Donald Trump criticized: Hunter Biden calls ex-POTUS 'vile' in upcoming memoir
One of the points that now-former President Donald Trump and his allies have used to attack Joe Biden was through his son Hunter Biden. In his upcoming memoir, Biden breaks his silence to blast the former president’s attacks on him and his businesses.
Hunter Biden’s memoir, titled “Beautiful Things,” is set to launch next week on April 6, where he details his struggle with grief, addiction, and even weighing in on the constant attacks made towards him by Trump and his allies.
According to excerpts published by The Guardian, Biden blasted Trump, describing the former president as a “vile man with a vile mission” while dismissing the accusations made towards him during his time on the board of Ukraine energy firm Burisma in 2014.
“I became a proxy for Donald Trump’s fear that he wouldn’t be reelected,” wrote Biden. “He pushed debunked conspiracy theories about work I did in Ukraine and China, even as his own children had pocketed millions in China and Russia and his former campaign manager (Paul Manafort) sat in a jail cell for laundering millions more from Ukraine.”
“Trump believed that if he could destroy me, and by extension my father, he could dispatch any candidate of decency from either party, all while diverting attention from his own corrupt behavior,” Biden added, going on to note that while his surname has helped him succeed in business, he is not like Trump’s children, Eric Trump or Donald Trump Jr. Both sons run the Trump Organization.
“I am not Eric Trump or Donald Trump Jr. I’ve worked for someone other than my father. I rose and fell on my own.”
The President has also previously revealed that he has read a copy of his son’s memoir, and in an interview with CBS Evening News back in February, got emotional, saying that reading about his son’s struggles “gave him hope.
Biden has also defended his son from Trump’s accusations while acknowledging his past struggle with addiction during the first presidential debate. Biden shared that he is proud of his son for seeking treatment and overcoming his struggle with substance abuse.
