Donald Trump Jr. Challenges Hunter Biden to a Debate
Conservatives on Twitter are often eager to challenge Democratic rivals to a debate. Ben Shapiro offered Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez $10,000 to participate in a debate against him. Sometimes they want to debate each other. Mike Cernovich offered Ted Cruz $100,000 to debate him over Donald Trump.
Over the past week, Donald Trump Jr. has unironically been accusing Hunter Biden of benefiting financially from having a powerful father. After facing criticism for the claim, the President’s son challenged the former Vice President’s son to a debate over who has benefited more from their family ties.
The First Son issued the challenge during an interview with Axios’ Jim VandeHei. “I was an international business person before my father got into politics. That’s what we did,” Trump Jr. claimed. “I’m not going to say I haven’t benefited from my father’s last name, just like Hunter Biden did. I’d be foolish to say that. But I haven’t benefited from my father’s taxpayer-funded office, Okay?
Trump Jr. continued:
“We stopped doing any new international business deals when my father won the presidency.So you know what would be great? I’ll let you host it. You moderate a debate between Hunter Biden and myself. Come on! Let’s do it. “No, no, seriously. We can go full transparency. We show everything, and we can talk about all of the places where I’m supposedly grifting but Hunter Biden isn’t. I would love to do it.”
The President’s son even said that he would release his own tax returns if Biden was willing to release his. You can see a clip of the interview here, courtesy of HBO:
