The son of U.S. President Joe Biden Hunter told about the threat of prison if Donald Trump won the presidential election. This is stated in his book “Beautiful Things” (Beautiful Things), which went on sale April 6.
Hunter Biden has suggested that he could have ended up in prison if his father had lost the election, but he has denied any involvement in any “illegal financial transactions.”
“Trump’s victory was not only a threat to democracy, it seemed like a threat to my personal freedom…If my father had not won, I’m sure Trump would have continued to prosecute me on criminal charges,” he wrote.
Also in the book, Hunter attributes the Trump administration’s accusations against him solely to “political motives.” “I believe that in that political climate it didn’t matter what I did or didn’t do. The target of those attacks was not me, but my father,” he stressed.
Earlier, Hunter Biden told the BBC in an interview that he was able to get a high-paying job on the board of the Ukrainian gas company Burisma thanks to his last name.
The U.S. president’s son also admitted in his book that he had spent the money gained from his work on the board of the Ukrainian gas company Burisma on alcohol and drugs. He also noted that he did not consider it unethical to start working at Burisma when Joe Biden was vice-president of the United States. His father’s political career helped him, but, he said, neither he nor his father “did anything illegal,” especially with regard to Burisma.
