Debate Questions Biden Must Answer

In Cleveland on Tuesday, President Donald Trump and Joe Biden will face off in the much-anticipated first presidential debate moderated by Fox News’ Chris Wallace. Here are few key questions the veteran journalist should ask the former vice president.

On Hunter Biden:

—Despite having no known expertise in the energy sector, your son Hunter Biden was paid large sums of money to sit on the board of Burmisa, a Ukrainian natural gas company, while you were vice president. Tell us about this financial arrangement and did it have any influence over U.S. foreign policy while you were President Obama’s pointman on Ukraine?

—U.S. Senate committees released an interim report on Wednesday documenting that Hunter Biden received $3.5 million in wire transfers from a Russian billionaire whose husband was the former mayor of Moscow. Nine of the 11 wire transfers were sent to an investment firm co-founded by Hunter. Additionally, records obtained from the U.S. Treasury Department by the GOP-lead Senate committees “show potential criminal activity relating to transactions among and between Hunter Biden, his family and his associates with Ukrainian, Russian, Kazakh and Chinese nationals.”

—What can you disclose about your son’s dealings with foreign governments and officials while you were vice president? And did any of these relationships present a conflict of interest?

—The Senate report also notes some of the financial transactions are linked to what “appears to be an Eastern European prostitution or human trafficking ring.” Is this true?

The coronavirus pandemic:

—Mr. Biden, you and your supporters are blaming President Trump for his handling of the coronavirus, a worldwide pandemic that originated in China and has to date taken over 200,000 American lives. Yet, while you were vice president, the H1N1 flu pandemic infected 60 million Americans and killed thousands of Americans. No one blamed you or President Obama for it. If you believe the current administration is responsible for every fatality during a pandemic, does that mean you and the Obama administration are also responsible for the 12,469 Americans who died from H1N1 on your watch?

—On numerous occasions, you’ve said that if elected president, then you, in contrast to President Trump, will listen to the scientists and the “experts.” What happens if the “experts” are wrong? For example, last January, the World Health Organization — which you and the Democratic establishment fully support —downplayed the virus. On Jan. 14, the WHO tweeted, “Preliminary investigations conducted by the Chinese authorities have found no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of the novel #coronavirus (2019-nCoV) identified in #Wuhan, #China.” We now know that’s 100% false. The virus is highly contagious, spreading to 213 countries and killing nearly 1 million people globally. If you’re elected president, will you blindly listen to the so-called experts or think for yourself and make your own decisions?

Foreign policy:

—In addition to voting for the Iraq War while a U.S. senator, on your watch while vice president, ISIS established a caliphate, killed and tortured Americans and spread its deadly tentacles around the world. Syrian Dictator Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons against its people while approximately 500,000 perished during its brutal civil war. China’s trade abuses against the U.S. were left unchecked. Russia annexed Crimea and invaded Ukraine. North Korea and Iran advanced their nuclear weapons programs. Four Americans were killed in Benghazi — including a U.S. ambassador — and a global refugee crisis took place. What do you say to voters who question your ability to handle U.S. foreign policy if elected president?

Criminal justice reform:

—Mr. Biden, you championed the highly controversial 1994 Crime Bill which disproportionally incarcerated a generation of Black men. Why should people of color and the Black community trust you to have their back today when it comes to criminal justice reform?

U.S. election:

—Michael Bloomberg, the billionaire former mayor of New York City, has pledged to spend $100 million to help you win the state of Florida. He’s also raised $16 million with help from Hollywood millionaires and big tech CEOs such as Twitter’s Jack Dorsey to pay off thousands of criminals’ debts so they can vote. Yet, for years, Democrats have railed against big money in politics. Do you support millionaires and billionaires buying influence in elections? And if not, will you reject Bloomberg’s money and other deep-pocket donors?

    1. By that time, he will probably have forgotten what country he’s in, let alone the answers you’re wanting to ask. For goodness sake, the man can’t remember what he had for breakfast. His wife as well as his handlers with elder abuse. I acutely feel sorry for the man. He should be allowed and retire and have some peace and quiet. His wife must be a real piece of work. They keep pushing and pushing until he has a stroke. The basement was the best place for him.

    1. who chose wallace ?? he is a trump hater he will soft ball questions for biden and curve ball questions for trump the quetions need to come from the american people and wallace should not see them until right before the debate starts. he has always ruth shullnot been fair to really anyone on the conservative side

    2. Wallace is a jerk! He hates Trump and will do anything to make him look bad! Watch the difference in questions. Better yet maybe ask each the same question here and there. Don’t trust Wallace!

