President Donald Trump’s trade adviser Peter Navarro was called out in real time Sunday morning after trying to smear the son of former Vice President Joe Biden during an interview on ABC’s “This Week.”
Speaking from the lawn in front of the White House, Navarro claimes that Hunter Biden took a billion dollars from the Chinese.
“Joe Biden has forty years of sucking up to the Chinese, including 8 years as vice president. We already know about the billion dollars that his son took from the Chinese,” he said.
“That’s just not a fact,” ABC host George Stephanopoulos shot back as Navarro shrugged and smirked. “That is not factual. That is just not a fact. He did not take in a billion dollars.”
“Went into that hedge fund. But be that as it may, this election is going to be a referendum on China,” Navarro argued as Stephanopoulos looked on with a grimace.
