Watch outside court in Wilmington, Delaware, as Hunter Biden's trial on criminal gun charges continued on Monday, 10 June.

Joe Biden's son, 54, has pleaded not guilty to three felony charges accusing him of failing to disclose his use of illegal drugs when he bought the gun in October 2018 and of illegally possessing the weapon for 11 days.

Hunter Biden's lawyers could call at least one more witness when the case resumes but it was unclear if prosecutors will call any rebuttal witnesses before the case goes to closing arguments, and then to the jury.

When asked if he would accept whatever outcome of his son’s trial taking place in Wilmington, Delaware, the president said, “yes” and that he would rule out a pardon.

Last week he issued a statement saying: “I am the President, but I am also a Dad. Jill and I love our son, and we are so proud of the man he is today."
