President Trump has heard and seen enough:

Trump’s decision is sure to spark a triggering from the Democrats.
Trump announces that the U.S. is terminating its relationship with the China-run World Health Organization (WHO) and redirecting its funding for the agency to other public health efforts around the world because of WHO's deliberate lies and propaganda about the Wuhan coronavirus.

Apparently the news wasn’t received well in a certain part of the world:
CNN’s feed in China went to black as President Trump criticized China for its passing of the controversial #HongKong National Security Law as well as China’s handling of the coronavirus outbreak. pic.twitter.com/KOyPBfYKIL

CNN reporting that China cut off the live feed there of Trump's comments re: Hong Kong.

Somebody’s feels have been hurt.
Funny, usually CNN just cuts off the feed to his speeches all on their own.
