Joe Biden is the leading Democrat running for president.
But that’s about to change.
And it’s all because Biden’s campaign was just set on fire after Trump did something no one saw coming.
Democrats are lifting up Joe Biden as their last greatest hope of defeating President Donald Trump in the 2020 presidential election.
But while the former Vice President under Barack Obama is being hailed as the savior of the party, there’s a great chance he won’t even make it to the general election.
And it’s not just because Biden faces the largest field of Democratic candidates in history.
Biden is also now staring down a potential investigation that could ruin his presidential ambitions and leave the entire Democratic party in shambles just when they were hoping to finally take down President Trump.
And it’s all thanks to one stunning tweet that Trump himself put out.
Breitbart reports, “Appearing recently on the Fox News Channel’s The Next Revolution with Steve Hilton, President Donald Trump called for the Biden family to be investigated over their business links to the Chinese government.”
Trump took the gloves off for this too, taking no prisoners in his slamming of Joe Biden and his ties to China.
In an impromptu interview outside the White House, Trump spoke to reporters about the claims.
Hilton asked Trump about his fight to drain the swamp in Washington.
“On the swamp, there was one example of it that I just got so angry about and we talked about it on the show, and you saw it too. Obama’s head of cybersecurity then becomes a lobbyist on cybersecurity for Huawei and that’s all perfectly above board,” Hilton said.
He continued, “He declared it. There’s nothing you can do about it. Don’t you think that should just not be allowed, that you shouldn’t be allowed to lobby for a foreign government?”
Trump’s response was legendary.
“I would be all for that. I think it should be a lifetime ban. Some people say five years. We’re putting in for five years. It’s very hard because the same people that are working in government, they work in government and then they take these unbelievable jobs,” the President said.
“That happens with me too. They’re part of your campaign and all of a sudden they’re working with these– and it’s a very tough thing. There’s a very fine line. But I would love to see a five-year ban. I’d actually like to see a lifetime ban. Look at Joe Biden.”
When Hilton asked about lobbyists and foreign governments, however, Trump decided to drop the hammer on Biden.
“I think it’s a disgrace. Look at Joe Biden. He calls [Ukraine] and says ‘Don’t you dare prosecute. If you don’t fire this prosecutor.’ The prosecutor was after his son,” Trump said. “He said if you fire the prosecutor, you’ll be okay, and if you don’t fire the prosecutor we’re not giving you two-billion dollars in loan guarantees or whatever he was supposed to give. Can you imagine if I did that?”
When Hilton asked if Biden should be investigated, Trump concluded by agreeing. “100 percent,” Trump said. “It’s a disgrace and then he says China is not a competitor of ours. China is a massive competitor of ours. They want to take over the world.”
