US Election debates 2020: Donald Trump Jr has called Joe Biden a 'DC swamp creature'
The Trump son made the remarks in an interview with ABC News ahead of the election debates. Donald Trump Jr also attacked Mr Biden’s record as a senator and defended his father over recent controversy around his tax returns.
Mr Trump, echoing the President’s 2016 promise to “drain the swamp” in Washington” savaged Mr Biden’s record.
He said: “He’s been a DC swamp creature for half a century.”
He also directed attacks at Hunter Biden over a conspiracy the Biden family are linked to China.
Mr Trump added the media does not talk enough about Mr Biden’s previous actions as a senator, and said “we’ve got to talk about record.”
Referencing the bombshell report from the New York Times claiming the President only paid $750 in taxes for 2016 and 2017, Mr Trump launched another attack on Mr Biden.
He added: “The reality is this, if people have a problem with the tax code, talk to Joe Biden.
“He’s the guy who’s been legislating these thing for 47 years.”
ABC News interviewer George Stephanopoulos pointed out the current president oversaw the latest tax bill.
