Hunter Biden Controversy

   Hunter Biden, son of presidential candidate Joe Biden, has been making headlines for various allegations regarding his past business relationships. He has been accused of making business deals with foreign entities, causing the public to wonder if the Biden family is guilty of wrongdoing. Former Vice President Biden denies the allegations brought against him and his son, but the topic has not been resolved and continues to be widely discussed. 

   It is not uncommon for politicians to use the family of their opponents against them, and this presidential election has been no different. Hunter and the Biden family were brought up by President Trump in both presidential debates, and it has been a headline on most major news networks. During the second debate, President Trump raised allegations that Hunter and his father made money in a business scheme in China, and former Vice President Biden said he had, “Not taken a penny,” from any foreign country. 

   Hunter Biden has always been under a microscope. As the son of a long-time politician, this is not the first time he has been in the news. He was discharged from the Navy after testing positive for cocaine. He also had a relationship with his brother’s widow. Hunter’s personal life and his past choices have given the public some reason to believe that the recent allegations may be true. It was even mentioned in the first debate, with President Trump saying, “He was thrown out, dishonorably discharged,” referring to Hunter. This issue could sway some voters on November 3 and affect the outcome of the 2020 presidential election.
