“Here you have Hunter Biden stepping down from a position in order to make sure even though there’s been no accusation of wrongdoing, doing something just to make sure there’s not even the appearance of conflict of interest,” Buttigieg said.

“While in the White House, the president of the United States is a walking conflict of interest,” he added.

He claimed the president’s relatives use Trump’s presidency to benefit their interactions with foreign governments and that his sons, in particular, pretend “the fact that their father is the president of the United States has no impact on the international business dealings that they do.”

“It is a radically different standard, and we cannot allow this president to change the subject especially with unfounded allegations,” he said.
