Trump didn't give the Ukraine the money, Congress did through the appropriation process. The accusation is that Trump held up the delivery of the money to induce Ukraine to investigate Biden's son.

I'm no Trump fan, but the phone call transcript reads a lot more like usual international relations between a donor and a recipient, plus usual political shenanigans (The Trump Russian collusion investigation had ties to British nationals using some of their official contacts in Britain's civil service and government to gather some of the initial dossier on Trump.) It's scummy, but if you had a magic wand to wave to stop it from happening, there would be a lot of people in Democratic Party politics left without enough to keep them busy as well.
