Hunter Biden raked in the cash as he assisted communist China in its pursuit of controlling the supply of cobalt after his father, Joe Biden, had publicly warned that America's electric car development could be threatened by China's control of the precious resource, reports say.

According to mining.com, the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) holds 51 percent of the world’s cobalt, which is needed for the production of battery-powered vehicles.

“We risked losing our edge as a nation, and China and the rest of the world are catching up,” Biden said earlier this month about the control of cobalt.

The New York Times reported that, in recent years, American elites have allowed, and even enabled, Chinese-backed companies to buy two of the largest cobalt deposits in DRC over the past five years.
