President Joe Biden has issued a statement in which, for the first time, he publicly acknowledged his 4-year-old granddaughter Navy Joan Roberts, the child of his son Hunter Biden and Lunden Roberts.
“Our son Hunter and Navy’s mother, Lunden, are working together to foster a relationship that is in the best interests of their daughter, preserving her privacy as much as possible going forward,” the president said in the statement, according to People. “This is not a political issue, it’s a family matter,” the president added. “Jill and I only want what is best for all of our grandchildren, including Navy.”
First lady Jill Biden is Hunter Biden’s step mother.
Joe Biden had previously been called out for failing to publicly acknowledge the grandchild. Earlier this year when running through a list of his grandchildren, Biden said that he has six grandchildren. “The family refuses to acknowledge the youngest child of their deadbeat son, Hunter — as if four-year-old child does not exist,” the RNC Research Twitter account wrote in response to the president’s comments.
President Biden, who is seeking another term in office, seems to be on course to crush his Democratic presidential primary challengers and secure the party’s nomination again. Former President Donald Trump likewise looks to be on track to trounce his GOP presidential primary opponents, which means Americans could potentially see another Trump versus Biden matchup during the general election contest next year.
