Donald Trump’s son on Sunday claimed Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden will not be good for India as he could be soft on China, reported PTI. Donald Trump Junior is leading the re-election campaign of his 74-year-old father. The United States presidential elections are slated to be held on November 3.
“We have to understand the threat of China and no one knows that probably better than Indian-Americans,” Trump Jr told community members at an event in Long Island, New York. The event was held to celebrate the success of his book on graft allegations against the Bidens.
“When you look at our opponents in this race you think the Chinese gave Hunter Biden [Joe Biden’s son] USD 1.5 billion because he was a great businessman, or because they knew the Bidens could be bought, and therefore soft on China,” he said. “Therefore, [Joe Biden is] bad for India.” Trump Jr was referring to the latest allegations of corruption against the Biden family as revealed by New York Post.
There is an estimated four million Indian-American population of which about 2.5 million are potential voters in the upcoming presidential elections, according to PTI. Over 1.3 million Indian-Americans are voters in key battleground states, including Texas, Michigan, Florida and Pennsylvania.
Last week, a survey on the expected voting behaviour showed that Indian-Americans are likely to support Biden in the elections. According to the survey, 72% of registered Indian American voters are planning on voting for Biden, while 22% said that they will vote for Trump.
