On Friday, President Donald Trump announced that the United States would be leaving the World Health Organization (WHO), per CNBC. In a statement, the president made it clear his administration was not pleased with what it perceives to be Chinese control of the WHO.
"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."
Trump would go on to announce that the United States was effectively ending its relationship with the WHO.
"We are today terminating our relationship with the World Health Organization," the president said, effectively following through on his previous promise -- delivered in a written letter earlier this month -- to cut funding to the organization.
