Former President Donald Trump said Wednesday at a 2024 presidential campaign rally in Michigan that the only time President Biden ever gets his hands dirty is when he takes money from other countries.

"The only time Joe Biden has ever gotten his hands dirty is when he's taking cash from foreign countries, which is quite often," Trump said in the battleground state, which he won in his successful 2016 presidential bid. 

Biden has been under scrutiny from Republicans and others for allegedly being involved, and profiting, from son Hunter Biden's overseas business deals including ones in China and Ukraine.

"Based on what we're seeing, it's more than anyone would have thought," said Trump, amid new memos released by the GOP-led House, which on Thursday will hold its first inquiry hearing on impeaching Biden. 

Trump skipped the second GOP presidential debate, Wednesday night in California, to give a speech to United Auto Workers union members in Michigan, where they are on strike.

Trump is the current frontrunner in the 2024 GOP presidential primary. He won Michigan in 2016 by 10,704 votes and will likely need to win it again in 2024.

The strike is aimed at three Detroit Three factories following a failure to reach agreements over increased wages and other issues with the major American automakers. 

He also took a shot at electric vehicles, calling them too expensive. 

"They don't go far enough and they're too expensive," Trump stated.
