United States formally submits withdrawal from the World Health Organization

The Trump administration has formally notified the United Nations of its withdrawal from the World Health Organization, even though the pullout won’t just take effect until next year, meaning maybe it’s rescinded under a new administration or if circumstances change. The withdrawal notification makes good on President Donald Trump’s vow in late May to terminate U.S. participation in the WHO, which he has harshly criticized for the response to the coronavirus pandemic and accused of bowing to Chinese influence. Former Vice President Joe Biden has said he supports the WHO and Democrats suggested however reverse the decision if he defeats Trump in November.
