Joe Biden says he’d bar family from foreign business dealings if elected

If presidential hopeful Joe Biden gets elected, his family members — including son Hunter — will be barred from engaging in foreign business dealings, he said in an interview aired Sunday.

“They will not be engaged in any foreign business because of what’s happened in this administration,” Biden said on “Axios on HBO.”

The former vice president blamed President Trump’s family members’ government and business practices as the source of his decision, not Hunter’s past work with Ukrainian gas company Burisma Holdings.

Axios’ Mike Allen questioned Biden — who was vice president while Hunter was in his position at Burisma — if he thought his son’s situation was “kosher.” Hunter was paid up to $50,000 per month for sitting on the company’s board.

“You know there’s not one single bit of evidence, not one little tiny bit to suggest anything done was wrong. You know that,” Biden shot back.

The Democratic candidate also claimed that he was unaware of what Hunter’s job entailed.

“I don’t know what he was doing. I know he was on the board. I found out he was on the board after he was on the board and that was it,” Biden said.
