Opinion| Kirsters Baish| NBC archives have released footage from November of 1992 which shows now-President Donald Trump talking to alleged child sex trafficker/close Clinton family friend, Jeffrey Epstein, at Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.
According to the Daily Caller, “The footage shows Trump with cheerleaders from the Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins partying at the estate shortly after Trump’s separation from his first wife, Ivana Trump, in 1991. At one point, the women are seen chanting ‘Donald' while Trump laughs, and in another moment, Trump is seen patting a girl’s butt.”
Take a look:
Trump spent time talking and partying with guests, which included Epstein.
The Caller reports, “Trump and Epstein then spend some time talking. At one point, Trump appears to point to one of the girls and tell Epstein, ‘she’s hot.' Trump is also talking to a second man during this conversation. Epstein was arrested in 2008 on two charges of prostitution in Florida, one with a minor. On July 6, he was arrested again in New York on charges of child sex trafficking. Following his arrest many pointed out that Trump was friends with Epstein.”
“I knew him like everybody in Palm Beach knew him,” Donald Trump said as reported by NBC News. “I was not a fan.”
Later on, Epstein was banned from coming to Trump's Florida estate after he allegedly assaulted a minor female, court documents state.
Via The Daily Caller:
The footage was shot for NBC’s Faith Daniels’ talk show, “A Closer Look.” It was aired as a profile into the life of a newly divorced Trump, according to NBC. This footage was shot 16 years before Epstein was first arrested in Florida.
Trump has said that his relationship with Epstein was similar to everyone else in their circle, and they have not spoken since Epstein was first arrested in 2008.
