Joe Biden in 2013: Asks China for help to seek the oval office, and the moment was caught on video still viewable on the Obama White House YouTube page.
After Chinese President Xi Jinping assumed the top job in his country, “I congratulated him on his elevation, I asked if he could possibly help me,” Biden said to laughter from the assembled US and Chinese dignitaries.
Reports pointed out that a similar joke by President Trump about Russia sparked an FBI probe and the “collusion hoax,” while Biden got away with making such comments.
The former vice president’s remarks were also made at the time when his son Hunter was receiving hefty payments from Beijing amid a military draw-down by the U.S. in the South China Sea.
