Donald Trump, Jr. issued a strong challenge to those who say he's benefitted from his father's presidency, pointing out the media haven't thrown the same allegations at Hunter Biden.
And he's willing to throw down in a debate over it.
In an interview with Axios’ Jim VandeHei Sunday, Donald Trump, Jr. spoke out against those who criticize him for profiting from his father’s public office, and saying that although the Trump name has certainly afforded him benefits over the years, his father’s presidency has in no way played a part in any of those benefits. He then compared his record to that of Joe Biden's son, Hunter, who's been accused of benefiting financially from his position on the board of foreign energy companies thanks to his father's former status as vice president.
Trump, Jr. said that if the younger Biden is willing to release his tax returns, he will release his as well, and the two can have a debate over who has really benefitted from their father’s public office.
“I’m not going to pretend I haven’t benefitted from my father’s last name, just like Hunter Biden, it would be foolish to say that. But I haven’t benefitted from my father’s taxpayer-funded office, ok?”
