Joe Biden said that his family members, including Hunter Biden, would not engage in any foreign business if he wins the presidency in 2020.
That’s not because Hunter did anything wrong as a board member of the Ukrainian gas company Burisma, the former vice president said, but due to questionable business activities of President Trump’s children.
“They will not be engaged in any foreign business because of what’s happened in this administration,” Biden said of Hunter Biden and brother James Biden, in an Axios on HBO interview that aired Sunday. “No one’s going to be seeking patents for things from China. No one’s going to be engaged in that kind of thing.”
Hunter Biden was on the board of Burisma while Joe Biden, 77, worked on Ukrainian policy while vice president. House Democrats launched impeachment proceedings against Trump after revelations of a phone call in which Trump asked the Ukrainian president to investigate the Bidens, which Democrats argue Trump did for personal political interests rather than legitimate policy reasons.
