President Trump on Thursday accused Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden of engaging in a quid pro quo hours after his own acting chief of staff appeared to admit that the Trump administration had done the same with Ukraine before seeking to walk back his remarks.
The president zeroed in on Joe and Hunter Biden during his campaign rally in Dallas in a continuation of his effort to paint the family as corrupt.
“Look at the terrible foreign corruption of the Bidens. I hate to talk about him. You know why? I don’t think he’s got a chance,” Trump told the crowd.
Trump said that the former vice president was in charge of Ukraine policy for the Obama administration and sought the firing of the then-Ukrainian prosecutor general while his son, Hunter “was paid massive sums of money [to] buy a Ukrainian energy company.”
