On Saturday (June 24), former President Donald Trump connected recent details about Hunter Biden’s business pursuits to what he perceives as President Biden’s lack of action regarding China’s plans to construct a spy facility in Cuba.
During the Faith & Freedom Coalition’s Road to Majority gala in Washington D.C., Trump reacted to the recent Congressional testimony by the IRS whistleblower. The whistleblower reported that the agency obtained a WhatsApp message that Hunter Biden sent to Henry Zhao, CEO of Harvest Fund Management.
In the message, Hunter alleged that he was with his father and named him in order to pressure Zhao to follow through on a commitment.
Hunter Biden also threatened Zhao that if he, Zhang, or the company’s President didn’t reply, he would use his father’s connections to carry out a grudge.
It was revealed that days later, an account linked to Hunter Biden received more than $5 million.
After recalling the text messages, Trump mocked Hunter on Saturday, saying, “I didn’t know he was that tough!”
Trump linked the recent revelations to Biden’s alleged failure to take action regarding reports of the Chinese government’s plans to establish a spy base in Cuba.
Trump repeated that the Bidens had received $5 million “from China for absolutely no reason,” adding that the Bidens have “taken tens of millions of dollars from China,” suggesting that was the reason Biden had not complained about China “building military bases in Cuba.”
The former President went on to suggest that Biden is a “compromised president,” claiming that the Democratic President was causing his past business dealings to influence his current policies, describing it as “100 times bigger than Watergate.”
The Biden administration continues to downplay reports that there was a secret agreement between China and Cuba to develop an eavesdropping facility to collect electronic communications, claiming it was not a new issue and existed before the administration.
