In a recent campaign rally in Erie, Pennsylvania, former President Donald Trump urged Congress to halt further military aid to Ukraine. This call comes in light of allegations of corrupt ties involving President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, with the Eastern European nation. Trump addressed thousands of supporters, expressing dissatisfaction with the lack of action from Republicans in the face of emerging allegations of Democrat wrongdoing.
Trump criticized the Republicans for their inaction, stating, “The biggest complaint that I get is that the Republicans find out this information and then they do nothing about it!” He further added that any Republican who does not act on Democrat fraud should be immediately primaried.
The former president praised some Republican lawmakers for their efforts to uncover information about the alleged $10 million bribery scheme involving the Bidens and a Ukrainian energy boss. These allegations were released by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) on July 20, based on information from a confidential informant to the FBI. The White House has dismissed these allegations as “claims that have been debunked for years.”
Trump argued that the current president is compromised and is dragging the US into a global conflict on behalf of Ukraine, the same country that allegedly paid his family millions of dollars. He called for a halt on further assistance to Ukraine until the FBI, IRS, and Department of Justice release all evidence they have about the Bidens’ dealings with Ukrainian authorities.
The former president also criticized the media for their lack of coverage on these allegations, comparing the Bidens’ alleged scams to those of Hillary Clinton, his 2016 Democrat rival. He also expressed his dissatisfaction with the way Republicans have responded to Democrat-led persecutions, including the two failed impeachment attempts against him during his presidency.
Trump also hinted at the possibility of his participation in a debate with his Republican rivals on August 23, although he has not made a commitment yet. He asked his supporters for their opinion on whether he should participate in the debate, to which the audience responded with a resounding “No!”
Towards the end of his speech, Trump questioned whether Biden would be the Democrats’ presidential nominee in 2024, given the bribery allegations and concerns about his fitness to withstand another term as president. The audience responded with a “No,” suggesting that they believe someone else would be the Democrats’ presidential nominee.
