Donald Trump Trolls Joe Biden on Corruption During His ‘Impeach’ Speech

China has reportedly rejected President Donald Trump's request to investigate Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, with officials saying the country doesn't want to get involved in us domestic politics.

"It is unacceptable for any social media company to knowingly allow deliberately misleading material to corrupt its platform", Biden spokesman TJ Ducklo said in a statement.

"We're not going to let Donald Trump pick the Democratic nominee for president", Biden declared.

"Only 25 per cent want the President Impeached, which is pretty low considering the volume of Fake News coverage, but pretty high considering the fact that I did NOTHING wrong", Trump tweeted. The call was part of a whistleblower's complaint against the president, which led to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's announcement late last month of a formal impeachment inquiry into Trump.

Before Biden had concluded in New Hampshire, Trump retorted via Twitter.

The Biden campaign's original letter to Facebook - addressed to founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg, COO Sheryl Sandberg and Facebook Public Policy Director, Global Elections Katie Harbath - told the social media company it is "on notice" for the "absolute falsity" of the claims in the campaign ad. "I haven't got to Romania. He's picked a fight with the wrong guy".

But in a campaign speech in Rochester, N.H., Biden was unequivocal, saying that "to preserve our Constitution, our democracy, our basic integrity, [Trump] should be impeached". We see it in Trump's own words.

If Biden didn't have a clear conflict of interest as President Obama's point man in Ukraine during the time his son Hunter happened to join the board of a Ukrainian energy company, the L.A. Times' on-the-ground story shows a damning appearance of such conflict.

In his speech, Biden noticeably did not mention the Senate or its potential role in deciding Trump's fate.

Biden acknowledged that he pressured Ukraine to fire Shokin, but denied that it had any relation to his son's business dealings in the country and was in line with pressure from other foreign leaders to fire the prosecutor. "He got fired. And they put in place someone who was solid at the time", he said.

One undecided voter, Virginia Schonwald, a 63-year-old retired school librarian, said she Biden was "very fact-based and that he was forceful".

"He's claiming to have a lot of evidence about corruption in the Ukraine that ties back to the Democrats that's apart from what the House is looking at", Graham said.

"I don't think I was when I got here", she said.
