In an exclusive interview with Newsmax TV's Greg Kelly on Wednesday, President Donald Trump tore into Joe and Hunter Biden after an in-depth report linked the pair to officials in Ukraine, including at energy company Burisma Holdings.
Kelly, host of "Greg Kelly Reports," kicked off the interview by asking Trump about a series of New York Post stories published Wednesday that detailed the Biden-Ukraine connection.
The newspaper reported Hunter Biden introduced his father, who at the time was vice president, to a top official at Burisma in 2015.
"They're crooks, they've always been crooks," Trump said. "They're grifters and crooks, and this is what we're running against. And it's a disgrace. It's a disgrace. Nobody could believe it. It's turned out to be much worse.
"I give credit to the New York Post, and the mainstream media will try not to pick it up, even though it's a major scandal. It's a very sad thing when you look at that. Everywhere he goes, his son goes right behind him and grabs money."
Hunter Biden landed a lucrative job on the board of Burisma and was paid up to $50,000 a month while his father was in office. Joe Biden is now the Democratic Party's presidential nominee for next month's election.
It has been alleged the elder Biden played a role in snuffing out an investigation into Burisma's business dealings when Hunter was on the board.
The Post said it got ahold of emails that were obtained after someone dropped off a laptop with a Beau Biden Foundation sticker at a computer repair shop in Delaware in April 2019. The owner never picked up the computer, and the shop owner eventually contacted the FBI about what he found on it — but not before he made his own copy of the hard drive, which contained emails between Hunter Biden and officials in Ukraine, along with explicit photos and videos.
