Don Trump Jr. just dropped the hammer on Hunter Biden. Trump came out of nowhere and challenged the young, troubled Biden to a debate.
This must happen – imagine the television ratings. Trump said Hunter’s role in Burisma and other jobs will be the main focus of Trump’s re-election campaign and there is nothing Biden or the media can do to stop it.
From The Hill: Trump Jr. said he thinks “a big part” of the attacks the former vice president will face later this year will be about his son Hunter Biden and his business dealings overseas.
“Listen, I think it’s got to be a big part,” he said during “Axios on HBO.” “I was an international business person before my father got into politics. That’s what we did. I’m not going to say I haven’t benefited from my father’s last name, just like Hunter Biden did. I’d be foolish to say that. But I haven’t benefited from my father’s taxpayer-funded office, OK?
“We stopped doing any new international business deals when my father won the presidency. So you know what would be great? I’ll let you host it,” he told VandeHei. “You moderate a debate between Hunter Biden and myself. Come on. Let’s do it.”
“No, no, seriously. We can go full transparency,” he continued. “We show everything, and we can talk about all of the places where I’m supposedly grifting but Hunter Biden isn’t. I would love to do it.”
“As it relates to the grifting, they’re saying we’re profiting off of the presidency. Let’s talk about it,” Trump Jr. added.
VandeHei then shifted the focus back to Trump Jr., asking, “But you profited, don’t you?”
“I don’t know that I’ve profited off of the presidency,” Trump Jr. said.
“You have a bestselling book,” VandeHei continued. “You do paid speeches. Don’t you co-own the Trump Hotel?”
But Trump Jr., who oversees the Trump Organization along with his brother Eric Trump pushed back on VandeHei’s question, saying he has “done paid speeches for over a decade. I do a lot. I don’t even do the international ones anymore.”
“But you make some money off it, right?” VandeHei asked.
“Nothing that I haven’t done before,” Trump Jr. retorted. “And again, if you looked at my tax returns, which maybe we could talk about in this debate.”
“So, you’ll release your tax return?” VandeHei asked. “You would release your tax returns, and he would debate you? You would really debate him?”
“I’d 100 percent debate him,” Trump Jr. said. “Let’s talk about who profited off of whose public service. Happy to do it. Let’s make it happen.”
