BUSTED! Biden Camp Tweets, Deletes De-Bunked Story Over Trump’s Financial Ties to China

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.27.20

Prominent Democrats -including former Vice President Joe Biden’s 2020 campaign- pushed a phony story over the weekend accusing President Trump of owing financial debt to the Bank of China; tweeting then deleting the baseless allegations.

“Politico quietly updated a story after first claiming that President Donald Trump currently ‘owes millions to the Bank of China’ Friday,” reports the Daily Caller. “The publication posted an article Friday suggesting President Donald Trump currently ‘owes’ millions of dollars to the Bank of China, adding that ‘the loan is due soon.’ Politico was forced to quietly edit its story after it was determined that Trump apparently did not currently owe the Bank of China millions of dollars.”

“After the first version of this article was published, the Bank of China issued a statement Friday evening stating that it sold its debt on the building weeks after the 2012 loan on the property,” Politico’s current article admits. “Vornado Realty Trust owns 70 percent of the building.”

“This article and headline were updated to include comment from the Bank of China and additional reporting,” the website later admitted.

AXELROD ON BIDEN: ‘He Either Can Cut It, Or He Can’t’

posted by Hannity Staff - 8.15.19

Democratic strategist David Axelrod weighed-in Thursday on Joe Biden’s potentially reduced campaign schedule; saying “this is bad advice” and claiming the former Vice President can “either cut it or he can’t.”

“This is bad advice. You can’t cloister the candidate and win. He either can cut it or he can’t, and the only way he can prove he can is to be an active and vigorous candidate. He’s running for president of the United States, for God’s sake!” posted Axelrod on social media.

Allies and political insiders close to Joe Biden are reportedly telling the former Vice President to scale back his campaign stops and speaking events; hoping the reduced schedule will minimize future speaking gaffes.

“Allies to Joe Biden have been floating the idea of altering the former vice president’s schedule in an effort to reduce the gaffes he has made in recent days,” reports The Hill. “The allies, growing increasingly nervous about Biden’s verbal flubs, have said it’s an approach that’s been suggested to campaign officials on the heels of the former vice president’s stumbles.”

“He needs to be a strong force on the campaign trail, but he also has to pace himself,” said one insider.

“I think you’ll see the same schedule and maybe even more Joe Biden,” one ally said. “Everyone wants to see Joe Biden be Joe Biden. If he’s held back in any way, that’s almost the antithesis of who he is.”

“I think it’s the wrong approach,” they added.

“Joe Biden has spoken his mind his entire life, which voters know and love about him,” said Biden’s deputy campaign manager. “He’s a real person, he’s authentic, and that will never change. He’s going to keep taking on Trump and making the case to voters about the stakes we face in this election, regardless of how the press chooses to cover him.”

President Trump routinely refers to Biden as “sleepy Joe.”

AXELROD: Joe Biden in Serious Danger of ‘Serially Distorting His Own Record’

Former senior Obama advisor David Axelrod weighed-in on Joe Biden’s recent speaking gaffes on the campaign trail this week; saying the Democratic frontrunner is in serious danger of “serially distorting his own record.”

“It’s one thing to have a well-earned rep for goofy, harmless gaffes. It’s another if you serially distort your own record. @JoeBiden is in danger of creating a more damaging meme,” posted Axelrod on social media.

Axelrod made similar comments earlier this year, saying Biden can “either cut it or he can’t” after reports the former Vice President was reducing his campaign schedule to minimize mistakes.

“This is bad advice. You can’t cloister the candidate and win. He either can cut it or he can’t, and the only way he can prove he can is to be an active and vigorous candidate. He’s running for president of the United States, for God’s sake!” posted Axelrod on social media.
