Biden says he would probably not pardon President Trump if the president is impeached and subsequently ousted from office.
“It wouldn’t unite the country,” Biden said of pardoning Trump. “You’d say: ‘Wait a minute. I get a parking ticket and I’ve got to pay it. This happens to me and I’ve got to go to jail. This guy does all these things that put us jeopardy and he gets off?”
Joe Biden comments came on the day his son Hunter Biden announced he would step down from the board of a Chinese company. Trump has accused the younger Biden of taking a trip with his father on Air Force Two to China in 2013 to obtain $1.5 billion for a business venture int he country.
The former vice president repeatedly criticized the media for reporting on Hunter Biden’s business ties in Ukraine and China. Joe Biden pressured Fox News on Oct. 4 to stop running a Trump ad he believes distorts his decision in 2015 urging Ukraine to oust its top prosecutor.
