Don Jr. Says He Wishes He Was Hunter Biden So He Could "Make Millions"
The president’s eldest son railed against former Vice President Joe Biden’s son again on Wednesday, saying if he were Hunter Biden, he would “be a really rich guy.”
According to The Hill, Donald Trump Jr. made the remarks while speaking with Fox News host Sean Hannity.
"I wish my name was Hunter Biden. I could go abroad, make millions off my father’s presidency," he said. "I’d be a really rich guy."
Trump Jr. continued, arguing that there is a double standard in the controversy over his father’s interactions with Ukraine, which sparked an impeachment inquiry in the House. President Donald Trump allegedly pressured Ukraine to launch investigations into the Biden family over unfounded allegations of corruption.
"If I took a no-show job for a business I knew nothing about, in a language I didn’t speak, in a country like Ukraine, where my dad says we’re going to hold billions of taxpayer dollars if you don’t get rid of a prosecutor investigating me, the media would end themselves," Trump Jr. said, referencing the former vice president’s efforts to remove a Ukrainian prosecutor who was thought by many world leaders to be corrupt.
Trump Jr. continued: "They’d have an aneurysm. We’d have an end to the fake news problem. That’s the double standard that we’re living under right now, and that’s the double standard the American people are all sick and tired of."
Both Trump Jr. and his brother Eric Trump, who together run the day-to-day operations of the Trump Organization while their father is in office, have leveled intense criticism at the Biden family as the impeachment probe gathers steam.
“Why is it that every family goes into politics and enriches themselves?” Eric Trump pondered earlier this month on Fox News — without a hint of irony.
