President Donald Trump repeatedly took aim at his “corrupt” opponent Joe Biden and his family during a campaign rally in Nevada.

The president called out the Biden family as a “criminal enterprise” and sparked chants of “lock him up” from the crowd of supporters gathered to see him at the airport in Carson City on Sunday. Trump targeted the Democratic presidential nominee and his political record, focusing much of his criticism on Hunter Biden and his foreign business dealings as he praised last week’s explosive New York Post report.

“They’re corrupt people. But Joe Biden is from a failed and corrupt political class,” Trump said as he spoke about the reports revealing emails discovered on a laptop that showed the younger Biden’s activities in Ukraine and in overseas business while his father was serving as vice president in the Obama administration.

“Joe Biden is and always has been a corrupt politician,” Trump said as loud chants of “lock him up” broke out. “He always has been. And as far as I’m concerned, the Biden family is a criminal enterprise. It really is.”

While the president continued, calling out the Democrats working with the liberal media and Big Tech to undermine him, he continued his line of attack on Biden during the campaign event and the “horrible, horrible laptop.”

“Joe is far more corrupt than Hunter…Joe’s getting a piece of everything. They have it in the email,” Trump said.

“Joe he’s corrupt. And you know what, they found the laptop. They call it the laptop from hell,” Trump said at one point. “Let’s see what happens with it.”

The president also took to Twitter to slam the Biden “scandal.”

When Trump was speaking about his 2016 rival Hillary Clinton, someone in the crowd apparently yelled the familiar phrase “lock her up” but the president corrected and said, “no, lock him up.”

The president also fired a shot at Biden on handling the coronavirus pandemic, appearing to mock the Democrat for telling him to “listen to the scientists.”

“If you vote for Biden … he will surrender your future to the virus,” Trump said. “He’s going to lock down, this guy wants to lock down. He’ll listen to the scientists.

“If I listened totally to the scientists, we would right now have a country that would be in a massive depression instead of, we’re like a rocketship. Take a look at the numbers,” he said, before taking aim at Democrat governors who continued to keep their states closed amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Donald Trump tanked the strong economy he inherited from the Obama-Biden Administration by continually discounting and attacking warnings from the scientific and medical experts working around the clock to save lives,” Biden campaign spokesperson Andrew Bates told Fox News in a statement.

“Now,” Bates claimed, “new coronavirus cases are surging and layoffs are rising. If Donald Trump had listened to Joe Biden when he urged him not to trust the Chinese government over his own scientific advisers about this crisis, he wouldn’t be the worst jobs president since 1929.”

The president has been back on the campaign trail after being cleared by his doctor following treatment for COVID-19 during a three-day hospital stay at Walter Reed Medical Center. He has more rallies planned in the final stretch of election campaigning as he heads to Prescott and Tucson, Arizona, on Monday, and events in Erie, Pennsylvania, and Gastonia, North Carolina later this week.
