Hunter Biden said Tuesday that he made an error in judgment by joining the board of directors for a Ukrainian energy company at a time when Joe Biden was the point person for the Obama administration’s policies in Ukraine. 

Some have criticized the arrangement as a conflict of interest, but there is no evidence of wrongdoing by the Bidens.

“I never discussed a single thing with my son about Ukraine,” Biden said. “No one has indicated that I have. We’ve always kept everything separate … There’d be no potential conflict. My son made a judgement, I’m proud of what he had to say. Let’s focus on the fact of the matter that this is about Trump’s corruption. That’s what we should focus [on].”

Biden said Trump was highlighting the matter because he’s afraid of facing Biden in the general election.

“He doesn’t want me to be the candidate because he knows if I get the nomination I’ll beat him like a drum,” Biden said.
