Jill Biden went on the defensive to protect her son, Hunter, saying that President Trump’s attacks on her family are evidence that the president is “afraid” to run against her husband.
“Well, you know, when Joe and I decided to run for president, when we made that decision, we knew it was going to be tough,” Jill Biden said Saturday on MSNBC.
“But we never could have imagined that it would turn into, that Donald Trump would be asking a foreign government to get involved in our elections, and I think, you know, Donald Trump has shown us who he is, and this has been a real distraction,” she continued. “And I think it just proves that he’s afraid to run against my husband, Joe Biden.”
President Trump has been adamant that Hunter Biden should be investigated over corruption allegations linked to his work for a natural gas company in the Ukraine that was under investigation while Joe Biden was Vice President.
Jill Biden maintained that her son did nothing wrong and that her husband will continue to defend him.
