Hunter Biden’s firm helped secure cobalt for the Chinese: not interesting
On November 20th, 2021 The New York Times revealed that a firm connected to Joe Biden's son Hunter had a significant role in securing a cobalt mine for the Chinese.
This is specifically relevant since the Biden administration is pushing the country to switch over to electric cars, whose production requires cobalt.
In June the administration also warned that China might use its growing dominance of this mineral to squeeze U.S. manufacturers out of the
market and highlighted the risks of foreign dependence.
