Trump’s request of the Ukrainian president to investigate Hunter Biden’s business dealings in that country has become the basis for an impeachment inquiry in the U.S. House.

Trump has said he did not do anything wrong.

"No one, no one has asserted my son did a single thing wrong. No one has asserted that I have done anything wrong, except a lying president," Biden told reporters.

Biden's appearance at the labor forum was his first visit to Iowa since calling for Trump to be impeached last week. Biden is one of the last Democratic presidential contenders to signal his support for the U.S. House's impeachment inquiry against Trump.

Failing to pursue the impeachment inquiry against the president could give future presidents license to engage in unethical behavior, Biden said at the forum.

"If, in fact, the House doesn’t move and let the facts fall where they may, what does the next unethical president, if we elect another one, what does that say they can do?" Biden said. "What’s that say? What’s going to happen? They have to know there’s consequences."

Biden suggested growing public opinion on impeachment will sway more Republicans in Congress to support it. Several public polls in recent days have found that public support for an impeachment inquiry tops 50%.

"What’s going to change Republican minds in the United States Congress is when their constituents start changing their minds," Biden told the labor forum. "And you’re seeing it start to happen: More Republican voters, independent voters are saying, 'Whoa, whoa, whoa. I didn’t know this.'"
