TRUMP ONCE MORE WISHES ACCUSED SEX TRAFFICKER ‘WELL’
In an interview with Axios political reporter Jonathan Swan Monday night on HBO, U.S. President Donald Trump once again wished accused child sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell “well.”
Maxwell was arrested recently in New Hampshire, and stands accused of facilitating pedophile Jeffrey Epstein’s abuse of young women. Trump had already made headlines by wishing the one-time British socialite well, and on Monday doubled down on those remarks when Swan listed Maxwell’s charges.
When Swan asked why Trump would wish Maxwell well, he replied: “Her friend or her boyfriend was either killed or committed suicide in jail. She’s now in jail. Yeah, I wish her well, I wish you well, I wish a lot of people well.”
Maxwell was arrested on July 2 in New Hampshire and charged with enticement of minors, sex trafficking of children and perjury. Maxwell was for decades an associate of Epstein, the disgraced financier who faced federal sex trafficking charges but killed himself in a U.S. prison in August of last year, before he could face trial. Her trial is scheduled for July 2021.
