Joe Biden Defends Son Over Involvement with Foreign Companies

Former Vice President and 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden continues to defend his son Hunter about his foreign business affairs.

Over the weekend, Hunter spoke out for the first time regarding questions surrounding his foreign business affairs and announced he is leaving the board of a private equity company that received a significant investment from China.

Hunter’s lawyer released a statement about his decision to exit from the investment company and he also promised not to work for a foreign company if his father was elected president.

In response, Joe Biden defended himself and his son, saying, “No one has asserted my son did a single thing wrong. No one has asserted that I’ve done anything wrong except the lying president.”

Biden also called for the impeachment of President Trump over the weekend, saying, “I’m the reason there is impeachment going on.”

Prior to Hunter’s statement, President Trump called him out in a Tweet asking, “Where is Hunter Biden?” and questioned where are the media reports questioning Hunter’s foreign business affairs.

President Trump continued to criticize Hunter after the release of his statement.

Questions surrounding Hunter’s foreign business deals will not go away and it has the Biden campaign doing damage control.

The Biden campaign was slow to react and now they are paying the price for not promptly acting to address the issue.
