Trump: Biden Makes ‘Crooked Hillary Clinton Look Like an Amateur’
President brands Biden family as a 'criminal enterprise'
President Donald Trump blasted former Vice President Joe Biden and his family as a “criminal enterprise" on Friday.
“The Biden family is a criminal enterprise,” Trump said.
“Frankly, it makes crooked Hillary Clinton look like an amateur.”
Trump highlighted the explosive new stories published in the New York Post, which revealed Hunter Biden pursuing lucrative foreign deals while his father served as vice president.
“Here’s a guy, didn’t have a job, now he’s taking in millions, and plenty of it goes to Joe Biden too, don’t kid yourself,” Trump said.
Photos and emails were released by The New York Post regarding Hunter Biden's proposals from a laptop, which was left abandoned at a Delaware computer repair shop.
Trump also questioned one of Hunter Biden’s partnership proposals, which included ten percent for “the big guy.”
“The guy gets ten percent,” Trump mused.
“I wonder who ‘the guy’ is?”
The president expressed amazement at how Hunter earned so much money on his father’s influence.
“Whoever saw anything like this? He goes to China, the kid follows him like a vacuum cleaner," Trump said.
"He follows and follows and follows,” Trump said.
“And unfortunately, it sounds like he left his laptop behind.”
Trump compared Hunter with disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner, whose laptop was seized by FBI agents in 2016 after being arrested for sending lewd pictures and messages to a minor.
“Between Anthony Weiner’s laptop and this laptop, these are two beauties,” he said.
“I think this one could be worse than the Weiner laptop.”
The President noted that he only difference between the two scandals was that the new one was “covered up by the media and Big Tech.”
“Here we have the biggest scandal going on anywhere in the world, the corruption of Joe Biden and the Biden family, and he’s interviewed last night by Stepheonoplous on ABC, and they don’t even ask him a question about it,” he said.
The CEOs of Facebook and Twitter were called to testify before Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Crime and Terrorism next week over allegations the social media giants are participating in "election interference."
Facebook's Mark Zuckerberg and Twitter's Jack Dorsey have been formally requested by U.S. Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) to explain their companies' actions during a hearing titled "Digital Platforms and Election Interference.”
