US President-elect Joe Biden has expressed full confidence in his son Hunter, who announced last week that he was undergoing a tax investigation.
President Donald Trump has repeatedly accused Hunter during the campaign, calling the Biden family a “corrupt” family and a “criminal enterprise.”
“We have a lot of trust in our son,” Biden said while speaking with his wife, Jill, on CBS’s Late Show With Stephen Colbert.
“I am not worried about any charges against him. It used to hurt me. I think that there is something unclean in these accusations, but … as long as he is fine, we are also fine, ”Biden said, touching on the issue for the first time since the investigation became known.
Colbert asked Biden if there was anything he could “sincerely” thank Trump for as president.
After a short pause, Biden replied, “There is something … The launch of the vaccine is a positive development. But overall he was a president who believed the key to his success was to divide us. “
