Former President Donald Trump shared his thoughts on Hunter Biden’s indictment during an interview with “Meet the Press” on Thursday, before delving into a discussion about his own legal challenges.
Trump expressed his discontent with the situation, saying, “I mean, nobody should be happy about this. I’m not happy about it. Nobody is. It’s a very sad thing. It’s so bad for our country,” during an interview with Kristen Welker, who was filling in for Chuck Todd on the program.
The former president, who is currently facing four criminal cases of his own, continued, “But you know, if you think about it, I’ve been under investigation from the day I came down the escalator. A phony investigation. Fake investigations. Investigations that I beat every single time. Still under investigations. But it’s a very sad thing. And it’s a slippery slope, and dangerous, very dangerous for our country.”
Trump’s comments followed the federal grand jury indictment of President Joe Biden’s son on three gun charges.
Earlier in the interview, Welker asked Trump if he still believed there are “two systems of justice” in light of the Hunter Biden news.
“Well, I think there’s no question about it,” Trump replied. He and his allies maintain that he has been subjected to selective prosecution within the justice system.
Trump is currently facing 91 charges across four criminal cases, including charges related to his attempts to overturn the 2020 election.
Discussing Hunter Biden’s plea deal that fell apart in July, Trump remarked, “He had a plea deal that was the deal of the century. The art of the deal, you could write a book on it — ‘The Art of the Deal’ — and all of a sudden it was broken up by a judge who was able to — a brilliant judge, actually — who was able to see through what was happening.”
