President Donald Trumps son, Eric Trump, said former Vice President Joe Biden and Bidens son Hunter Biden used Bidens top political position to enrich themselves.
“Heres reality, theyre fighting a president that has the greatest economy this country has ever seen, the strongest military that we have. Theyre fighting a patriotism that exists in this country that hasnt existed in a very, very long time.”
Trump said during an appearance on Fox Newss “Justice” over the weekend.
“Theyre fighting all of this, yet they have a candidate that lies about being Cherokee Indian when shes one one-thousandth and twenty-fourth Cherokee,” he said, referring to Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.), before talking about Joe Biden.
“You have a guy whose son is embezzling money from everybody and enriching himself off of, you know, his fathers position under–”
“So, then where does Joe Biden get off being so pompous and above it all?” host Jeanine Pirro interjected.
“Well, you know, I think American people are gonna see that. He is pompous and they are above it all. And if I was doing the same thing that that family was doing, Id be in jail,” Eric Trump alleged.
Biden in 2018 bragged during an event that while vice president in 2016, he threatened to withhold $1 billion in aid from Ukraine unless the countrys leadership ousted top prosecutor Viktor Shokin, who was probing the energy company Burisma. Hunter Biden sat on the board of Burisma from 2014 to 2019. He also joined a Chinese firm while his father was still in office.
Shokin was ousted, he said, because he didnt want to close the investigation into Burisma. Then-President Petro Poroshenko cited Joe Biden when he asked Shokin to resign, the former prosecutor said.
“Why is it that every family goes into politics and enriches themselves?” Eric Trump said during the Fox appearance.
He said that his family “stopped at doing deals” when his father became president.
“We stopped doing deals when he went into politics. Guess what, all these kids, they started doing deals when their families went into politics and its sickening,” he added.
The talking point has circulated among Trumps campaign in recent days.
