Biden criticized for omitting son Hunter’s foreign ties during economic-themed speech

While Democratic presidential nominee touted a “made in America” theme during a recent campaign event, he is being accused of misleading those in attendance regarding his own son’s foreign entanglements.

The former vice president failed to mention that Hunter Biden farmed out jobs to China, Europe, South America, and Mexico, as reported by Breitbart.

“Should be an expectation”

Biden’s remarks came during a campaign stop in Michigan on Wednesday.

During the small rally, he stated that his administration’s goal would be to “make it in Michigan, make it in America, invest in our communities and the workers in places like Warren.”

He went on to assert that the ability of Americans to find a good job “shouldn’t be a lottery” but “should be an expectation.”

While his rhetoric likely resonated with many who watched his speech, they might not know his son sat on the board of BHR, a company that acquired Michigan-based Henniges Automotive for $600 million.

Biden was vice president when the Obama administration approved the deal, which is ranked among the largest Chinese acquisitions of a U.S. automotive company in the nation’s history.

Complicated family ties

Furthermore, a company that partnered with BHR in the acquisition — Aviation Industry Corporation of China — has been sanctioned a total of five times by the American government for military technology violations. Nevertheless, Biden attempted to place the blame for vanishing auto industry jobs on his general-election rival, as reported by the Associated Press.

“Under Donald Trump, Michigan lost auto jobs even before COVID hit,” he said. “And what about offshoring? Has Trump delivered on stopping companies from shipping American jobs overseas? You already know the answer. Of course not.”

Meanwhile, Trump’s re-election campaign continues his administration’s focus on an America-first agenda that takes a comprehensive view of the economic and security risks facing the nation around the globe.

“Wise leaders always put the good of their own people and their own country first,” Trump said during a 2019 address of the United Nations General Assembly. “The future does not belong to globalists. The future belongs to patriots.”

When voters make their choice on Election Day, they will have to determine which candidate is the most sincere in their rhetorical pledges to put America’s interests above all else. The president’s first-term record should help undecided Americans reach a decision.
