- Former President Trump links fresh revelations about Hunter Biden's business transactions with China to President Biden's perceived inaction over China's ambitions to construct a spy base in Cuba.
- A reported WhatsApp conversation from 2017 allegedly reveals Hunter Biden using his father's name to pressure Henry Zhao, CEO of Harvest Fund Management, to fulfill a commitment, just days before a linked account received over $5 million.
- Despite the intense scrutiny, the Biden administration dismisses claims of a secret agreement between China and Cuba, terming the issue as pre-existing and ongoing.
At a recent Washington D.C. gala, former President Donald Trump drew attention to freshly exposed details concerning Hunter Biden’s business endeavors, linking these to what he perceives as President Biden’s nonintervention concerning China’s ambitions to establish a spy base in Cuba.
Trump's commentary followed allegations made by an IRS whistleblower, who claimed the agency intercepted a 2017 WhatsApp communication from Hunter Biden to Henry Zhao, the CEO of Harvest Fund Management. In this alleged exchange, Hunter Biden appeared to use his father's presence as leverage, pressing Zhao to uphold a prior commitment.
In the WhatsApp message, Hunter Biden is quoted as saying: "I am sitting here with my father, and we need clarification as to why the agreed commitment hasn't been carried out. We want to address this before it escalates, and when I say now, I mean tonight."
The young Biden proceeded to stress that if anyone other than the individuals he named attempted to interfere, he would ensure, with the help of those in his father's circle, that they regretted their actions. Days following this exchange, an account linked to Hunter Biden saw an infusion of over $5 million.
Connecting the dots, Trump pointed to these revelations while questioning President Biden's passive stance on reports of China's plans to build a spy base in Cuba. He suggested the significant sums received from China may be influencing Biden's indifference towards China's military activities in Cuba.
Trump didn't shy away from marking the severity of these allegations, comparing them to the Watergate scandal and describing Biden as a compromised president. He hypothesized that past business transactions might be shaping Biden’s current policies.
Despite Trump's scathing accusations, the Biden administration has downplayed the reports of a clandestine agreement between China and Cuba to set up an eavesdropping facility. An official from the administration emphasized that this is a longstanding issue, predating their time in office.
