Former President Trump slammed Hunter Biden during his Fox News Town Hall in Iowa on Wednesday night calling him out for selling his artwork for large sums of money.

“I don’t get $8 million for doing nothing like Hunter,” Trump said. “I don’t get I don’t get $500,000. I don’t get $500,000 for doing a painting. It’s not a bad idea, I guess, if you can get away with it. When I heard that when I said there’s no way they get away with that. But they got away with that. I guess they got away with it.”

“Now we have you know, there was an emoluments lawsuit against me where the radical left, sued me for that, and I won the suit.”

Trump was responding to a question on accusations from Democrats that he illegally profited from his businesses during his time in office.


“I own hotels, all over the, I don’t get free money,” Trump said. “Somebody rents a hotel room, etc, etc. Much money I gave back. In fact, I didn’t have to do it. You know, George Washington was a very rich man. People don’t know that, in his essentially White House, which wasn’t built, but they had an office, he had a business desk and he had a country desk right next to each other. You’re allowed to do that. I didn’t do it.”

“I put everything in trust. And if I have a hotel and somebody comes in from China, that’s a small amount of money. And it sounds like a lot of money. That’s a small. But I was doing services for that. People were staying in these massive hotels, these beautiful hotels, because I have the best hotels, I have the best clubs, I have the best clubs, I have great stuff and they stay there and they pay.”

Fox News Digital reached out to Hunter Biden’s legal team for comment but did not immediately receive a response.


Republican investigators have suggested they are suspicious over whether Hunter Biden’s art career, which began in recent years, has led to any conflicts of interest between wealthy buyers and the White House.

Hunter Biden’s art dealer told lawmakers in the House of Representatives on Tuesday that he has never discussed the paintings with the White House seemingly contradicting past statements from the White House on that matter.

Trump previously blasted the Justice Department’s Hunter Biden indictment in mid September as the “only crime” that doesn’t “implicate” the President Joe Biden.

Biden’s son was indicted on Sept. 14 for making false statements and unlawfully possessing a firearm.

Trump claimed in a Truth Social post at the time that the gun charge was “the only crime that Hunter Biden committed that does not implicate Crooked Joe Biden.”

Hunter Biden, in an indictment filed in federal court in Delaware by a special counsel overseeing the case, was accused of lying about his drug use when he purchased a weapon in 2018, during a time when he’s acknowledged struggling with a crack cocaine addiction.

Late in the year, Trump took another shot at Hunter Biden for skipping his closed-door congressional deposition in mid December and joked that the presidential scion “went to the wrong place” on Capitol Hill.The former president joked that Hunter went to the Senate side of the U.S. Capitol when he should have gone to the House side.
