OTTAWA — Canada and its G7 allies confronted U.S. President Donald Trump on Thursday over his decision to cut funding to the World Health Organization, as they stressed solidarity with a key international organization during the COVID-19 crisis. The concerns were raised during the videoconference that the American president hosted for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his fellow G7 leaders. Trump went into the meeting impatient and far more anxious than his G7 counterparts about the need to ease restrictions meant to control the spread of the novel coronavirus.
