In a recent interview with Fox News, former President Donald Trump expressed a rare sentiment of empathy towards President Biden, acknowledging the devastating impact of addiction on families.

Drawing from personal experiences, Trump conveyed his understanding of the struggles families face when dealing with addiction.

"As reported by Fox News, Trump stated, "I understand it pretty well, because I’ve had it with people who have it in their family. It’s a very tough thing." The former President did not disclose specific family members who had battled addiction, but it is known that his brother, Fred Trump, publicly grappled with alcoholism.

Fred Trump's battle with alcoholism was so severe that it interfered with his daily life and was a contributing factor to the heart attack that claimed his life in 1981. Trump further elaborated on the issue during the Fox News interview, stating, "It’s a very tough situation for a father; it’s a very tough situation for a brother or sister; and it goes on, and it’s not stopping, whether it’s alcohol or drugs or whatever it may be."

Trump, who has been open about his decision to abstain from alcohol, credits his brother's struggles with addiction as a significant influence on his choice. He added, "It’s a tough thing, and so that’s a tough moment for the family. It’s a tough moment for any family involved in that."

The issue of addiction is not foreign to the Biden family either. Hunter Biden, the President's son, was recently found guilty on all charges related to making false statements about the purchase of a gun, providing false information required by a federally licensed gun dealer, and possession of a firearm by an individual unlawfully using or addicted to a controlled substance.

Hunter Biden's struggles with drug addiction have been well-documented, most notably in his 2021 memoir, "Beautiful Things." The memoir details his previous dependency on crack cocaine, his self-proclaimed status as a "crack daddy" to drug dealers, and various anecdotes about drug deals, including a Washington, D.C., crack dealer he nicknamed "Bicycles."
