“Biden is the living embodiment of the corrupt political crass,” Trump said at his rally in Florida, seeming to mean “class.” “And you take a look at what he’s done. It’s a political class that enriched itself while draining the economic life and soul from our country. Look at what’s happened and now you see it,” Trump said during a rally in Florida.
He added, “And you see it better than ever before and with all of the things that you know that took place, not one question was asked of this guy last night about that. Can you even believe it? It’s the biggest story worldwide. It’s a corrupt family and these people didn’t ask him one single question about it, it’s incredible.”
The crowd began to boo and started to chant “lock him up.”
Trump chuckled and replied, “It’s true.”

The story published by the New York Post alleges Hunter Biden introduced his father to an executive for Ukrainian energy company Burisma while he was still vice president, as IJR previously reported.
Biden’s campaign denied the report.
“Investigations by the press, during impeachment, and even by two Republican-led Senate committees whose work was decried as ‘not legitimate’ and political by a GOP colleague have all reached the same conclusion: that Joe Biden carried out official U.S. policy toward Ukraine and engaged in no wrongdoing. Trump Administration officials have attested to these facts under oath,” Biden spokesman Andrew Bates said.
The statement added, “Moreover, we have reviewed Joe Biden’s official schedules from the time and no meeting, as alleged by the New York Post, ever took place.”
