President Trump announced earlier this year that he intended to withdraw the United States and the funding that comes from it from the World Health Organization.

On Tuesday the United States officially withdrew from the WHO.

The Washington Examiner tweeted:

The Hill reports:

The White House has officially withdrawn the United States from the World Health Organization (WHO), a senior administration official confirmed Tuesday, breaking ties with a global public health body in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic.

The U.S. withdrawal is effective as of Monday and has been submitted to the United Nations secretary-general, the official said.

Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.), the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Affairs Committee, tweeted that the administration informed Congress of the withdrawal.


The formal notification of withdrawal concludes months of threats from the Trump administration to pull the United States out of the WHO, which is affiliated with the United Nations. President Trump has repeatedly assailed the organization for alleged bias toward China and its slow response to the coronavirus outbreak in Wuhan.

Democrats and health experts have warned this could undercut the global response to the virus arguing that the initial missteps were due to China’s lack of transparency.
