House Democrats are using language which compares impeachment to President Trump’s order to halt funding to the World Health Organization (WHO).
The President announced earlier this week that his administration would stop funding until a review could be conducted into whether the WHO was responsible for “severely mismanaging and covering up” spread of the coronavirus pandemic.
“So much death has been caused by their mistakes,” he said at a press briefing.
Democrats Side Against America
To nobody’s surprise, Democrats have all lined up in unison behind the WHO and against America. They have suggested President Trump lacks the authority to cut funding already approved by Congress.
The House Appropriations Committee on Wednesday tweeted that Trump’s actions were “illegal.”
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) also claimed Trump’s move to defund the group was “dangerous,” “illegal,” and will be “swiftly challenged.”
We’re starting to get an idea of what she meant.

The WHO is an organization that helped spread Chinese disinformation on the coronavirus and urged nations to keep their borders open during the pandemic.
Countless lives were lost either to their corruption or coordination with the Chinese Communist Party.
That said, Pelosi’s threat to ‘swiftly challenge’ Trump’s move to halt funding to such a group apparently equates to yet another push for impeachment.
“In a desperate attempt to deflect blame, President Trump is violating the same spending laws that brought about his impeachment,” said Evan Hollander, House Appropriations Committee spokesman.
“The President does not have the unilateral authority to withhold the United States’ assessed contribution to the World Health Organization.”
Nancy Pelosi just said President Trump’s decision to halt funding for the WHO is “illegal” and will be “swiftly challenged”
If she wants to impeach Trump for withholding funding to WHO—she should be expelled for withholding funding to American small businesses

They Care More About China
Congressional Democrats never opposed Barack Obama on the numerous occasions that he put conditions on aid to other nations or organizations when they weren’t serving the best interests of the United States.
The most famous of which, naturally, was when the Obama administration, according to former Vice President Joe Biden’s own words, threatened to withhold aid to Ukraine until they fired a prosecutor investigating a company involved with his son, Hunter.
Rep. Chip Roy of Texas said that Democrats seem to care more about protecting China and the World Health Organization than they do about the well-being of our own country.
Roy suggested America should “encourage the WHO to step up and get it right,” as opposed to siding with “the communists in China” and “against the interests of the United States.”
But then, they wouldn’t be modern-day Democrats if they sided with America.
