More officials are speaking out against Trump's decision to sever the US's relationship with the World Health Organization.
Former presidential candidate and Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren has tweeted that the decision "alienates our allies, undermines our global leadership, and threatens the health of the American people".
Tom Inglesby, director of the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security in the US, said it was a "very bad, consequential" decision, comparing it to eliminating the weather service during a hurricane.
Globally, Germany's Health Minister Jens Spahn tweeted his criticism this morning, calling it a "disappointing" setback.
The UK hasn't gone as far as Spahn, but a spokesperson from the Department of Health and Social Care confirmed they had "no plans to withdraw our funding" - see our post below.
Other G7 nations, including France, have so far been silent.
The WHO itself also has yet to respond to the announcement.
