Trump tells World Bank to stop lending to China

US President Donald Trump lashed out at the World Bank on Friday, blaming the international financial institution for lending money to China.

'Why is the World Bank loaning money to China? Can this be possible? China has plenty of money, and if they don't, they create it. STOP!' Trump wrote on Twitter. The President was reiterating a position long held by his administration, including David Malpass when he was a Treasury Department official prior to his election as the current head of the World Bank.
