Hunter Biden Vouches for His 'Honest' Father at DNC Nominating Convention
Joe Biden's controversial son speaks at Democratic National Convention
Joe Biden's embattled son, Hunter Biden, spoke at the Democratic National Convention on Thursday night to vouch for his "honest" father.
Hunter, who is himself at the center of corruption allegations over his business dealings in Ukraine and China, praised his dad’s integrity while introducing the former vice president at the DNC nominating convention.
“We want to tell you what kind of president our dad will be,” Hunter and his younger sister, Ashley Biden, told the convention.
"He will be tough and honest.”
"He’ll tell you the truth when you don’t want to hear it,” Ashley added.
Hunter, 50, hailed his father as “honest” and someone who “will never let you down.”
They listed off his qualities without directly mentioning President Trump, according to the New York Post.
During Trump's impeachment, Hunter Biden's role on the board of Ukrainian energy firm Burisma Holdings, while his father led the Obama administration’s Ukraine policy, became central to the case.
Hunter reportedly earned $50,000 a month while working for Burisma, despite having no experience in the field, and Joe Biden forced Ukraine to fire their top prosecutor who was investigating the firm for corruption at the time.
Trump often asks “Where’s Biden?” and accuses him of other shady dealings linked to his father’s official position, including accepting investment from China after flying there aboard Air Force Two.
Hunter Biden is a recovering drug abuser and a father of four, including a child whose fatherhood was recently determined in a court case after he challenged it.
He briefly dated his late brother Beau Biden’s widow.
“He will make your grandkids feel that what they’ve got to say matters,” Hunter said in promotion of his father.
“The strongest shoulder you can ever lean on,” he said.
“He’ll be the worst enemy any bully ever saw,” Ashley Biden said.
Trump suggested that Hunter traveled with his father on Air Force Two in 2013 so he could improperly secure $1.5 billion in funding from the Bank of China for the private equity firm BHR Partners, according to The Daily Caller.
Hunter maintains his stake in BHR despite a pledge in December from his father that none of his family members would “be engaged in foreign business” if Biden is elected president in November.
Biden’s campaign has not responded to multiple inquiries from the Daily Caller asking if he will call on his son to relinquish his stake in the Chinese firm.
