President Trump just confirmed a rumor about his potential Democratic opponent, Joe Biden. The former vice president is guilty as charged.
“This is a very dishonest thing that Joe Biden did, and then he said he never spoke to his son,” Trump said, addressing Biden’s inconsistent claims that he never spoke with his son, Hunter, about his dealings with Ukraine.
“Does anybody believe that one?” Trump asked reporters at the White House. “But then he also said long before that he did speak to his son. So he lied again.”
This is a preview of the 2020 presidential election should Biden win his party’s nomination. Trump will not hesitate to call Biden out for his many years as a career politician and the skeletons that might be in his closet.
Here’s what we know: Biden’s son, Hunter, wound up on the board of directors for a Ukrainian energy firm. It is being alleged that Biden strongarmed a Ukrainian prosecutor to keep Hunter from prosecution as a result of his work, which may have been shady.
Biden has talked out of both sides of his mouth, claiming he spoke to his son about his Ukraine dealings, then saying he did not. Trump was more than willing to expose the former vice president’s double-talk.
