Hunter Biden: What was he doing in Ukraine and China?
President Donald Trump has repeatedly accused his Democratic White House challenger Joe Biden of wrongdoing in regards to Ukraine and China while he was vice-president, which he denies.
The issue has resurfaced following a New York Post article about an alleged email in which an adviser from a Ukrainian energy company apparently thanked Mr Biden’s son, Hunter, for inviting him to meet his father.
Asked about the allegations, Joe Biden told a reporter it was a “smear campaign”.
Claims of influence-peddling are common in Washington DC and Mr Trump’s children have also been accused of conflicts of interest in lucrative business deals overseas. They, too, deny wrongdoing.
Mr Biden will face Mr Trump, a Republican, in next month’s presidential election.
