Former Vice President and 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden angrily responded to a question about a possible conflict of interest in Ukraine while he served in the Obama administration.
The question was based on the fact that Biden’s son Hunter was on the board of directors of a Ukrainian natural gas company when as Vice President Biden was given the responsibility for dealing with the country by former President Obama.
After his time serving as vice president, Biden bragged how he forced Ukraine to fire a prosecutor who was investigating government corruption that might have included the natural gas company.
Watch Biden’s angry response:
WATCH: Joe Biden explodes when a reporter asks a very simple question:
"How was your role as Vice President in charge of policy in Ukraine and your son's job in Ukraine, how is that not a conflict of interest?"
Biden: "I'm not going to respond to that!"

Biden’s full statement denying Ukraine corruption:
President Trump is forcing the media to cover the possible Biden conflict of interest matter by bringing attention to the former vice president’s actions regarding Ukraine.
The Corrupt Media refuses to cover this! https://t.co/JIiOE2a2JF

Biden is angry because his poll numbers are falling and his fundraising is lagging in part due to the possible conflict of interest charge.
