Speak Out: Hunter Biden stepping down from Chinese firm

Facing intense scrutiny from President Donald Trump and his Republican allies, Hunter Biden announced on Sunday that he will step down from the board of directors of a Chinese-backed private equity firm at the end of the month as part of a pledge not to work on behalf of any foreign-owned companies should his father win the presidency.

Biden, the 49-year-old son of Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, revealed his plan in an internet post written by his attorney, George Mesires, who outlined a defense of the younger Biden’s work in Ukraine and China, which have emerged as one of Trump’s chief lines of attack against Hunter’s father despite no proof of impropriety.

•Why is he in a Chinese and Ukraine company? If these were Trumps kids democrats would be foaming at the mouths. It’s why we don’t take democrats’ shrieks seriously. — Ryan Fenimore

•Trump’s kids are in several international companies. Take your blinders off. — Cheri Zatko-Coseglia

•Maybe you need to take your blinders off to see the pay for play difference — Jon Walczak

•You comparing Trump son running his international real estate company and Ivanka running her fashion business to Biden’s son working on a foreign energy company is laughable. He got the job just because he was Biden’s son. He had no experience. Turn your blind hatred for Trump down a little. — Ryan Fenimore

•Trump himself had no experience… — John Anderson

•He ran a billion dollar cooperation before he was president. We could debate who had more experience at leadership before becoming president…Obama or Trump…. — Ryan Fenimore

•We don’t want no Joe. He should just drop out and save his son. — Phil Davidson II

•I’m sure he’s doing this for all the right reasons, couldn’t be anything to do with what’s been going on lately, love how the Associated Press only cherry picked statements from Biden and •Hunter but used the rest of the article to try and implicate Trump again, Delaware should be ashamed we have a copy and paste news source — Christopher Joyce

•Hunter Biden will step down only if his father is elected President. — Anita Hubble Reich

•I’m okay with all this Hunter Biden angst since he obviously used his political connections for personal gain, but all these comments are intentionally not acknowledging the direct correlation between Ivanka, Eric and Don Jr. They’re even worse and somehow the country is silent on them. — Danielle Levredge

•Too late! The cats already out of the bag! — Mark Schmalhofer

•Innocent people don’t step down — Kirk Lawson
