Trump’s Request to Investigate the Biden Declined by China

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden blasted President Donald Trump in a speech Wednesday for being too soft on the Chinese, a departure from his previous dismissal of China as a threat.

Joe Biden's marketing campaign lashed out Wednesday at Fb for refusing to dam an advert from President Donald Trump which the Democratic candidate mentioned included "definitively debunked conspiracy theories" on Biden.

It's been almost two weeks to the day since House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) announced the impeachment inquiry into President Trump, and former Vice President Joe Biden just endorsed the cause. "He has already convicted himself - betrayed this nation and committed impeachable acts".

The speech comes after two weeks of uneven responses from Biden as he and his advisers debated internally the best way to handle Trump's broadsides. The same survey showed almost half (49 percent) of the respondents believe the president should be removed from office, while 44 percent do not.

Geng says Beijing has no intention of intervening in U.S. affairs. "He's laughing at us".

"Only 25 per cent want the President Impeached, which is pretty low considering the volume of Fake News coverage, but pretty high considering the fact that I did NOTHING wrong", Trump tweeted.

Shortly before midnight, Trump highlighted an item from the Washington Examiner's Byron York showing Biden's lead in the Democratic race dwindling and questioning whether the former vice president should still be seen as the frontrunner for his party's 2020 nomination.

In a phone call on 25 July, Mr Trump asked the newly elected Volodymyr Zelensky to scrutinise the former USA vice-president, who is a leading Democratic contender for next year's White House election.

The Biden campaign responded after an exchange with Facebook over a Trump ad which accused Biden of improper dealings with Ukraine while he was vice president.

In 2016, then-Vice President Biden pressured Ukraine to remove its top prosecutor, Viktor Shokin, who had investigated Burisma.

The Biden campaign, in a letter to the social media giant, called the allegations "completely false", CNN reported.

USA election law forbids soliciting or accepting foreign aid in American elections.

Hunter Biden is part of a group that has a 10-percent stake in Megvii Technology through BHR Partners - a cross-border investment arm of China's Bohai Industrial Investment Fund, Fox News said on Tuesday.

"He's trying to create a campaign where truth and facts are irrelevant", Biden said, adding that the spectacle covers the president's "manifest incompetence".

And that, by all appearances, drove Trump to abuse the powers of his office and open the door to his impeachment. The administration, however, has made clear it will not co-operate with Democrats on Capitol Hill and has been resisting requests for documents and testimony from administration officials - all while keeping up the verbal assault on Biden.

His Democratic rivals have also sidestepped the issue, or expressed their support for the former vice president in the face of Trump's unsubstantiated claims. "I haven't got to Romania. He's picked a fight with the wrong guy".

New Hampshire voters go to the polls in February.

"I'm not going to be distracted", he said. "He's supposed to be the leader of the free world".

"He spoke with conviction". (Four percent were undecided.) The same survey found voters virtually split on Trump's removal from office, with 45 percent saying he should be impeached and removed and 49 percent opposing the idea - a divide that falls within the poll's margin of error.
