US President Joe Biden is worried about the legal troubles facing his son, Hunter Biden, and has voiced fears he may not live to see the resolution of his son’s case.
Hunter Biden has been charged with three felony firearm offences in Delaware.
It is the first time in American history a sitting president’s child has been charged with a crime. If found guilty he could be facing decades behind bars.
President Biden reportedly has a strong emotional attachment to his only surviving son and refuses to distance himself from Hunter as he prepares for a re-election campaign.
A family insider informed NBC that the Bidens anticipate Hunter’s legal issues will deteriorate, with President Joe Biden openly expressing concern “that he might be dead before his son’s case would be resolved”.
