Speak Out: Calling on China

President Donald Trump, ensnared in an impeachment inquiry over his request that Ukraine investigate former Vice President Joe Biden, on Thursday called on China to do the same.

“China should start an investigation into the Bidens,” Trump said in remarks to reporters outside the White House. Trump said he hadn’t directly asked Chinese President Xi Jinping to investigate Biden and his son Hunter but it’s “certainly something we could start thinking about.”

By publicly egging China on to investigate a Democratic political rival, Trump affirmed the approach he made in private to Ukraine’s president that has led to the impeachment investigation by the House.

• Just follow the Constitution and the oath of office. Right now, Trump is drowning in his lies. — Elizabeth Kenney

• So I suppose the video of Joe Biden admitting that he intimidated the Ukrainian president about firing a top prosecutor going after Biden’s son has no bearing on anything does it? Do you Democrats have selective memory or you do you just stick with the deny deny deny and it didn’t happen? And I suppose the recording of Adam Schift on a phone call with what he thought were Russian operatives telling him that they had dirt on Trump. I guess that’s totally legal right? I guess that’s OK for him to do that and it’s OK for Biden to strong-arm a president about a prosecutor being fired. But that’s OK?— Christopher Dunion

• Please read some actual context of Biden’s comments. He was part of a large group of world leaders requiring that Ukraine take government corruption seriously as a condition of receiving foreign aid. That prosecutor WASN’T investigating enough and letting corruption continue. There was a bigger chance that his son would be investigated under a new prosecutor. — Stephanie Hart

• Back in 2017 Trump called the checks and balance system archaic and looks at the Constitution as a contract and like any good corporate politician, he has lawyers looking for all the loopholes. — Mary E. Yoder

• Investigate them all how did Obama just by a 15 million dollar house on a president’s salary? — Stephen Terrance Herd

• Obama is worth nearly $40 million and her book is the best-selling memoir ever. You can’t be serious with your question. — Eddie Curley

• Now China? Just another smoke screen and diversion from the trouble Trump is in. — Merv Sparks

• He is trying to normalize his illegal behavior.. his supporters will say how can it be illegal if he keeps doing it? — Larry Josefowski

• Thank you Mr. President! The swamp is being drained! — Mark Schmalhofer

• And being replaced with sewage. — Joyce A. Getty

• How can you trust someone who tries to get foreign powers to do his dirty work? He’s running scared. — Lani Cotton
