Trump: Hunter Biden was acting like a ‘vacuum cleaner’ in foreign dealings

The New York Post:

President Trump said Hunter Biden was acting like a “vacuum cleaner” as he followed his father, then-Vice President Joe Biden, on foreign trips to make business deals.

“I mean his son walked around like a vacuum cleaner … and look, this is the laptop from hell,” the president said Tuesday on “Fox & Friends.”

“They say right in the laptop that, you know, the big man has to get 10 percent. And then in another case they say 50 percent. This is 100 percent. And even if he didn’t get any, and he lives like a king, even if he didn’t get all of this money — and everybody has known this in Washington for a long time — this isn’t surprising, nobody is surprised by this. But even if he didn’t. You can’t go to China and all of a sudden walk out with $1.5 billion to manage,” the president said.

The Post reported last Wednesday that emails found on a laptop left at a computer repair shop in Wilmington, Del., by Hunter Biden contained a cache of emails about his dealings with Ukraine and his efforts to create a business relationship with China.

“You can’t go to Ukraine and have him get $183,000 a month with a $3 million upfront payment. You can’t get $3.5 million from the mayor of Moscow’s wife. $3.5 million — and you have no experience, you didn’t have a job until the father became vice president. It’s a disgrace. When he says ‘I don’t know anything about this,’ and the media can’t cover it,” the president said on the Fox morning show.

Emails found on the computer appear to show that the elder Biden stood to profit off his son’s relationship with a Chinese energy company.

Reference to the “big guy” was included in an email discussing remuneration packages for a deal Hunter Biden was forging with Chinese energy company CEFC.

The email outlined a “provisional agreement” under which 80 percent of the “equity,” or shares in the new company, would be split equally among four people whose initials correspond to the sender and three recipients, with “H” apparently referring to Hunter Biden.

The deal also listed “10 Jim” and “10 held by H for the big guy?”

“The big guy” refers to the elder Biden, sources have told Fox News.
