The United States will end its relationship with the World Health Organization. US President Donald Trump said on Friday.

Trump heavily came down on the Geneva-based body, which the United States formally joined in 1948, accusing of becoming a puppet of China.  It is another tension amid the ongoing one between Washington and Beijing over the coronavirus outbreak.

“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,” he said.

Earlier Trump last month halted funding for the 194-member organization. He also sent letter to the WHO to commit to reforms.

But they have failed to make the requested and greatly needed reforms,” Trump said on Friday.

“The WHO is the world’s early warning system for infectious diseases,” but it totally failed to nurture the Corona crisis, said US Representative Nita Lowey.
