US 'terminating relationship' with World Health Organization - Trump
Accusing the World Health Organization of being under ‘total control’ of China, US President Donald Trump has severed all ties to the WHO and said US funding will be redirected to other public health efforts.
“We will today be terminating our relationship with the WHO,” Trump announced on Friday at a press conference in the White House Rose Garden.He said that the WHO was “pressured” by China to mislead the world about the novel coronavirus, hampering the US and global response and resulting in over a million deaths worldwide – including more than 100,000 Americans.
As one example, Trump listed the WHO advice against banning travel earlier this year, and criticism of his decision to halt incoming flights from China. Almost every country eventually stopped air travel, in addition to Chinese-style lockdown tactics intended to slow the spread of the respiratory disease.
