As part of the mainstream media’s bizarre efforts to cover-up blatant Biden family corruption, one reporter attempted to discredit the reports about the family’s crimes, but President Trump absolutely shut them down.
The president was questioned by a reporter on the tarmac ahead of his Monday rally in Arizona. The reporter asked, “Your campaign strategy seems to be to call Biden a criminal. Why is that?”
President Trump smoothly shot down the reporter, saying “He is a criminal. He’s a criminal. He got caught. Read his laptop. And you know who’s a criminal? You’re a criminal for not reporting it. You are a criminal for not reporting it. Let me tell you something: Joe Biden is a criminal and he’s been a criminal for a long time and you’re a criminal and the media for not reporting it.”
Trump has long maintained (rightfully so) that the media has treated him unfairly, especially in comparison with Joe Biden in the run up to the 2020 election.
Near the end of September, the president blasted the mainstream media’s refusal to report on wrongdoing by the Democrats referencing Hillary’s efforts to frame President Trump for Russian collusion and a developing scandal surrounding Hunter Biden.
“If we had a media that was fair — even just reasonable — this would be the biggest story for years and years. Then you’d be entitled to real Pulitzer Prizes, not the fake committee that gives away these fake awards,” Trump said.
He continued, “It turned out that, if you read the — you read the texts that came out over the last three days, it turned out that they were really — it was reversed; it was the DNC and the Democrats that were using Russia.”
“And related or unrelated, Hunter Biden got three and a half million dollars from the wife of the mayor of Moscow. Why did he get three and a half million dollars? And then he got millions more than we thought from Ukraine, and he got millions more than we heard about from China. Hunter Biden — Where’s Hunter? … And the press doesn’t ask those questions. It’s incredible.”
“And then you have to say, ‘What about Joe’s involvement?’ Trump continued. “And why did Joe not give the billion dollars over to Ukraine, as an example, until such time as they let go of a prosecutor that was investigating the company that his son was involved with?”
“Why did [Hunter Biden] get three and half million dollars? I’ll tell you why: Because Joe Biden was in on it. Joe was in on it. There’s no way that he wasn’t. And uses Joe Biden’s plane — Air Force Two. Uses Joe — and they go to China, and then he comes back, and he never mentioned it to his father that he just got a billion and a half dollars?”
During a Sunday rally in Nevada, President Trump called Democratic nominee Joe Biden a “corrupt politician” and labeled the Biden Family as a “criminal enterprise,” as the chanted “Lock him up,” referring to Joe Biden.
“In 2016, you voted to fire this corrupt and decrepit political establishment and you elected an outsider as president who is finally putting America first,” Trump told the rally.
“Joe Biden is and always has been a corrupt politician. He always has been. And as far as I’m concerned, the Biden family is a criminal enterprise. It really is.”
Trump continued by suggesting that the Biden family alone wasn’t the problem but the “very powerful” Democratic Party along with the “fake news media and also including big tech” were a threat to good government.
