Trump Responds to NY Post Story: 'Bidens Got Rich While Americans Got Robbed’
President weighs in explosive New York Post story
President Donald Trump reacted to evidence showing that former Vice President Joe Biden met with foreign interests represented by his son Hunter Biden.
During a campaign rally in Des Moines, Trump said:
“The Bidens got rich while Americans got robbed."
Trump cited the explosive New York Post story which exposed emails sent from adviser to Ukrainian energy company Burisma, Vadym Pozharskyi, to Hunter Biden, thanking him for helping arrange a meeting with his then-VP father.
As Neon Nettle reported:
A computer repair store reportedly leaked the contents of Hunter's laptop to The Post after taking a copy of the hard drive before it was seized by the FBI.
The newspaper received images and videos of Hunter Biden - many of which were sexually explicit and depicted heavy drug use - along with batches of emails.
Despite having no experience in the energy sector, Hunter Biden sat on the board of Burisma and received between $50,000 and $83,000.
“The Biden family treated the vice presidency as a for-profit corporation flying around the globe collecting millions of dollars from China and Ukraine and Russia and other countries,” Trump said.
Trump also referred to the Senate report revealing that the former Moscow mayor’s wife, Yelena Baturina, wrote a check to Hunter Biden’s firm Rosemont Seneca Thornton, LLC, for $3.5 million in 2014.
“The wife of the mayor of Moscow wrote Hunter a check for 3.5 million dollars in cash while his father gave away the store to Russia, including Crimea – Remember Crimea?” Trump asked.
The President condemned politicians like Biden, who spent 47 years in Washington.
“Politicians like Joe Biden keep bleeding this country dry,” Trump said.
He also cited that Joe Biden’s brother James Biden’s construction firm received a billion-dollar contract to build houses in Iraq.
“Take a look at the whole family. It’s a corrupt family,” Trump said.
“Joe Biden personifies the selfish and corrupt globalist who got rich and powerful at your expense.”
Both Facebook and Twitter buried the New York Post story from appearing on their platforms.
Facebook responded first by limiting the reach of the bombshell story from appearing in its News Feed, massively reducing its ability to be shared.
"While I will intentionally not link to the New York Post, I want be clear that this story is eligible to be fact-checked by Facebook’s third-party fact checking partners,” Facebook spokesman Andy Stone tweeted on Wednesday - hours after the story broke but mysteriously failed to go viral.
