Aaaaaannnndd?? A lot of people make money from China Emjay. It's kind of where everything gets made. You can't just endlessly insinuate stuff. The standard of proof has got to be higher.
Pity we don't have a Christopher Steele to help secure surveillance, right? Or a media to whip up the general population into a frenzy over repeated lies.

Or why his hotels should not make money from foreign nationals. :unsure:
Because there is actually an emoluments clause which restricts the president from receiving favors from foreign governments, and Trump is deliberately pushing his hotels and resorts for foreign meetings.

I take it you have seen the minutes? Or are they just rumours?

But this is not an issue at all, right:

Joe Biden took his son Hunter on official trip to China – ten days before communist regime's bank signed deal with private equity firm Biden jnr runs with John Kerry's son, book reveals
  • Joe Biden's son Hunter opened a private equity firm with the step-son of Sen. John Kerry
    [*]Kerry and Biden were colleagues in the Senate for deaces
    [*]Hunter flew to China with his father aboard Air Force Two when the deal got made
    [*]The state-owned Bank of China made a deal with the younger Biden's Rosemont Seneca Partners LLC
    [*]Kerry and Chris Heinz run the $2.4 billion private equity firm
    [*]The deal is explored in a new book by the author of 'Clinton Cash'
    [*]The deal was finalized within days of the visit

Not swampy at all.

What minutes? What rumours? Trump is openly using Mar-a-Lago for official state visits. And it's being upheld by the courts, thus far:

no Person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept of any present, Emolument, Office, or Title, of any kind whatsoever, from any King, Prince, or foreign State
If I didn't know better I'd think that was an MSM link you just sent me. Hey, if it pans out to be true I'll be quite happy. But when the source of this whole story is a book by the editor of Breitbart and his co-author is Steve Bannon I think I'll leave my champagne bottles corked for now.

Virtually none of his allegations about Clinton back then were true. I don’t know all the facts on Biden. The Ukraine allegations have been credibly debunked. On the China stuff relating to Biden’s son Hunter, I don’t know. If there’s something to it, then so be it. But we know enough about Schweizer’s method to be extremely skeptical of any claim by him.

Because attacking the credibility of the reporters isn't the knee-jerk reaction of the MSM when one of their liberal darlings are threatened. :rolleyes:
