President Donald Trump said Friday he was breaking off US ties with the World Health Organization, which he says failed to do enough to combat the initial spread of the novel coronavirus.

“We have detailed refUorms that they must make and engage with them directly, but they have refused to act,” Trump said Friday at the White House. “We will be today terminating our relationship with the WHO.”

The president for weeks has expressed frustration with China, blaming the communist country and in part the W.H.O. for the spread of the deadly virus that has left more than 100,000 dead in the U.S.

“Our actions will be strong, our actions will be meaningful,” Mr. Trump said. 

The Republican leader said the US would be “redirecting those funds to other worldwide and deserving urgent global public health needs.”
