The White House defended President Joe Biden’s son Hunter for selling $375,000 worth of his artwork, despite questions about the ethics surrounding his newfound career.
White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the buyers of Hunter’s art would remain anonymous, as part of the “purview of the gallarist” showing his paintings.
White House ethics experts have raised flags about the arrangement between Hunter Biden and his gallarist, suggesting it would be better for the public to know who was purchasing Hunter’s art.
But Psaki cited the buyer anonymity as a feature of the arrangement.
“We still do not know and will not know who purchases any paintings and the president remains proud of his son,” she said during the White House press briefing.
