Trump Administration Moves to Formally Pull U.S. out of WHO  

08 Jul 2020 The Killid Group

U.S. President Donald Trump in a formal move pulled out his country from the World Health Organization (WHO), said a Senate member on Twitter. “Congress received notification that POTUS officially withdrew the U.S. from the @WHO in the midst of a pandemic,” Senator Bob Menendez took to Twitter. U.S. President Donald Trump announced earlier on May 30 that the United States will withdraw from the World Health Organization over the agency’s response to the coronavirus pandemic.

Trump threatened that he was permanently cutting off U.S. funding to the UN’s health agency, saying he will make his “temporary freeze of United States funding to the World Health Organization permanent and reconsider” the country’s “membership in the organization.” The UN and Congress are now notified of his intentions, but a UN’s spokesman said the process could take effect at least a year. Stéphane Dujarric, spokesman for the UN secretary-general, confirmed the US had notified it of its withdrawal, effective as of 6 July 2021.
