Trump Threatens to Mention Hunter’s Email Story at Debate After Media Ignores It

Trump campaign adviser Jason Miller has vowed President Trump will bring up the Hunter Biden email story at Thursday night’s third and final presidential debate.

“I think Joe Biden is compromised,” Miller claimed.” Joe Biden has now dodged this multiple times.”

“Are you the ‘big guy?’ Are you the ‘chairman?’ Is Hunter Biden handling family expenses and setting aside money for you?” he continued during an interview on Fox Business.

Miller went on to suggest that if the debate moderator isn’t willing to bring up the controversial story, President Trump will.

“If Kristen Welker, the moderator, doesn’t bring it up, I think you’re pretty safe to assume that the president will,” he suggested. “Again, these are real simple questions.”

 

The emails in question were first published in the New York Post.

They, in part, revealed that Biden’s son may have introduced the then-vice president to a top executive at the Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma Holdings.

The alleged meeting came less than a year before Biden pressured government officials in Ukraine to fire prosecutor Viktor Shokin, who was investigating the company.

Most media outlets declined to cover the story or independently verify the emails. Fox News has attempted to investigate further.

Sources told Fox that the “big guy” in one email discussing “remuneration packages” split between six people in a business deal with a Chinese energy firm was a reference to Biden.

Trump Will Bring Up Hunter Biden Email Story at Debate

Miller also accused the Commission on Presidential Debates of shifting the focus of Thursday’s debate as a means to help keep the unconfirmed story out of the discussion.

“We were supposed to have a debate largely focused on foreign policy this next Thursday, which would be perfect especially as we talk about the issue of Joe Biden potentially being compromised,” Miller said.

“I wish we were spending a lot more time going into foreign policy, especially as President Trump has these peace deals that he’s able to point to.”

The President’s son was not pleased with reports on the topic shift either.

The Presidential Debates Commission is a disgrace

1st they chose a Biden intern that was fired for lying about being hacked

Next moderator is a “former” Dem operative

Now they eliminate little things like Foreign Policy form the debate to save Joe from his corruption.

WTF!!!

The commission is including the topic of “National Security” in the debate format, however.

“We do know that Joe Biden lied to the American public when he said he never discussed his son Hunter’s business dealings,” Miller claimed, citing no evidence.

“Joe Biden has not come out and himself denied any of these allegations,” he continued, “think we’re going to hear a lot more about this on Thursday at the debate.”

President Trump will highlight his record of keeping America safe in this week’s debate.

Media Seemingly More Concerned About Biden’s Ice Cream Than Emails

While the media seem uninterested in either confirming or disputing the New York Post story, instead shielding it from the public interest, some reporters are focused more trivial things.

Biden visited a Cook Out in Durham, North Carolina on Sunday, ordering milkshakes for him and his granddaughter.

And the journalists around him as well it appears in the following video clip, where a reporter gleefully shouts out, “Mr. Biden, Mr. Biden, what flavor did you get?!”

To his credit, that same reporter then tried to ask about the FBI investigation, a question which sent Biden scurrying away.

Note how Biden was more than willing to discuss milkshakes with the happy reporters but when the topic switched to the Hunter Biden story, he immediately walked off.

Journalists used to use that as a cue to start asking even more questions. Instead, expect the President to have to force the narrative at the next debate.
