Former Vice President Joe Biden told NBC News’ Kristen Welker Friday that his son Hunter Biden “has not made money in terms of… what are you talking about?”

She asked the Democratic nominee about the growing scandal and release of emails from the recently discovered Hunter Biden laptop allegedly showing extraordinary deep seated corruption regarding his son’s business dealings with foreign government, mainly China, Ukraine and Kazakstan.

“In retrospect, were any of those relationships inappropriate or unethical?” asked NBC News’ Kristen Welker.

“Nothing was an unethical, here’s what the deal… My son has not made money in terms of this thing about… What are you talking about?” asked former VP Joe Biden to NBC about his son, Hunter Biden.

Biden denied everything, saying even during the debate that his son “did not make money” off of China. That, however, appears to be incorrect as a Senate report reveals that Hunter Biden’s business has made roughly over $5 million from a a Chinese Oil Company CEFC.

Moreover, he was receiving roughly $50,000 plus from Ukrainian energy giant Burisma Holdings every month to sit on the company’s board. There are also substantial questions about other business dealings including an alleged $3.5 million transfer from a former Moscow mayor’s wife.

“Nothing was an unethical, here’s what the deal… My son has not made money in terms of this thing about… What are you talking about?” asked Biden.

Michigan is asking its residents to help with the mess its leadership created and house migrants in their own homes. The state Department of Labor and Economic Development said volunteers who participate must commit for at least 90 days as part of the refugee support program.

In addition to opening up their homes, sponsors are expected to support newly arrived refugees by greeting them at the airport, securing and preparing initial housing, enrolling children in school and helping adults find employment.

“Programs like the Welcome Corps advance the Office of Global Michigan’s mission to make Michigan the home for opportunity for our immigrant, refugee and ethnic communities,” said Poppy Hernandez, Global Michigan Director and Michigan’s Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer. “Expanded refugee resettlement pathways empower more Michiganders to support our state’s growing refugee population and build a more welcoming and inclusive Michigan for all.”

The migrants will come from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua and Venezuela, all points of origin where many have been hoping to apply for asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Fox News reports “cities like New York and Chicago have also dealt with issues related to migrants committing crimes, as well as pushback from residents who have voiced anger and concern over the influx. Migrant shelters in those cities have largely been full, forcing officials to come up with ways to safely house the migrants.”

Last year, Massachusetts officials asked residents to open their doors as migrant shelters were full at the time. “Most importantly, if you have an extra room or suite in your home, please consider hosting a family. Housing and shelter is our most pressing need and become a sponsor family,” said Massachusetts Lt. Governor Kim Driscoll.
