“I just think it’s the height of hypocrisy for Donald Trump and his family to say anything about any other family’s foreign interests anywhere in the world — because we know, even though he’s president … his sons are running his company and they have worked in two dozen countries,” she said.
She went on to call out Ivanka Trump, the president’s daughter, for working in the White House while receiving trademarks from China.

Hostin’s comments came as the president scrutinized Hunter Biden, former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, over his foreign business dealings.
Republicans have pointed to those dealings as potentially problematic given the former vice president’s place in the Obama administration.
In a Tuesday interview, the younger Biden maintained he did nothing wrong.
“What I regret is not taking into account that there would be a Rudy Giuliani and a president of the United States that would be listening to this ridiculous conspiracy idea,” he said.
