A partial transcript is as follows:
AMY ROBACH: President Trump will likely see, or at least, read about this interview. Anything you’d like him to hear from you?
HUNTER BIDEN: No, no. It’s really hard for me to say anything snarky right now or combative because I was raised to respect that office. I don’t know, it’s making me emotional.
ROBACH: Why do you think you’re getting emotional?
BIDEN: Because I am really proud of being an American, but I have to admit, I take no pleasure in this watching this death spiral of this administration, this president and the people that surround him.
ROBACH: How do you think this will all play out in the history books?
BIDEN: I don’t know. I hope that the history hasn’t been fully written yet. I hope that a lot of people that have a chance at redemption here stand up for what is right.
