In the tumultuous world of political discourse, the truth often takes time to unveil itself. President Donald Trump has consistently voiced concerns about the Biden family’s foreign business entanglements, particularly during the heated 2020 presidential debates. Recent developments suggest that many of Trump’s assertions were not “baseless,” as repeatedly claimed by the corporate media and Democrats.
One of the most memorable moments from the 2020 debates was when Trump confronted then-candidate Joe Biden about his son’s questionable international business affairs. “China ate your lunch, Joe. The mayor of Moscow’s wife gave your son three and a half million dollars,” Trump pointed out. Biden’s swift rebuttal, “That is not true,” is now under fresh scrutiny.
My latest: I looked through what Donald Trump said about the Biden family’s business dealings during the 2020 presidential campaign.

New evidence has illuminated the once murky waters surrounding Hunter Biden’s overseas dealings, notably with Ukrainian, Russian and Chinese associates. Specifically, a Senate report discovered that in February 2014, Hunter Biden’s consulting firm received $3.5 million from Russian oligarch Elena Baturina, wife of former Moscow Mayor Yuri Luzhkov.
Delving deeper into the relationship between the Bidens and Baturina, Devon Archer, Hunter’s former business associate, testified about a 2014 dinner in Washington, D.C., attended by both Joe and Hunter Biden with the Russian billionaire. Such revelations question Biden’s prior stance that he was unaware of his son’s international dealings.
Ukraine was also a focal point of Trump’s allegations. He repeatedly referenced Biden’s involvement in firing Ukrainian prosecutor Viktor Shokin, who was investigating the energy firm Burisma where Hunter served as a board member. Archer’s testimony further substantiated this, detailing another dinner that Joe Biden attended with Burisma executive Vadim Pozharskyi.
With Hunter receiving an $83,000 monthly payment from Burisma, Trump’s claims about potential conflicts of interest seem more grounded than ever.
Moreover, Hunter’s connections with China have also been under the magnifying glass. Revelations from a Senate report highlighted that he received payments from CEFC China Energy, a company linked to the Chinese Communist Party. Further testimonies unveiled an alleged threatening text Hunter sent a CEFC associate and a $100,000 payment to one of Biden’s shell companies by CEFC.
Yet, as these developments emerge, the White House’s stance remains unchanged. After the revelations of Archer’s testimony, White House spokesperson Ian Sams reinforced that President Biden “was not involved in his son’s business.”
The intricacies of these business dealings and their implications on U.S. politics remain to be fully understood. However, one thing is clear: Trump’s concerns were not mere political maneuvering. They were grounded in an emerging reality that continues to unravel, justifying many of his voiced suspicions.
Trump, who now holds a commanding lead in the 2024 Republican presidential primary race, was recently indicted over his alleged involvement in questioning the 2020 election results. The revelations about the Biden family’s dealings remind us of the complex interplay of politics, business, and truth. One can only hope that transparency prevails, allowing the public to make informed decisions about the leaders they choose.
