Democrats Float Impeachment After Trump Over Defunds World Health Organization

Democrats are continuing their impeachment pipe dream, this time in response to President Donald Trump's decision to defund the communist China backed World Health Organization after they completely screwed up the handling of the coronavirus.
Check out what Breitbart reported:
The Democrat lawmakers argued that Trump lacks the authority to halt congressionally-approved funding for the W.H.O., a component of the United Nations.
Trump has said he wants to pull funding from the W.H.O. because of the organization’s role in “mismanaging and covering up the spread of the coronavirus” during its early stages, a move that slowed the world’s response.
The president announced on Tuesday that he had ordered a halt on W.H.O. funding while his administration reviews the organization’s response to the coronavirus, described as lackluster by some administration officials.
Democratic House Appropriations Committee spokesman Evan Hollander spoke out on Wednesday saying, "In a desperate attempt to deflect blame, President Trump is violating the same spending laws that brought about his impeachment. The president does not have the unilateral authority to withhold the United States’ assessed contribution to the World Health Organization."
The United States spends the most money funding the World Health Organization however it appears that China has control over them considering the WHO is doing everything in their power to defend the communist nation despite their part in the coronavirus.
Check out what CNBC reported:
House Democrats argued that suspending funding would hamper the global response to the disease ripping across the globe. They also contended he cannot withdraw money already appropriated by Congress under its constitutional authority — suggesting a court fight over Trump’s power looms if he pulls funding.
The [Democrat] party also raised the specter of the White House’s decision to withhold congressionally-approved military aid to Ukraine last year as Trump urged the country to investigate his political rival, apparent Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. The action led to the House impeaching Trump. The Senate acquitted him in February.
Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi who is currently enjoying her vacation in her multi-million dollar home also spoke out against the President.
"This is another case, as I have said, of the president’s ineffective response, that ‘a weak person, a poor leader, takes no responsibility. A weak person blames others.’ This decision is dangerous, illegal, and will be swiftly challenged," she whined.
