Boston, Oct 15 (IANS) As the key trinity of Democratic candidates socialist Bernie Sanders, capitalist Elizabeth Warren and centrist Joe Biden jump start their presidential candidature bids, the latter two appear to be locked in a race to fight Trump in 2020. The race to West Wing has begun in earnest.
Joe Biden emerged as someone smelling like roses almost overnight as he strategically chose a new path. His son Hunter embroiled in controversy pulled out from the board of a Chinese company. Almost in parallel, Joe Biden purposefully unveiled his code of ethics which included things like how his family members will have nothing to do with the White House once he gets there. Appearing to be in pole position after unveiling his code of ethics, Biden has obviously done his math all over again over the weekend.
CNN reported – Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden unveiled a plan Monday for how his administration would prioritize ethics should he be elected president in 2020, pledging to “ensure that no future president can ever again abuse the office for personal gain.”
In a rebuke of the Trump administration, Biden pledges to “restore” ethics in government, “rein in executive branch financial conflicts of interest,” and “return integrity” to decision making in his administration.
The ethics plan comes a day after the former vice president’s son, Hunter Biden, announced that he will resign at the end of the month from his board role in the management company of a private equity fund backed by Chinese state-owned entities. Hunter Biden has come under scrutiny from President Donald Trump and Republicans for his position on the board, as well as his previous ties to a Ukrainian energy company, which Trump wanted Ukraine’s government to investigate — a move that largely prompted a House impeachment inquiry into the President’s conduct. Trump has denied doing anything improper.
Meanwhile, a trump lambasted the Dems again, the pressure mounting, he spoke about a coup against him. Taking to twitter, he said – The House gone rogue! I want to remind you a little bit about the ring leader in this whole rogue operation against the President of the United States…” doesn’t speak for the FULL HOUSE because the FULL HOUSE hasn’t spoken. The Democrat Party is pushing this Impeachment. This is a Democrat Party Impeachment, as I have been saying, a silent COUP effort.” @MarkLevinShow.
