Jill Biden: Trump’s Attacks on My Dear Children Are ‘DISGRACEFUL’

Jill Biden says President Trump's attacks on her children are disgraceful

Former second lady Jill Biden slammed President Trump’s criticism about her stepson Hunter Biden as “disgraceful.”

Appearing on MSNBC on Monday, host Nicolle Wallace asked Jill about the President’s ongoing attacks against the Biden family in relation to their corrupt dealings in Ukraine.

“You’ve been in the center of the beginnings of the primaries, but also of the national story in Washington, the impeachment trial of Donald J. Trump. How have those two things collided for your family on the campaign trail?” Wallace asked.

Biden responded, “Well, you know, it’s been a little difficult. I’m a mother. I know you’re a mother. It’s hard when you see your kids attacked. But I think that voters realized this is about Donald Trump. It’s not about my son Hunter or my husband, and I think it’s disgraceful what Donald Trump has done. And we know this is all a distraction.”

Jill added Trump’s attacks could be a rallying cry for supporters.

“The bottom line I think for most Iowans is they want to beat Donald Trump. That’s the bottom line,” she added. “And so if Donald Trump is doing this because he is afraid of my husband, then that turns out to be a good thing for Joe because they’re getting behind him, and they’re supporting him.”
