‘I have no comment on Trump’: Biden refuses to answer multiple questions regarding the former president’s impeachment
- Biden will not comment on Trump’s indictment
- “I have no comment on Trump,” he said.
- The White House declined to comment on the former president’s cases
President Joe Biden on Friday declined to comment on the indictment of Donald Trump.
“I have no comment on Trump,” he told reporters at the White House.
The president refused to talk about his predecessor despite being asked several times. He also did not acknowledge questions about whether he was concerned about the protesters or the violence in the wake of the indictment.
The White House has consistently declined to comment on any of Trump’s cases, pursuing a strategy of remaining silent and out of the way as legal action moves forward.
President Joe Biden said he had no comment on Donald Trump’s indictment
Biden has been asked four times about Trump’s historic indictment but has repeatedly refused to respond.
A reporter asked if the indictment would divide the country.
“I have no comment on that,” said the president.
Another reporter asked if he was worried about protesters in the wake of the indictment.
‘no. Biden said: I’m not going to talk about Trump’s indictment.
Asked what was stated in the indictment regarding the rule of law, the president replied, “I have absolutely no comment.”
Another reporter attempted to ask if the accusations were politically motivated.
“I have no comment on Trump,” Biden said.
Then he walked over to Marine One, which was waiting on the South Lawn with the First Lady already on board.
The former president was indicted by a grand jury in Manhattan on Thursday on charges related to the payment of money to porn star Stormy Daniels. The exact fee has not been revealed yet but reports suggest that there are more than 30 accounts involved.
Trump, 76, will be summoned in Manhattan at 2:15 p.m. on Tuesday. He has denied any wrongdoing.
He had previously called for protests amid reports of an indictment. He has warned of “death and destruction” if indicted.
The former president has also repeatedly attacked the judicial system and claimed it was the victim of being weaponized – a line of attack echoed by many of his Republican supporters.
He continued this argument after news of his conviction was dropped, arguing that it would backfire on Biden.
“I believe this witch hunt is going to backfire on Joe Biden,” he said in a statement Thursday night. The American people know exactly what the ultra-left Democrats are doing here. Everyone can see it.
Trump leads opinion polls to be the Republican candidate in the presidential race next year. A new poll on Thursday shows he has the support as GOP voters sympathize with him.
