Trump says Biden was ‘corrupt’ VP and ‘everyone in Washington knew it’

President Trump on Thursday accused Joe Biden of shipping American jobs to China while son Hunter Biden was allegedly selling Chinese moguls access to his then-vice president dad.

Citing bombshell new reporting by The Post, the commander-in-chief told a crowd at a rally in Greenville, N.C. that the Democratic nominee was “corrupt” and claimed “everyone in Washington knew it.”

“Yesterday we learned from newly-released emails — and I want to thank the New York Post — that Joe Biden has been blatantly lying about his involvement in his son’s corrupt business dealings,” Trump said.

Emails published by The Post on Wednesday indicate Hunter Biden tried to broker a meeting between his dad and a Ukrainian gas executive who was under investigation at the time.

The correspondence — which flies in the face of Biden’s claims that he has “never spoken” to his oft-troubled son about his overseas business dealings while he was Obama’s vice president — was found in a trove of data recovered from a laptop computer.

“Just now, a little while ago, a new story shows up that Hunter made a deal with a wealthy Chinese business magnate for $10 million a year for introductions only,” Trump continued, citing an email from the devastating tranche of documents which showed the ex-veep’s son stood to make up to $10 million a year from a deal with a Chinese energy company.

“I don’t know, will you take $10 million a year to introduce people? Yeah, if they introduce dad. ‘Dad, say hello and dad, give them everything they want, OK? Give them everything they want, dad,’” Trump said, mimicking Hunter Biden.

“These deals were made at the same time that Joe Biden was letting China steal your jobs and take away your factories,” he went on, repeating earlier charges that a President Biden would allow China to “own” the US.

The president also threatened to take away the legal liability protections of social media companies who on Wednesday took the unprecedented step of restricting The Post’s reporting on their platforms.

They got caught, now they’re being protected by big tech,” Trump said of the Biden campaign.

“We’re going to take away their Section 230 unless they shape up,” he said, referring to the federal law that largely exempts online platforms from legal liability for material posted by their users.
