During a Saturday night speech at the Faith & Freedom Coalition conference in Washington, D.C., former President Donald Trump condemned the corruption of President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.
“Joe Biden is the most corrupt president in the history of our country — by far,” Trump said to thunderous applause.
“Just two days ago, a very respected IRS whistleblower — remember when the Democrats used to love whistleblowers, they don’t like the whistleblowers now — revealed that Crooked Joe sat in a room while his son Hunter messaged a Chinese Communist Party official and said to this Chinese party official, I quote, ‘I am sitting here with my father, and we would like to understand why the commitment made has not been fulfilled.’ This is cash he’s talking about,” the former president explained.
Donald Trump savages the Biden crime family. This is well said. Don’t see any way Joe Biden is going to be the Democrat nominee in 2024. The Biden crime family makes the Trump allegations look like jaywalking. pic.twitter.com/k7bqjVMq9l

Trump went on to condemn the corrupt mainstream media for refusing to cover the story, and quoted Hunter Biden’s WhatsApp message — which was sent in 2017 to Chinese businessman Henry Zhao, demanding money while using his father, who he said was in the room with him, as a threat.
Noting that “it doesn’t get reported in the newspapers,” Trump quoted: “Tell the director that I would like to resolve this now before it gets out of hand, and now means right now — it means tonight.”
“You believe this? I didn’t know he was that tough,” he commented, prompting laughter from the audience.
Trump then continued to quote Hunter Biden’s message, reading: “And if I get a call or a text from anyone involved in this other than you, Zang or the chairman, I will make certain that between the man sitting next to me, my father … and every person he knows you will regret not following my direction.”
“Now, can you imagine the newspapers not reporting this?” Trump asked. “Not a word of it in any of them — in any of them, mainstream. I’m sitting here waiting for the call, he said. With my father, I’m sitting here with my father waiting for the call. In other words, send us money. Within 10 days the Bidens got $5.1 million from China for absolutely no reason.”

“They got $5.1 million,” Trump explained. “In fact, they’ve taken tens of millions of dollars from China, and that’s probably why maybe he’s not complaining about the fact that they’re building military bases in Cuba. Maybe that’s the reason, I guess.”
Later in his speech, the former president also condemned the repeated attempts to indict him on dubious charges — noting that “every time the radical left Democrats, Marxist, communists and fascists indict me, I consider it a great badge of courage.”
“I’m being indicted for you, and I believe the ‘you’ is more than 200 million people that love our country,” Trump added.
