President Donald Trump said he wants both Ukraine and China to investigate Joe Biden and his son after failing to answer a similar question on the topic the day before.
Speaking to reporters at the White House, Trump was again asked what he wanted Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to do with regard to the Bidens.
“Well I would think that if they were honest about it, they’d start a major investigation into the Bidens. It’s a very simple answer. They should investigate the Bidens,” Trump said.
“Likewise, China should start an investigation into the Bidens because what happened in China is just about as bad as what happened with Ukraine,” Trump added. “So, I would say that President Zelensky, if it were me, I would recommend that they start an investigation into the Bidens.”
Trump raised both Ukraine and China in his answer, saying he thinks both countries should investigate the former vice president and his son Hunter. There is no evidence of wrongdoing by Joe or Hunter Biden in Ukraine. There’s also no evidence that the former vice president received any money from China and a lawyer for Hunter Biden pushed back on this characterization calling it “a gross misrepresentation.”
