"I wish her well" - Trump when asked about Ghislaine Maxwell (VIDEO)
During a press conference on Tuesday night to discuss the coronavirus, President Donald Trump was asked about Ghislaine Maxwell, the girlfriend of Jeffrey Epstein and alleged sex trafficker.
New York Post reporter Steven Nelson asked, “Ghislaine Maxwell is in prison so a lot of people want to know if she’s going to turn in powerful people. I know you talked in the past about Prince Andrew and you criticized Bill Clinton’s behavior. I’m wondering, do you feel that she’s going to turn in powerful men? How do you see that working out?”
Trump immediately responded: “I don’t know. I haven’t really been following it too much. I just wish her well, frankly. I’ve met her numerous times over the years, especially since I lived in Palm Beach.” He added that “they,” likely a reference to Maxwell and Epstein, “lived in Palm Beach.”
“I wish her well, whatever it is,” he reiterated. “I don’t know the situation with Prince Andrew. Just don’t know. Not aware of it."
Maxwell was arrested in New Hampshire earlier this month in connection with Epstein’s sex crimes. She faces six charges including conspiracy, enticement and transportation of a minor to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, and two counts of perjury.
