United States is terminating its relationship with the World Health Organization: U.S. President Donald Trump

Donald Trump said that he is ending the relationship between U.S.  and World Health Organization (WHO) over its handling of coronavirus, saying that the WHO has essentially become a Chinese puppet.

Trump stated that the funding for WHO will now be shifted to other global public health organizations. He further issued a series of anti-China rulings including issuing of a proclamation for restricting entry of all Chinese nationals and tightening regulations against Chinese investment in America. Trump also said that the WHO had failed to bring the reforms in the organization which the President had demanded earlier this month. He said Chinese officials "ignored their reporting responsibilities" to the WHO about the virus and forced the WHO to "mislead the world" when the virus was first discovered by Chinese authorities.

“China has total control over the World Health Organization despite only paying $40 million per year compared to what the United States has been paying which is approximately $450 million a year. We have detailed the reforms that it must make and engaged with them directly but they have refused to act,”. Trump said.

Trump has doubted the significance of the United Nations (UN) and disregarded the relevance of multilateralism because it focuses on a "America First" agenda. He has left the U.N. Human Rights Council, the U.N. cultural agency United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), a global climate change agreement and a nuclear deal with Iran.

The World Health Organization is a United Nations agency. It is an international autonomous body that deals with the UN. The WHO and a spokesman for U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres did not respond immediately to a request for comment on the decision by Trump.
