"China has total control over the World Health Organization," Trump said in the White House Rose Garden.

Earlier in May, Trump, who has accused the agency of being "China centric," threatened in a tweeted letter to WHO Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus to permanently halt funding if the WHO did not commit to improvements within 30 days, and to reconsider his country's membership of the agency.
