On Friday, The President of the United States said he’s terminating the country’s relationship with the World Health Organization, claiming that China has dominance over it. President Trump announced he’s suspending the entry of certain Chinese Nationals and sanctioning their officials who have eroded Hong Kong’s freedom.
President Trump for weeks has expressed frustration with China, blaming the communist country and in part the World Health Organization for the spread of the deadly virus that has left more than 100,000 dead in the United States.

Not long before Trump’s speech, the officer was arrested and charged with third-degree murder.
He tweeted in the early morning Friday that “when the looting starts, the shooting starts,” a phrase with a very serious racial and historical undertones.
Twitter labeled that tweet with a note: “This Tweet violated the Twitter Rules about glorifying violence. However, Twitter has determined that it may be in the public’s interest for the Tweet to remain accessible.”
Trump in a later tweet clarified on Friday, writing “looting leads to shooting” and referencing a deadly shooting in Minneapolis on Wednesday night and the seven people shot at a separate demonstration in Kentucky, Louisville, over the death of Breonna Taylor. “It’s very simple, nobody should have any problem with this other than the haters, and those looking to cause trouble on social media,” Mr. Trump concluded.
