At debate, Biden defends his son - and himself - over Trump's Ukraine claims

He replied (watch here from 1:30 onwards): "Look, my son did nothing wrong".

"You know, when he made that call to the head of Ukraine, he's digging up dirt on an opponent", Klobuchar said. "That's what we should be focusing on".

President Donald Trump has criticized the father-son duo, claiming that Joe Biden used his political power as Vice President to help his son's business interests.

Biden is the front runner to challenge Trump in next year's election and he has become the main focus of Trump's ire among the field of Trump's Democratic rivals. He also said that he never discussed Ukraine matter with his son, but was contradicted by his son when he admitted he had discussed Ukraine with his father once.

Trump's July 25 phone call pressuring Ukraine's leader to investigate the Bidens is the focus of a whistleblower complaint that triggered the formal House impeachment inquiry into Trump.

"I think I get where he was going, but it took a while for him to get there", Noah said of Biden's defence.

Hunter and then-Vice President Joe Biden attend a World Food Programme event in April 2016.

Other candidates onstage also seemed to want to move on from Ukraine, despite Biden's position as one of the campaign's front-runners. "We'll see if anybody else makes that commitment, but that's the commitment I'm making".

"He goes into a meeting and walks out with $1.5 billion", the president said, adding, "these are the same Chinese negotiators I'm dealing with". "No one has indicated I have".

He joined the board of a gas company in Ukraine more than half a decade ago when his father was the Vice President during the Obama government, trying to control corruption in Ukraine. And what I wanted to make a point about - my son's statement speaks for itself. "And let's focus on this". But I think what would be a disaster, if the American people believe that all we were doing is taking on Trump and we're forgetting that 87 million Americans are uninsured or underinsured, ' said Sanders. The firm was the target of a since-dropped corruption investigation, in which he didn't face any charges.

The morning before the debate, Hunter Biden appeared on Good Morning America to discuss his foreign business dealings. 'He answered all the questions, ' she said.
