Washington DC: In a major move post the stopping of funding to the World Health Organisation (WHO), United States President Donald Trump has announced that US will cut all ties with the WHO.

Speaking at a press conference in the White Rose Garden, Trump said, “China has total control over the World Health Organization despite only paying USD 40 million per year compared to what the United States has been paying, which is approximately USD 450 million a year.”

“The world needs answers from China on the virus. We must have transparency. Why is it that China shut off infected people from Wuhan to all other parts of China?” he added. “It didn’t go to Beijing, it went nowhere else, but they allowed them to freely travel throughout the world, including Europe and the United States,” Trump expressed.

The US President further elaborated that the WHO “failed to make the requested greatly needed reform” and the U.S. “will be today terminating our relationship with the World Health Organization and redirecting those funds to other worldwide and deserving urgent global public health needs.
