Trump just publicly suggested China start investigating the Bidens

Who needs whistleblowers anyway?

President Trump literally said the quiet part out loud and in public on Thursday when, after being asked what he thinks Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky should do after their phone call, said "I would recommend that they start an investigation into the Bidens." And then he added another doozy, suggesting for some reason that China's Xi Jinping should consider investigating the Bidens too.

Just as a whistleblower report alleged, a phone call between Trump and Zelensky released last week revealed Trump pushed the Ukrainian leader to investigate former Vice President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden regarding Hunter's business dealings in Ukraine. Trump doubled down on that request on Thursday and then unexpectedly said "Likewise, China should start an investigation into the Bidens." When asked if Trump had already told Xi to do so, he said "I haven't, but it’s certainly something we should start thinking about." Kathryn Krawczyk
