Donald Trump Jr. responded to criticisms from Hunter Biden who held an interview with ABC News earlier this week.
“Right out of school, he gets a high paying job from MBNA — the biggest bank and the largest employer in the state of Delaware — where [his father] is conveniently a senator,” he said.
During the interview, Trump also ripped Biden taking a position on the board of Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian natural gas company as well as a Chinese private equity firm.
“They want to question my family,” he remarked.
“If Donald Trump Jr. took one-point-five dollars from China — not $1.5 billion, Sean — just one-point-five dollars, we’d solve the fake news media problem because their heads would explode and there would be none of them left,” he said.
“It would be over if I did that for a ‘no-show’ job for $83,000 a month in Ukraine,” he claimed.
In the ABC News interview, the younger Biden rejected concerns about President Trump’s two eldest sons, saying that Trump Jr. is “not somebody that I really care about” and rejecting a remark Eric Trump made at a recent rally for his father in Minneapolis about altering the “lock her up” chant to “lock him up” — referencing the 49-year-old.
“I’ve been through some real, real stuff,” Biden said in the interview. “This isn’t real stuff… ‘Barnum & Bailey’ — ‘say anything,’ ‘do anything you want’.”
On “Hannity,” Trump Jr. dismissed comparisons between the Biden children and the Trump children, saying his own family made its money in international business before the current president was elected.
“And, we gave up doing all new deals going forward,” he added.
“The double standard is despicable,” Trump continued.
“Hunter Biden’s 50. I wasn’t off-limits when it started at 38 [years old] — Hunter Biden shouldn’t be off-limits now.”
