Trump Sent A Notification To Congress About The Official Withdrawal Of The United States From The WHO

US President Donald Trump has officially notified Congress of the country's withdrawal from the World Health Organization (WHO).

"Congress has received notification that the US President has officially withdrawn the country from the WHO amid the pandemic," Senator Bob Menendez tweeted on Tuesday.

In mid-April, Trump decided to temporarily suspend the United States' participation in WHO, pending an investigation into the organization's failed response to the COVID-19 outbreak.

At the end of May, the American leader announced that the WHO refused to carry out the necessary reforms, and therefore Washington severs all ties with this organization.
