Trump campaign adviser Jason Miller has vowed President Trump will bring up the Hunter Biden email story at Thursday night’s third and final presidential debate.
“I think Joe Biden is compromised,” Miller claimed. “Joe Biden has now dodged this multiple times.”
Miller went on to suggest that if the debate moderator isn’t willing to bring up the controversial story, President Trump will.
“If Kristen Welker, the moderator, doesn’t bring it up, I think you’re pretty safe to assume that the president will,” he suggested. “Again, these are real simple questions.”
The emails in question were first published in the New York Post.
The Post claims that the emails show that Biden’s son may have introduced the then-vice president to a top executive at the Ukrainian natural gas firm Burisma Holdings.
Most media outlets declined to cover the story or independently verify the emails.

Trump Will Bring Up Hunter Biden Emails at Debate
“We were supposed to have a debate largely focused on foreign policy this next Thursday, which would be perfect especially as we talk about the issue of Joe Biden potentially being compromised,” Miller said.
“I wish we were spending a lot more time going into foreign policy, especially as President Trump has these peace deals that he’s able to point to.”
The President’s son was not pleased with reports on the topic shift either.
The Presidential Debates Commission is a disgrace
1st they chose a Biden intern that was fired for lying about being hacked
Next moderator is a “former” Dem operative
Now they eliminate little things like Foreign Policy form the debate to save Joe from his corruption.

The commission is including the topic of “National Security” in the debate format, however.
“We do know that Joe Biden lied to the American public when he said he never discussed his son Hunter’s business dealings,” Miller claimed, citing no evidence.
“Joe Biden has not come out and himself denied any of these allegations,” he continued, “think we’re going to hear a lot more about this on Thursday at the debate.”
President Trump will highlight his record of keeping America safe in this week’s debate.

Media Seemingly More Concerned About Biden’s Ice Cream
While the media seem uninterested in either confirming or disputing the New York Post story, some reporters are focused more trivial things.
Biden visited a Cook Out in Durham, North Carolina on Sunday, ordering milkshakes for him and his granddaughter.
In video, a reporter gleefully shouts out, “Mr. Biden, Mr. Biden, what flavor did you get?!”

An additional video shows one reporter tried to ask about the FBI investigation, a question which sent Biden scurrying away.
In the video, you can hear what are presumably other reporters laughing at the question.

Note how Biden was more than willing to discuss milkshakes with the happy reporters but when the topic switched to the Hunter Biden story, he immediately walked off.
Journalists used to use that as a cue to start asking even more questions.
Instead, expect the President to have to force the narrative at the next debate.
