Democratic nominee Joe Biden was asked no questions during Thursday's town hall about the allegations against his son, Hunter Biden, concerning shady overseas business deals.

President Trump's reelection campaign accused Biden town hall moderator ABC's George Stephanopolous of giving Biden easy questions and avoiding uncomfortable topics, including the allegations leveled against his son.

Trump spokesperson Tim Murtaugh said after the town hall that Trump "masterfully handled [NBC's Savannah] Guthrie's attacks and interacted warmly and effectively with the voters in the room."

"Over on ABC it was a completely different scene, as once again Biden was kept comfortable and away from any questions that might challenge him," Murtaugh said.

Hunter Biden has been accused of participating in shady business dealings overseas while his father was serving as vice president. A recent report from the New York Post revealed the younger Biden may have used his father's name to increase his pay at a Ukrainian company and details emails sent between Hunter Biden and a now-bankrupt Chinese energy company.
