PRESIDENT Donald Trump announced on Friday that the United States is cutting ties with the World Health Organization as he laid down the hammer against China, Your Content has learned.

‘We will be today terminating our relationship with the World Health Organization and directing those funds to worldwide and deserving, urgent global public health needs,’ he said during a press conference in the White House Rose Garden.

President Trump said the termination is a result of China not being transparent enough about the ‘Wuhan’ virus, which is what he has called the coronavirus and scolded Beijing’s over reach in Hong Kong.

“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 engage with them directly, but they have refused to act,” Trump said.

President Trump says the group didn’t do enough to push that country to release information about the coroanvirus, which was first detected in Wuhan.

“China’s cover-up of the Wuhan virus allowed the disease to spread all over the world, instigating a global pandemic that has cost more than 100,000 American lives,” he said.

“I am directing my administration to begin the process of eliminating policy exemptions that give Hong Kong different and special treatment,” President Trump continued.

The president has called it ‘China-centric’ and complained they ‘missed the call’ when it came to the coronavirus.
