SPARTANBURG, S.C. - Joe Biden pledged to erect an "absolute wall" between the presidency and his family's business dealings and said he has never discussed business with relatives, following an event here on Wednesday.
"I have never discussed, with my son or my brother or with anyone else, anything having to do with their businesses. Period," he said. "And what I will do is the same thing we did in our administration. There will be an absolute wall between personal and private [business interests] and the government. There wasnt any hint of scandal at all when we were there. And Im going to propose the same kind of strict, strict rules. Thats why I never talked with my son or my brother or anyone else - even distant family - about their business interests. Period.
The former vice president's comments, in response to a question from POLITICO, come amid allegations that his younger brother James and his son Hunter have sought to use his political connections to enrich themselves, and amid scrutiny of Hunter's business dealings in China and Ukraine.

Way to close that barn door after the horses are all out.
Is lunch bucket a dues payin Union member?
There is nothing suspicious about his son’s business with China. No, not at all.
At least Trump earned his money honestly. You can’t say that about most Dem politicians or their relatives.
Will gropin joe use the same lawyer that hildabeast had draw up her conflict of interest agreement?
how’d that campaign promise work out??
He thinks he’s given himself an asian flu shot.
Sure Joe since your son has made millions from your corruption.
Not a hint of scandal? I suppose the 2016 Clinton / Obama democrat collusion to rig the election with a British double naught spy isnt a scandal.
Old pedo Joe is one piece of work.....LOL.
Keep talking, Joe. We love you. /S
A wall??? Wait, walls can have purpose?
Biden is a child molester and needs a sock in the eye. Please, please, please be the nominee.
The only “absolute wall” is the one blocking his brain from the rest of his body.
“There will be an absolute wall between personal and private [business interests] and the government. “
Will that be like the ‘wall’ that Jamie Gorelock built ?
Sorry Joe, Jamie Gorlick is not there to provide you a wall.
And in other news Biden’s brain surgeon says Biden’s brain is fully functional.
He ain’t gonna be the democrat candidate.
He’s all over the place with stupidity.
“I have never discussed, with my son or my brother or with anyone else, anything having to do with their businesses. Period,” he said.
HE SHOULD HAVE IF HE WAS ETHICAL! conflict of interest or appearance of conflict of interest...
Walls don’t work!
Walls are immoral!
