Donald Trump all of a sudden doesn’t know anything about Prince Andrew’s association with deceased billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein, but that was not the case in 2015.
As we all know, Trump and Epstein were friends who were often photographed together and went to the same parties, as did Ghislaine Maxwell, who is currently under arrest and awaiting trial for child sex trafficking.
During his press conference on Tuesday, Trump denied knowing anything about Prince Andrew’s situation with Epstein, which involves the alleged rape of an underage girl and trips to Epstein’s private island.
“I don’t know the situation with Prince Andrew. Just don’t know, not aware of it,” Trump claimed before going on to extend well-wishes to Maxwell. “I don’t know, I haven’t really been following it too much. I just wish her well, frankly,” he said.
Trump’s remarks about Maxwell were particularly galling and have been widely condemned since it appears Trump is dangling a pardon in exchange for Maxwell’s silence. It’s also disgusting since Maxwell is an accused child sex trafficker. The president should not be extending well-wishes to such a person.
But returning to his remarks about Prince Andrew, it turns out Trump had something far different to say about him just five years ago.
Trump not only admitted that Epstein’s island is a “cesspool,” he claimed Prince Andrew knows all about it.
“That island was really a cesspool, there’s no question about it, just ask Prince Andrew — he’ll tell you about it,” Trump said just before he threw his MAGA hat in the ring for the presidency. “The island was an absolute cesspool.”
How would Trump know the island is a “cesspool” if he had never been there as he has claimed? And it definitely sounds like Trump outed himself as a witness to Prince Andrew’s activities with Epstein. Why would he deny knowing anything now?
Clearly, Trump knows more than he claims. All Ghislaine Maxwell and Prince Andrew need to do is to speak up and then Americans will finally know the truth. Of course, even if Trump forced underage girls to “service” him, his evangelical supporters probably still won’t abandon him.
