Former President Trump called out Hunter Biden and claimed that the hundred thousand dollar art sales that Biden has made are “bribes.”
Hunter Biden, who has been at the center of multiple ethics scandals, suddenly decided to get into selling art. Now he is selling amateur art for huge sums of money, and the Biden administration insists that nothing is wrong.
Trump made his accusations during a speech in Arizona on Saturday at a Turning Point Action event. Trump said, “What about Hunter Biden getting a half a million dollars per painting, and he never painted before? Could you imagine if my kids did that?”
If Donald Trump Jr. was selling amateur art for huge sums of money to anonymous donors, the left would be apoplectic. Hunter Biden’s art has no inherent value, but the people it is tied to do have value.
Trump continued saying, “Hunter Biden’s getting $500,000. It’s a bribe. It’s disgraceful, and the fake news media is talking about it like it’s okay, but we should have transparency. It’s unbelievable.”
Hunter Biden is being paid huge sums of money for his access to the White House, not his skill as a painter. Republicans would be wise to press for an investigation into the Biden administration over this issue. If Republicans retake power in the midterms, evidence that the Biden family enriched themselves would be useful in a hypothetical impeachment battle.
