (N.Y.) and LEE ZELDIN (N.Y.).
