The Democrats’ attempt to impeach and remove Donald Trump from office could very well sink their chances at retaking the White House in 2020, and for a myriad of reasons.
The first and most obvious impact of their failed attempt to usurp the Commander in Chief is that the victory has given Donald Trump a rather large feather in his cap heading into 2020. He’s riding a wave of nigh-invincibility with just months remaining until America heads to the polls.
But even more salient an issue is the subject matter of his impeachment.
Trump was investigated by House Democrats for his purported attempts to extort Ukraine into opening an investigation into the business dealings of the Biden family within their borders. The left saw this as an attempt to solicit foreign election interference, while Trump and his team maintained that this was merely an exercise in keeping corruption at bay within an allied nation who relies on us for military aid.
And while Trump was acquitted by the Senate, the Biden family was not, and questions remains as to how much nepotism was at play in Hunter Biden’s landing of a cushy board of directors gig with Ukrainian natural gas company Burisma.
The President’s son would like to get to the bottom of this question, and he’s hoping to do so very publicly.
Donald Trump Jr. on Sunday said he wanted to debate former vice president Joe Biden’s son Hunter over who has used their father’s government position to benefit financially.
Trump Jr. challenged Hunter via Twitter and during an interview with Axios, adding that he is willing to release his taxes if the former VP’s son makes his public as well.
Citing his interview with Axios on Twitter, President Donald Trump’s eldest son declared:
“The [mainstream media] loves making a false equivalency between us, so let’s settle it: I challenge Hunter Biden to man up & debate me. Hunter releases his tax returns & I release mine. Let’s have an open [conversation] about who really profited from their father’s public office!”
It is highly unlikely that former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign would allow something like this to occur, particularly as the elder Biden maintains only a slight lead over rival Democrat Bernie Sanders in electoral polling.
