The Media’s Biden-Trump Shell Game

Independent sources have alleged that as Vice President Joe Biden used his position in an abuse of power influence peddling scheme with his son Hunter to enrich the Biden family and friends. The mainstream news media has essentially passed on the story that includes documentation from Hunter’s computer, emails from Hunter’s former business partner who is serving time in prison for the dealings, and yet another source—the US Senate committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs and the Senate Committee on Finance. The mainstream news media, led by the New York Times, has, however, countered with stories saying President Trump is doing the same thing. Don’t fall for it.

The New York Times points out that President Trump’s tax records indicate that he has bank accounts in China, Britain and Ireland, which he has failed to list on public financial disclosures where he is required to list personal assets. Now this sounds like the president is doing something wrong, especially when the headlines coming out of the story imply that Trump has secret bank accounts in China. The accounts are not listed because they are held under corporate names. The Times reports that the Chinese account is controlled by Trump International Hotels Management L.L.C., which paid $188,561 in taxes in China while “pursuing licensing deals there from 2013 to 2015.” This was before Trump ran for election. twists the story as has other leftist media outlets, reporting: “President Trump and his allies have tried to paint the Democratic nominee, Joseph R. Biden Jr., as soft on China, in part by pointing to his son’s business dealings there. Senate Republicans produced a report asserting, among other things, that Mr. Biden’s son Hunter “opened a bank account” with a Chinese businessman, part of what it said were his numerous connections to “foreign nationals and foreign governments across the globe.” But Mr. Trump’s own business history is filled with overseas financial deals, and some have involved the Chinese state. He spent a decade unsuccessfully pursuing projects in China, operating an office there during his first run for president and forging a partnership with a major government-controlled company.”

Trump’s companies historically have conducted legitimate business internationally, including in Russia and China, among other countries. They pay taxes. They report according to requirements. The Biden’s, however, reportedly have done their business through bribes, making countries pay for access to the White House and other government officials, threatening to withhold foreign aid, and appear to be involved in drug and human trafficking. There is no moral equivalence to the media’s comparison of Biden and Trump. Absolutely none. They seek to deceive you into believing there is. As in Romans 16:18, “For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own appetites; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the unsuspecting.” Don’t be deceived by the media’s Biden-Trump shell game.
