President Joe Biden denied the allegations that he and members of his family received money from an energy firm in China via an associate of his son Hunter Biden. 

House Oversight Committee Chairman James Comer (R-Ky) earlier this week released a summary of the first bank records showing how a $3 million payment from a Chinese company came into the United States, was broken up and eventually $1.3 million of the payment went into the accounts of President Joe Biden's family members shortly after he left office as vice president.

A reporter from the Epoch Times' sister media NTD questioned President Biden about the foreign money. 

"Any reaction to House GOP's memo about your family's dealings, sir?" NTD White House correspondent Iris Tao asked.

"My family's dealings?" Biden replied. 

"Yes. Revealing that Hunter Biden's business associate sent over $1 million to three of your family members. Any reaction to that report?" Tao pressed.

"That's not true," the president answered. 

The House Oversight Committee said it traced a $3 million payment that was sent from a Chinese company to John Robinson Walker, a Biden family associate in March 2017 just two months after Joe Biden stepped down as vice president.

The money, totaling $1.3 million, was distributed to accounts tied to Hallie Biden, the widow of the late presidential son Beau Biden, brother James Biden and son Hunter Biden.
