(TheConservativeNews.org) – Donald Trump Jr. accused President Biden Friday of using TikTok as a scapegoat to distract from the Biden family’s financial ties to Chinese companies.
Trump Jr. spoke after it was revealed members of the Biden family received more than $1 million in payments from accounts related to Hunter Biden’s business associate Rob Walker and their Chinese business ventures in 2017.
“Biden is getting smoked by China everywhere that matters, and now we find out that Hunter Biden, Hallie Biden and no-telling-what-other Bidens got over $1 million from some supposed Chinese business ventures,” Trump Jr. told Fox News Digital. “So, his handlers are like, ‘We’ve got to come up with a way to seem like we’re tough on China. Oh, we’ve got it, sir. There’s an app where kids record dances; we should ban it.’”
Trump Jr. said he is “all for making sure China isn’t influencing Americans and stealing our data,” adding the U.S. should “go hardcore on the TikTok regulations.”
“But I can’t take Biden seriously when they’re not even going to address the same issues with all the other social media apps that let data flow through China,” he said. “It’s a fake tough guy act.”
Trump Jr. was referring to reports the Biden administration has demanded that TikTok’s Chinese owners sell their stakes in the video-sharing platform or face a possible U.S. ban.
The House Oversight Committee reviewed subpoenaed Bank of America records and found this week that “at least three family members” received lucrative payments from a bank account belonging to Hunter Biden’s business associate, Rob Walker, weeks after he received a $3 million wire transfer from a Chinese energy company, State Energy HK Limited.
“Imagine if we tried to pull something like this,” Trump Jr. said, referring to his family. “It’d be wall-to-wall coverage claiming corruption.”
According to the House Oversight Committee, President Biden’s daughter-in-law, Hallie Biden, the widow of President Biden’s son Beau who later was romantically involved with Hunter, received a payment from Walker’s account — Robinson Walker, LLC — in March 2017 totaling $25,000.
A bank account identified as belonging to an unknown “Biden” also received $70,000 from Robinson Walker, LLC between March 2017 and May 2017.
