A Democratic strategist who served as an adviser to Michael Bloomberg's presidential campaign has promised to go after President Donald Trump's family if Republicans continue pressuring Hunter Biden over his Ukraine business dealings.
Timothy O'Brien said on MSNBC over the weekend that there will be a "scorched-earth" crusade against Trump's children if Republicans "make an issue out of Hunter Biden."
"If the Republicans really want to make an issue out of Hunter Biden, which is very low-hanging fruit that I don't think most Democratic voters care about anyway, there is going to be a scorched-earth response aimed at all of the Trump children that is unlike anything they've experienced thus far in the media," O'Brien said.
O'Brien, who is an executive editor at Bloomberg's news conglomerate, also claimed that the entire Trump family are "grifters," a suggestion that their wealth is illegitimate.
"The Trump family are epic grifters, and this goes back generations," O'Brien said. "Fred Trump made his money by intersecting with both the federal government and state government in New York. Donald came up through New York, intersecting with local government and in Atlantic City."
"Now they are now in the White House, and all of them are dipping their faces into the till," he claimed.
When show host Joe Reid asked if his boss — former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg — would be funding the "scorched-earth" campaign, O'Brien said it is "important" for voters to see how the Trump family has earned its billions.
"I think it's an important moment for the American people to be woke about how rampant the financial conflicts of interest are among Trump's children and the president himself," O'Brien said.
After ending his presidential campaign last month, Bloomberg endorsed Joe Biden for president and has indicated that he will continue to use his vast fortune to ensure Trump loses re-election in November.
