Trump slams Hunter Biden on overseas deals, praises Post reporting

President Trump slammed Hunter Biden’s overseas business dealings during a Sunday campaign rally in New Hampshire, while praising The Post’s reporting on the issue.

“It’s called the laptop from hell,” Trump told a crowd of supporters at an airfield in Londonderry, referring to a computer that contained a trove of sensitive emails and files from Vice President Joe Biden’s son, as reported first by The Post.

“So this guy was — we won’t say why or how — sadly, no longer in the Navy,” said Trump of the younger Biden, discharged in 2014 amid his well-publicized battle with drug addiction.

“Empty years, nothing,” Trump continued. “And then his father becomes vice president, and now he’s making tens of millions of dollars. It’s wrong.

“And Joe’s making it too, by the way,” Trump declared, citing an email which notes that a cut of proceeds from a Chinese business deal would be set aside “for the big guy” — which, according to Fox News, was a veiled reference to the elder Biden.

Joe Biden has long denied discussing overseas business deals with Hunter, and characterized the new information as “a last-ditch effort in this desperate campaign to smear me and my family.”

Trump on Sunday heaped praise on The Post for reporting on the issue while most mainstream media outlets shied away — and assailed social-media sites like Facebook and Twitter for their roles in stemming the stories’ spread.

“The media refuses to write it,” he said. “Except for the New York Post, by the way, whose stock has gone way up. I have a lot of respect for the New York Post. What they’ve done is incredible.

“They put a story from the New York Post — fourth-largest newspaper in the country and the oldest by far, founded by Alexander Hamilton — somebody puts up a story about this Biden corruption, which is incredible, and they blocked the story and take down the story.

“It’s unbelievable.”
