REPORT: Hunter Biden Has Been Attending White House Meetings After Disastrous Debate


President Biden’s troubled son Hunter — who was recently convicted of federal gun felonies and is set to go on trial for tax-related crimes later this year — has been attending White House meetings after his dad’s abysmal debate performance, according to a report from the New York Post.

The report comes as Biden’s family is urging him to resist calls from prominent Democrats to step down.

This past weekend, the family huddled for a meeting at Camp David in order to discuss the president’s political future. According to a report from the New York Times, members of Biden’s family were adamant that he should  stay in the race and work to turn things around. First Lady Jill Biden has been named as a major advocate for her husband’s campaign and has blamed his aides and top advisers for last Thursday’s debate performance.

Hunter Biden, 54, was also behind his father’s continued candidacy and was a major factor in the president’s decision to continue, the report noted. Now, the New York Post is reporting that Hunter Biden is enjoying an elevated role in White House affairs.

“Hunter doesn’t trust” his father’s senior aides, one source told the outlet. “I think Hunter wants to be there, and POTUS isn’t going to say no.”

NBC News further reported on Hunter Biden’s attendance at White House meetings, citing four sources. One of the people familiar with the situation told NBC that Hunter has emerged as a close adviser to his father in the days following the Camp David meeting. The source added that he has “popped into” a few meetings and phone calls the president has held with his advisers.

Another source reported that Hunter’s elevated role has sent shockwaves through the White House, with the mood among some staffers being described as, “What the hell is happening?”

White House spokesman Andrew Bates told the outlet that Hunter helped his father with preparation for Monday night’s brief speech on the Supreme Court’s presidential immunity decision. “Hunter came back with the President from their family weekend at Camp David and went with the President straight into speech prep,” Bates said.

The first son is expected to remain at the White House this week in order to celebrate the July 4 holiday with his family.
