Trump Jr. accuses Biden of using TikTok to divert attention from his family's connections to China

The son of the former Republican president said the president is trying to appear tough on the Asian giant.

This Friday, Donald Trump Jr. spoke about the financial ties that President Joe Biden's family appears to have with Chinese companies, and accused the president of trying to divert attention from the issue by using TikTok as a scapegoat.

Former President Donald Trump's son gave his thoughts on how Joe Biden has dealt with the recent news of financial records revealing that members of the president's family received more than $1 million from the account of a business associate of Hunter Biden's who obtained the money from a Chinese company.

According to Trump Jr., the president decided to divert attention from the ties between his family and China, making it appear that he is taking tougher measures against the Asian giant.

"Biden is getting smoked by China everywhere that matters, and now we find out that Hunter Biden, Hallie Biden and no-telling-what-other Bidens got over $1 million from some supposed Chinese business ventures. So, his handlers are like, ‘We’ve got to come up with a way to seem like we’re tough on China. Oh, we’ve got it, sir. There’s an app where kids record dances; we should ban it," he told Fox News.

Trump Jr. clarified that he is in favor of taking actions that will prevent China from further influencing Americans and stealing their data. In fact, he stressed that he agrees that the U.S. should "get tough on TikTok regulations."

However, he explained that he cannot take Biden seriously when he does not address these same issues with other applications that would continue to allow China to access Americans' information.

""It’s a fake tough guy act," he said.

Trump Jr. also referred to the way in which the media seem to have downplayed the news of financial records and Biden's relatives, pointing out that if his family had been involved with Chinese business enterprises, the media would have made a "wall-to-wall coverage denouncing corruption."
