(CNN) — President Trump has not made a final decision on the restoration of funding to the World Health Organization, according to a tweet he sent Saturday morning.

This came in response to a report from Fox News that the administration was going to restore some funding to the WHO.

Fox obtained a five-page draft letter to WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus Friday that says the administration will "agree to pay up to what China pays in assessed contributions" to the WHO. A senior administration official told Fox that the President had agreed to the plan in the letter.

Trump said the plan detailed in the report "is just one of numerous concepts being considered under which we would pay 10% of what we have been paying over many years, matching much lower China payments," adding that all funds to the WHO are still frozen.

Some context: Trump said Thursday that the White House will likely be making an announcement related to the WHO next week, after his administration sought to cast blame on the organization for not acting quick enough to prevent the spread of coronavirus.

In April, Trump announced he was halting funding to the WHO while a review would be conducted.
