Eric Trump, executive vice president of the Trump Organization and one of President Trump's sons, said he'd likely be incarcerated if he behaved as Hunter Biden did while his father, former Vice President Joe Biden, was in office.
On Tuesday, Hunter Biden broke his silence in his first televised interview since his overseas business dealings came under scrutiny, maintaining he did nothing improper while he served on the board of a Ukrainian gas company. The 49-year-old did tell ABC's "Good Morning America" that accepting the lucrative position was, in retrospect, "poor judgment."
"What they were doing was incredibly unethical and quite frankly if I did that -- if I were sitting on boards -- I'd be in jail right now. I'd be in jail right now for what he did," Trump told Fox Nation's David Webb on his show, "Reality Check with David Webb."
"Look at a Ukrainian oil and gas company giving Hunter Biden $50,000 a month ... $600,000 a year," Trump continued. "The board members of Exxon Mobil, one of the largest oil companies in the world, get paid $300,000, and he's getting paid $600,000 for a small oil and gas company out of Ukraine. Give me a break. It's rampant corruption."
Ahead of the Democratic debate in Ohio on Tuesday night, Trump observed that the ethical concerns facing former Vice President Biden are the direct result of the Democrat's efforts to investigate his father and President Trump's controversial call with the pesident of Ukraine.
"The irony of the whole thing is that this sham impeachment process -- I actually call it a coup, it's not impeachment, it is absolutely a coup -- they took out their frontrunner," Trump said, referencing Joe Biden. "They took out probably their best player ... with this impeachment sham."
