During Wednesday coronavirus press briefing, Donald Trump was asked why he chose to defund the World Health Organization (WHO).
In response, Trump went on a rant attacking China and calling the United States a “developing nation.”
“We’re a developing nation too in my book,” Trump said in the White House Rose Garden. “We’re developing too.”
Trump complains that the U.S. gets treated unfairly by international organization like WHO.
"We're a developing nation too in my book," he says in the White House Rose Garden. "We're developing too."

The U.S. is the wealthiest nation on Earth. That is the exact opposite of what a developing nation is.
