Former Vice President Joe Biden addressed President Donald Trump directly on October 2.
“You’re not going to destroy me and not going to destroy my family,” Biden said. Biden delivered this comment due to the remarks on the Ukraine controversy.
Biden told the crowd of voters in Reno, Nevada, “I’m not going anywhere.” The former vice president is running to take on Trump in the 2020 election.
Biden responded to Trump’s allegations about Biden’s role in the Ukraine controversy.
Trump called for both Ukraine and China to investigate Biden. According to the Wall Street Journal, Trump’s comments come after persuading Ukraine to investigate Biden in a phone call that happened in July.
House Democrats have already asked for an impeachment inquiry on whether or not the president abused the power of his office for political gain.
On October 3, the president spoke to reporters and called for Volodymyr Zelensky, the president of Ukraine, to lead the investigation against Biden.
“I would say, President Zelensky, if it was me, I would start an investigation into the Bidens,” Trump said.
The Wall Street Journal also reported that the president said China should also start an investigation of the Bidens.
“What happened in China is just about as bad as what happened with Ukraine,” Trump said.
The president called for an investigation due to Biden’s “anticorruption efforts as vice president in Ukraine while Mr. Biden’s son Hunter sat on the board of a private Ukrainian gas company. “
