US President Trump says the United States is Terminating its Relationship with WHO

  • US President Donald Trump has threatened to terminate its relationship with the World Health Organization (WHO) as the organization allegedly failed to make the required reforms that were requested by the US. With immediate termination of the relationship with WHO, President Trump has emphasized redirecting the funds (earlier allocated to WHO) to “other worldwide and deserving” organizations for meeting “urgent global public health needs”. Trump also made a scathing attack on China for lack of transparency on COVID-19 and urged that the “world needs answers from China on the virus”. With the US President saying that the “Chinese officials ignored their reporting obligations to the World Health Organization and pressured the World Health Organization to mislead the world when the virus was first discovered by Chinese authorities”, a WHO spokesperson refused any comment at this point.
