US President-elect Joe Biden has expressed full confidence in his son Hunter, a frequent target of Republican attacks, after it was revealed last week that he was under a federal tax investigation.
During his unsuccessful re-election campaign, President Donald Trump launched repeated accusations against Hunter and said the Bidens were a “corrupt” family and a “criminal enterprise.”
“We have great confidence in our son,” Biden said, sitting next to his wife Jill, in an interview on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert,” which aired Thursday on CBS.
“I am not concerned about any accusations that have been made against him. It used to get to me. I think it’s kind of foul play but… as long as he’s good, we’re good,” he said in his first full remarks on the issue since the tax probe became public.
Trump and his allies have regularly assailed Hunter for his business dealings in Ukraine and China.
