US President Donald Trump says there has never been an administration more corrupt than the Obama-Biden administration following explosive documents revealing Hunter Biden's business dealings with a Ukrainian energy company.
"We've just learned through explosive documents published by a very fine newspaper, the New York Post, that Joe Biden has been blatantly lying about his involvement in his son's corrupt business dealings," he said.
Mr Trump said Mr Biden appeared during the presidential debate and denied the claims - stating they had been discredited - but said it was a lie that proved he was a corrupt politician who shouldn't be allowed to run for the presidency.
"This is a big smoking gun. The newly uncovered emails reveal that a top executive from the highly questionable Ukraine company - it's an energy company - which paid Hunter at least $50,000 a month, but it looks like it could be $183,000 a month," he said.
"Despite the fact he had absolutely no experience, knew nothing about energy, wrote to Hunter arranging for a meeting to meet with vice president Joe Biden ... I've been saying this about that family for a long time.
"In other words, Hunter was being paid for access to his vice president father who was specifically put in charge of Ukraine and Russia."
Mr Trump said the Russia hoax turned out to really be a feature of the Democrat's dealings rather than his administration.
"I was pressing Joe Biden to tell the truth because the corrupt lamestream media ... they refused to write the story," he said.
"There wasn't one time in almost four years during my presidency, during the greatest political scandal in US history, a witch hunt ... and people should pay for the crimes they committed ... which turned out to be a total illegal hoax.
"False and libellous stories every day, and they knew they were false too, they were never taken down by Twitter or Facebook or the mainstream media, yet with Biden today, they take negative posts down almost before they even go up."
President Trump pointed to the fact White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany's Twitter account was locked for "reporting the truth" by sharing the Biden article to her feed.
