Donald Trump in 2015: Epstein’s Island “Absolute Cesspool,” Media Should “Ask Prince Andrew About it”

Headlines Politics U.S.

Donald Trump in 2015 warned that Jeffrey Epstein’s island in the Caribbean was an “absolute cesspool” and warned, “ask Prince Andrew about it.”

Trump’s comments came around the time that accuser Virginia Giuffre alleged Epstein coerced her into having sex with the UK’s Prince Andrew on three separate occasions when she was 17.

Jeffrey Epstein was arrested last year on multiple charges related to running that sex trafficking operation. He allegedly coerced underage girls into performing sex acts with wealthy and powerful men from countries and governments all over the world.

Epstein committed suicide by hanging himself in his jail cell weeks after being arrested, but many suspect foul play was involved.

Ghislaine Maxwell, who has been accused of being Epstein’s “madame” and luring victims, including Giuffre, into Epstein’s sex ring, was arrested on July 2 in New Hampshire. She has indicated a willingness to cooperate and name names of individuals who were involved in the ring.

She was denied bail at a hearing on Wednesday.
