Maintaining there is no grounds to suggest an impeachment inquiry, Trump has now asked China to look into Joe Biden’s son as well. Speaking to the press today, Trump said:
China should start an investigation into the Bidens because what happened with China is just as bad as what happened with Ukraine…I’m sure that President Xi [Jinping] does not like being under that kind of scrutiny where billions of dollars is taken out of his country by a guy that just got kicked out of the Navy.
Regarding Hunter Biden and China, Trump was referencing, amongst other things, a 2013 trip Joe Biden took to Beijing while Vice President on Air Force Two in which Hunter Biden tagged along.

Exact money figures are disputed, however The Washington Post reported the firm behind the fund “planned to raise $1.5 billion” but Hunter Biden’s lawyer denied the claim, saying his client only bought a “10 percent equity interest” that was only worth $430,000.
