Upon the arrest of Jeffrey Epstein, it seemed like it was only a matter of time before his long-time partner Ghislaine Maxwell was arrested as well. It took longer than most expected, but Maxwell was finally apprehended in early July. She has been charged with multiple counts of sex abuse.
Donald Trump at least had enough of a relationship with Maxwell to be photographed with her on multiple occasions. When asked about her current predicament during Tuesday’s press conference, the President said that he wishes her well.
The New York Post’s Steven Nelson queried, “Ghislaine Maxwell is in prison. A lot of people want to know if she’s going to turn in powerful me, and I know you’ve talked in the past about Prince Andrew and you criticized Bill Clinton’s behavior. Do you feel that she’s going to turn in powerful men? How do you see that working out?”
“I just wish her well frankly, said Trump. “I’ve met her numerous times over the years especially since I lived in Palm Beach and I guess they lived in Palm Beach but I wish her well.”
