Trump: I ran for office to fight corruption like Biden's

United States President Donald Trump noted that he ran for president to fight "corruption" in Washington, especially mentioning Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden's alleged wrongdoings as an example.

"For years I've watched one betrayal after another, as politicians like Joe Biden" and "their families raked in millions," Trump said at a campaign event. "If Biden wins, China wins," the president underlined.

According to Trump, in 2015, then-vice president Joe Biden had said he would withhold $1 billion in aid from Ukraine if its government does not fire the prosecutor investigating corruption in a company where his son, Hunter, held a board seat. Trump also stated that Ukraine subsequently dismissed the prosecutor and only then received the funds.
