'Where's Hunter?': Trump Slams Bidens, 'Sinister Faker' Democrats in First Rally Since Impeachment Inquiry

Thursday, President Donald Trump targeted Hunter Biden and the "sinister faker" Democrats he believes are responsible for a "witch hunt" against him, in his first rally since the start of the impeachment inquiry.

Arriving on stage to the sound of Lee Greenwood's "God Bless the U.S.A.," Trump appeared at the rally in Minneapolis, Minnesota with claims of being "energized" by the impeachment inquiry.

"This feels like the day before the election," said Trump.

In a speech lasting more than 90 minutes, Trump boasted about what he believes are his accomplishments and blasted the impeachment hearings, which he claimed would "produce a backlash at the ballot box the likes of which they have never ever seen before in this country."

Trump insisted that he was a victim of an "insane impeachment witch hunt." He claimed that the phone call at the center of the impeachment inquiry, with Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky, was "beautiful" and "perfect."

Some of Trump's most heated moments were reserved for Joe Biden and his son Hunter. The president repeated his unsubstantiated claim that Hunter Biden received $1.5 billion in a corrupt deal in China. Trump also seemed to suggest that the younger Biden had "disappeared."

"Where's Hunter?" Trump asked. "You're a loser Hunter."

"Your father was never considered smart," said Trump. "He was only a good vice president because he understood how to kiss Barack Obama's ass."

Trump stated that Joe Biden was "totally owned and totally controlled by the Washington swamp," which he claimed to still be in the process of "draining."

"Sleepy Joe and his friends sold out America," Trump said of the older Biden. "The Bidens got rich... while America got robbed."

The president played to an enthusiastic crowd of supporters, and vowed to win Minnesota in the 2020 election. He denounced local politicians unpopular with conservatives, telling the crowd "you got a rotten mayor," and describing Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar as an "America-hating socialist."

Trump also spent a great deal of time slamming the press, which he referred to as "the fake news media" who are "so bad for our country." The president suggested that the press was complicit in the "partisan witch hunt sabotage" of impeachment. He reserved particular disdain for the Washington Post, which he called "a terrible newspaper."

Public opinion appears to be turning in favor of Trump's impeachment. A recent Fox News poll suggests that a majority of Americans would like to see the president "impeached and removed." Trump complained about the "phony polls" at Thursday's rally, claiming "polls are no different than crooked writers."

The president also praised several Fox News personalities during the speech, but his overall opinion of the network seems to have soured of late, with a recent tweet complaining that the network is "much different than it used to be in the good old days."

Trump left the stage as "You Can't Always Get What You Want" by The Rolling Stones played.
