Donald Trump will hit President Biden hard on China during remarks at the North Carolina Republican state convention tonight, according to leaked excerpts of the speech.
“Sadly, the current administration is so timid and corrupt that instead of holding China accountable, the Biden Administration shut down the U.S. government investigation into the origins of the virus shortly after taking office,” former President Trump is expected to say.
The public remarks — which have become increasingly rare since Trump left office in January — will also go after Biden’s family connections to China, which were first made public in a series of reports by The Post in October.
“We must never forget that Joe Biden and his family took millions of dollars from the Chinese Communist Party, they bought him off, he flagrantly lied about it to American Voters, and now Joe Biden is doing China’s bidding in the White House,” Trump is expected to say. “Remember, Hunter Biden was given at least $1.5 billion dollars to manage by China, and that’s only the money we know about.”
Those close to Trump cautioned that the leaked words are from a final draft, and noted the garrulous former president often ad-libs.
Since leaving the White House, Trump has been in political exile at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida and more recently his golf club in Bedminster, N.J. Though he remains totally banned on US social media, he continues to exert enormous sway over the Republican Party and frequently receives the GOP’s highest officials, who regularly come to pay homage.
Trump’s long-term plans continue to remain a mystery and he has still not ruled out a 2024 run for the White House.
