Strongly admonishing the Chinese government, President Trump announced Friday that the USA was "terminating" its relationship with the World Health Organization and threatened to revoke longstanding financial benefits afforded to Hong Kong, to sanction Beijing for its crackdown on the semiautonomous territory.
Speaking in the Rose Garden at the White House, and amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the United States president said he wants to redirect funds into other organisations, as part of an anti- China address.
In a four-page letter detailing his grievances with the organization, Trump called on the WHO to "demonstrate independence from China", renewing his complaint that led him in April to temporarily suspend US funding.
Trump's comments came the same week that COVID-19 deaths in the USA topped 100,000 - the most in the world.

He had previously suspended funding to the World Health Organization, complaining that it had been complicit with China in concealing the extent of risks posed by the coronavirus pandemic, which originated in Hubei province.
The US has contributed about 20 per cent of the WHO's overall budget over the past two years.
