Biden Owens, who managed her brother's Senate campaigns and first two presidential runs, made the remarks to voters at two South Carolina events for supporters of the former vice president, according to BuzzFeed News.

"The part that is, not refreshing — hopeful to me, or makes me feel good, is that Trump thinks that we're the guy to beat. It's perverse, it's backwards. But he's coming after us. I don't want to protest too much, but the press has done their job on this. We haven't had to do it. There's nothing there there. Now it's China," she added, referencing Trump's call last week for China to investigate Biden, following a similar request that he made to Ukraine. "I mean, this guy's unhinged."

Trump said "Biden and his son are stone cold crooked," during a Wednesday press conference.

"It's not pleasant. But Trump has really laid out all of his cards. This is really not about my family. He has chosen my family to be the vehicle that he can [use to] influence the election," she added.

The remarks are similar to comments made by Biden himself, who has said Trump's attempts to spur an investigation indicate he knows Biden would "beat him like a drum" next year.

Biden is the current front-runner to capture the 2020 Democratic nomination, though he faces a crowded primary field and a surging campaign from Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.).
