On Sunday, President Trump hosted a rally in Carson City, where he referred to the Biden family as a Criminal Enterprise. “Did you see what’s happening with Biden? He’s a corrupt politician,”
At one point during the rally, a supporter shouted out “Lock her up”, to which Trump responded, “no, lock him up.”!
“Joe Biden is and always has been a corrupt politician,” Trump declared. “He always has been. And as far as I’m concerned, the Biden family is a criminal enterprise. It really is.”
President Trump lashed out at Joe Biden by praising the New York Post for their report on the corrupt business dealings of Hunter Biden and Joe Biden during his time as Vice President. Trump appeared to mock Biden for urging him to “listen to the scientists” in his handling of the coronavirus pandemic, telling the crowd, that “If I listened to the scientists, we would have a country right now that would be in a massive depression.” Fox News Reported.
“Now,” Trump added, “We’re like a rocketship. Look at the [economic] numbers.”

Biden campaign spokesperson Andrew Bates responded to the president’s remarks, telling Fox News in a statement that “Donald Trump tanked the strong economy he inherited from the Obama-Biden Administration by continually discounting and attacking warnings from the scientific and medical experts working around the clock to save lives.”
“Now,” Bates said, “new coronavirus cases are surging and layoffs are rising. If Donald Trump had listened to Joe Biden when he urged him not to trust the Chinese government over his own scientific advisers about this crisis, he wouldn’t be the worst jobs president since 1929.”
“Hunter Biden laptop, emails ‘not part of some Russian disinformation campaign”
Director of National Intelligence John Ratcliffe on Monday said that Hunter Biden’s laptop “is not part of some Russian disinformation campaign,” amid claims from House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff suggesting otherwise. Fox News reported.
“It’s funny that some of the people who complain the most about intelligence being politicized are the ones politicizing the intelligence,” Ratcliffe said. “Unfortunately, it is Adam Schiff who said the intelligence community believes the Hunter Biden laptop and emails on it are part of a Russian disinformation campaign.”
He added: “Let me be clear: the intelligence community doesn’t believe that because there is no intelligence that supports that. And we have shared no intelligence with Adam Schiff or any member of Congress.”
Ratcliffe went on to say that it is “simply not true.” Fox News reported.
“Hunter Biden’s laptop is not part of some Russian disinformation campaign,” Ratcliffe said, adding again that “this is not part of some Russian disinformation campaign.”
House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff over the weekend described the emails as being part of a smear coming “from the Kremlin,”.
“We know that this whole smear on Joe Biden comes from the Kremlin,” Schiff said on CNN. “That’s been clear for well over a year now that they’ve been pushing this false narrative about this vice president and his son.”
Ratcliffe’s assessment was backed up by a senior intelligence official.
“Ratcliffe is 100% correct,” the senior intelligence official told Fox News. “There is no intelligence at this time to support Chairman Schiff’s statement that recent stories on Biden’s foreign business dealings are part of a smart campaign that ‘comes from the Kremlin.’ Numerous foreign adversaries are seeking to influence American politics, policies, and media narratives. They don’t need any help from politicians who spread false information under the guise of intelligence.”