  1. a reply to Robert Ralzor both should answer the same question that would eliminate wallace from soft balling bidens questions the rules of the debate should be out for the american people to see i do not trust chris wallace

  2. Everybody knows whether they say it or not how Biden will be destroyed in the debates. We can only imagine how scared and worried Biden is to destroy anything he’s worked for so far because he knows that Trump is going to totally obliterate him! His handlers have to be afraid of what Trump will do to him in front of all America!

    1. You have to be knowledgeable to be scared. I’m sure Biden will have all the questions in advance, so he can memorize his answers. I agree that the attached list of questions should be asked of Biden, just maybe the President will get around to mentioning them. Hopefully. I wonder what BS Biden will say about his son. No wonder his son does all these things, because apparently the only son they cared for was Bo

  3. Wallace published the list of questions he will ask on FOX, in all other debates they are given the same questions. You probably can google them. I am not sure it will happen, it it does his answers might not make sense.

  4. I wonder if Sleepy, hiding Biden shows up whether he will demand a time out halfway through the debate so he can take a nap? Trump 2020!

  5. It would be wonderful if Wallace were to ask those questions. But it won’t happen. He’ll soft ball Biden and stick it to Trump! He’s Liberal after all. A Dem all the way through.

  6. Also, I feel no news media person should be in charge of these debates. I think a panel of We The People0 should do it, but you can bet the news media will be bias. What’s new, they are a bunch of idiots just trying to make a lying living.

  7. I totally agree with Jan concerning who should be in charge of the debates.
    No bias, lies, and fair equality of same content for public to cf. Shalom!
    [Otherwise, no value…except reveal deception/incredibility.]

  8. I don’t trust Chris Wallace at all. He let Hillary get away with so much crap. He is not a Trump fan and does not know how to be objective. Why Fox news keeps him is a question for the ages. Even if Biden tries to memorize his answers, he will not remember any of them. Supposedly neither candidate can get the questions ahead of time. How did that work out for Hillary? Just wish there was another moderator who could be fair. The President will obliterate Biden.

  9. HIDEN BIDEN WILL “NEVER BE ABLE TO ANSWER THESE QUESTION……IN THE TIME FRAME YOU HAVE??????????? HE DOES A 10 MINUTE SPEECH THEN TAKES THE DAY OFF?????????? WITHOUT ANSWERING ANY QUESTIONS????????? IF HE SHOULD HAPPEN TO ANSWER A QUESTION HE EITHER SAY HE WILL NOT TALK ABOUT THAT OR HE GETS AGITATED….AND SWEARS AT THE PERSON……CALLLING THEM “LYING DOG FACE PONY SOLDIERS”!!!!!! I WANT TO SEE HIM ANSWERS THE QUESTIONS?????????? I MAY TAPE IT ??????? FOR PROSPERITY????

  10. YES I WORRY ABOUT Chris Wallace……..HE IS A TRUMP HATER!!!!!!!!!…..HE WILL CUSHION IT FOR JOE!!!!!!!! JUST LIKE THE REST OF THE MEDIA!!!!!!!!!! GIVING SOFTBALL QUESTIONS…….WHAT DO YOU THINK OF THE WEATHER TODAY!!!!!!!! ETC;……….

  11. AMERICA: IT IS TIME THAT WE ALL FALL ON OUR KNEES AND PRAY TO OUR GOD THAT HE WILL BE WITH US IN THIS ELECTION YOU MIGHT SAY I DO NOT HAVE TIME, MAKE TIME, IN YOUR MIND/HEART WHISPER A PRAYER OFF AND ON ALL DAY EVER DAY AND ALWAYS BE IN OUR LIVES. THEN DO NOT FOR GET TO THANK HIM.

    P.S. JUST THINK WHEN MOSES PRAYED: GOD ROLL BACK THE SEA WATER. THE ISRAELITE WALKED ACROSS ON DRY GROUND, THEN GOD LEFT THE WATER ROLLED BACK AND THE SOLDIERS AND ANIMALS DROWNED. BUT WE MUST ALL PRAYED THAT GOD HAND IS IN CONTROL.

  12. These are all excellent questions. However, they are all too long. Joe’s train of thought is about 3 words. Then Joe will say, “Wait, can you repeat that?” Chris Wallace: “You want me to repeat the whole question?” Biden: “I was talking Jill. I didn’t understand what she wanted me to say.”

  13. Why would Biden /Biden team say no to a check of electronic ear devices??
    If he is not wearing one, there is no doubt he is clean?? Now in my thoughts I am believing he is using some listening device ??
