Trump cuts all ties with WHO
US president Donald Trump had announced that the country has cut all ties completely with the World Health Organization with accusations that the organization has misled the world and caused the death of thousands by the way it handled the pandemic.

The US had been the largest contributor to the World Health Organization by donating around 450 million dollars per year. Even though China used to donate 50 million dollars, the country made an additional funding of 2 billion dollars recently.
