President Trump announced that the United States would be ending its relationship (funding of) with 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 per year. We have detailed the reforms that it must make, and engaged with them directly. But they have refused to act. Because they have failed to make the requested and greatly needed reforms, we will be terminating our relationship with the World Health Organization and redirecting those funds to other worldwide and deserving urgent global public health needs.Pre.

The last thought.
The United States created the WHO and the United Nations and provided the bulk of financing needed for those organizations to function. Over the years, appreciation for the US among other members gradually evaporated, but the appetite for money kept growing. Someone finally has lost patience and decided to cut off the money supply to the WHO. Maybe the UN should get the same treatment? The largest funder The United States contributes more to the UN than the next three nations combined.
