Donald Trump announced on Friday that the United States will be “terminating” its relationship with the World Health Organization.
According to Trump, he decided to leave the WHO because he claims the organization is controlled by China.
Trump says China "broke their word to the world on ensuring the autonomy of Hong Kong." Says "the Chinese government has continually violated its promises to us and so many other nations." Blames China for covering up "Wuhan virus." (He previously praised their "transparency.")
