‘I’m not going anywhere, Trump will not destroy me and my family!’ Furious Joe Biden vows amid the Ukraine impeachment scandalÂ
Democratic Party frontrunner for the US Presidential election, Joe Biden, has reacted to US President Donald Trump’s latest corruption allegations against him and his son, saying he has no plans to go ‘anywhere’.
Biden, former Vice President under Barack Obama has been the subject of a series of blasts from Trump and the Republican party after the Democrats began impeachment proceedings against Trump last week for allegedly pressuring a vulnerable ally in Ukraine to investigate Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, over corruption allegations before they could receive $400m military aid from the U.S.
According to Trump, Biden used his vice-presidential powers to enforce the sack of a prosecutor who was investigating his son, Hunter, over corruption allegations while he was a board director at Ukranian energy company, Burisma Holdings.
Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani also claimed in recent TV interviews that Biden was not only corrupt in dealings with Ukraine but also dealings with China, leading Biden’s legal team to serve papaers to news organizations and TV networks to stop granting Giuliani interviews.
Trump took to his Twitter handle to share a video of the Bidens with a Ukranian gas executive and circled their heads with a love emoji, calling the Bidens ‘stone crooked’, but Biden has rejected such claims saying he and his son are innocent and that Trump’s plans to harm him politically won’t work.
”Let me make something clear to Trump and his hatchet men and the special interests funding his attacks against me,’ Biden said in prepared remarks ahead of an appearance in Reno, Nevada, on Wednesday night, U.S time.
‘I’m not going anywhere. You’re not going to destroy me. And you’re not going to destroy my family.
‘I don’t care how much money you spend or how dirty the attacks get,’ said Biden.
During a joint press conference with Finland’s president, Sauli Niinistö, Trump said he brought up Biden and his son’s dealings with Ukraine in the July phone call with Ukraine’s president Zelensky because as the president he had a duty to report corruption.
Biden, in return, accused Trump of abuse of power;
‘He did it (pressure Ukraine’s presient to investigate Biden) because, like every bully in history – he’s afraid,’
‘He’s afraid of just how badly I would beat him next November.’
