Donald Trump would not be surprised if Joe Biden pardoned his son Hunter Biden if he is convicted.

During an interview with Breitbart News, Trump said “I think he (Joe Biden) would do anything. I think he’s a guy that would do anything. He probably would do that.”

The White House has claimed that Joe Biden wouldn’t pardon Hunter Biden.

Hunter Biden faces several criminal charges.

Trump was also asked why he didn’t pardon himself before leaving the White House.

Trump said his lawyers said he could and that it would hold up in court but that it would have been “totally inappropriate.”

Breitbart reported:

Former President Donald Trump, the 2024 GOP presidential frontrunner, told Breitbart News exclusively last week that he expects Democrat President Joe Biden would probably pardon his son Hunter Biden if the latter is convicted of crimes on the many criminal charges he faces.

“I think he (Joe Biden) would do anything. I think he’s a guy that would do anything. He probably would do that,” Trump said during a more-than-two-hour-long interview at Mar-a-Lago last Thursday evening when asked if Joe would pardon Hunter Biden if he is convicted of crimes.

Speaking of pardons, during the interview with Breitbart News, Trump said attorneys for him when he was still the president suggested he pardon himself—no president has ever done that, but the power of the pardon is pretty absolute and it would likely have held up under scrutiny—to avoid the legal troubles he’s going through now. Trump says he decided against it because he is innocent, and for historical purposes he did not want to be the first president ever to pardon himself.

“You know, I could have pardoned myself,” Trump told Breitbart News. “I had a couple of lawyers that said these people are crazy, if you don’t do it you’ll go through a lot. I said I didn’t do anything wrong so I’m not going to do it. But I could have pardoned myself when I left the White House. That would have held up very strongly. Pardon is a very powerful right. I didn’t do it because I thought it would be totally inappropriate, and if you do that you look guilty somewhat. But I had that option and I was given that very strong option by lawyers somewhat. I was given that by numerous lawyers who said, ‘If you want to do that you could because you’re going to spend a lot of your time in court and these people are totally nuts, they’re bad people, they hate our country, and they hate you. They have Trump Derangement Syndrome, so, sir, you could pardon yourself now so you won’t have to go through it,’ and I said, ‘I don’t want to do that for purposes of history. I don’t want that history that I pardoned myself, because I did nothing wrong.’”
