Donald Trump Jr. challenged Hunter Biden to a debate over who has profited more from their father's government service in an interview for "Axios on HBO" on Sunday.
The president's eldest son added that as part of the debate he would release his tax returns if former vice president Joe Biden's son did as well.
"We can go full transparency, we show everything, and we can talk about all of the places where I am supposedly grifting but Hunter Biden isn't," said Trump Jr.
"I was an international businessperson before my father got into politics," Trump Jr. said. "I'm not gonna say I haven't benefited from my father's last name, just like Hunter Biden did ... But, I haven't benefited from my father's taxpayer-funded office," continuing that "Hunter Biden, his father becomes VP, all of a sudden he goes over to Ukraine and he's making 83 grand a month."
Biden campaign national press secretary T.J. Ducklo said in response that "It is hard to believe anything a Trump says on tax returns when Donald Sr. has lied for years about releasing his."
Axios pointed out that Republicans harshly attacked Joe Biden for a year over his son's position at a corrupt Ukrainian company while he was vice president, but then recently stopped talking about it when it appeared Biden would not win the Democratic presidential nomination.
But with Biden's recent resurgence, GOP congressmen are preparing to launch probes into Hunter Biden.
Democrats have retaliated by threatening to investigate the business dealing of Trump's children.
A source close to Trump Jr. told Axios that "Don is already one of the most scrutinized people on planet Earth and is more than prepared to respond to Democrat attacks. The same can't be said about Hunter Biden."
