In 2016 Donald Trump, billionaire businessman, was elected President of the United States and in the past 3 and a half years has been the talking point of many political debates and arguments. Things kicked off with a bang in December 2016, just a few weeks after winning the election, when Trump tweeted about expanding America’s “nuclear capability.” The President continued to appear on the news for the next couple months, as more and more of Trump’s staff were either fired, or quit. However, it is President Trump’s most recent controversy with Ukraine that has lead to a full inquiry…into the impeachment of Trump.

The story starts, not with Ukraine, not with Trump, but with Joe Biden, Vice President under Barack Obama. After Trump was elected, not much was heard about Biden, until recently when he launched his 2020 Presidential Campaign. However, drama often surfaces in the most likely of times. Joe Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, has been fairly involved in foreign companies; especially energy companies. In April of 2014, Hunter became a paid board member to Ukrainian oil and gas company, Burisma Holdings and in 2013, one of Hunter Biden’s primary investment funds, Bohai Harvest RST, acquired a $1.5 billion deal with the Bank of China.

Fast forward to September 2019, Former Vice President Biden is running against Trump in the 2020 election. People were already questioning Joe Biden’s involvement with his son’s businesses, wondering if he had used his political influence to pave his son’s path, and bank account. How does Trump fit into this? Well, seeing a chance to dethrone Biden and secure the election, Trump decides to take things into his own hands. Trump began speaking out against Joe Biden, claiming that Hunter “took money from China.” President Trump then proceeded to use his Presidential powers to call the Ukrainian President Zelensky and ask him to “probe” into the Bidens’ affairs. Trump even allegedly threatened to withhold American support, should President Zelensky disregard his request. However, Zelensky has already spoken up, saying “Nobody pushed me.”

After an anonymous “Whistleblower” claim that Trump was trying to get Ukraine involved in the election, the House of Representatives launched and impeachment inquiry on Trump. Since then, many new pieces of evidence, including a summary of Trump’s phone call with President Zelensky, were released to the public. This all stemmed from rumors of Joe Biden’s involvement in foreign business deals, rumors that have been all but disproven. This leaves America with a difficult question; Who is to be believed?
