"President Trump seemingly cannot tell the truth — about anything," Biden continued. "He slanders anyone he sees as a threat ... It's the same cynical playbook he returns to again and again."

Biden, whose status as the frontrunner in the Democratic race has been challenged in recent weeks, has been at the center of a political storm since House Democrats launched an impeachment inquiry into Trump last week. The probe centers around a July 25 phone call between Trump and newly elected Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, during which the American president asked his Ukrainian counterpart to look into whether Biden halted an investigation into Ukrainian gas firm Burisma Holdings, where Biden's son Hunter once sat on the board.

"There's a lot of talk about Biden's son, that Biden stopped the prosecution and a lot of people want to find out about that," Trump told Zelensky, according to a memorandum of the conversation released Sept. 25. "So whatever you can do with the Attorney General would be great. Biden went around bragging that he stopped the prosecution, so if you can look into it ... It sounds horrible to me."

Jim Jordan: Trump not serious in calls for China to investigate Biden

  Jim Jordan: Trump not serious in calls for China to investigate Biden Republican Rep. Jim Jordan on Sunday furthered what may be a new GOP strategy: questioning President Donald Trump’s seriousness in asking China to investigate the Biden family.

"I’m sure that President Xi [Jinping] does not like being under that kind of scrutiny where billions of dollars is taken out of his country by a guy that just got kicked out of the Navy," said Trump, who was making an apparent reference to a 2013 trip by Joe Biden to Beijing on Air Force Two in which Hunter Biden tagged along. NBC News reported that Hunter Biden was attempting to start a big-money private equity fund, for which Chinese authorities issued a business license 10 days after the trip was over.

“America’s word and our standing in the world are in free fall because of the actions and incompetence of this president,” added Biden, who also used the op-ed to hit Trump on key Democratic campaign issues gun control and climate change.
