Donald Trump knows a lot more about Jeffrey Epstein’s crimes than he is letting on according to a new lawsuit filed earlier this year by a woman claiming that she was paraded in front of Trump by Epstein at Mar-a-Lago back in 1995 when she was just 14-years-old.
Trump had been friends with Epstein for 20 years before the billionaire was arrested and prosecuted on pedophilia and child sex trafficking in 2008. Just a year earlier, Trump had booted Epstein from his Florida resort for targeting the young daughter of a club member. A new book claimed that Epstein was a member himself despite denials by the Trump Organization, and brought to light the reason why Trump’s association with Epstein ended.
Had the young girl not been the daughter of a Mar-a-Lago member, however, Trump may have just looked the other way because it certainly seems like he did just that in 1995 when Epstein brought one of his underage victims to the resort to show her off to Trump.
The woman who filed the lawsuit — identified only as “Jane Doe” for her protection — made that exact claim and described the brief remarks that took place between Epstein and Trump.

According to The Daily Beast:
Doe also claims Epstein introduced her to Donald Trump at Mar-A-Lago when she was only 14 years old. ‘This is a good one, right?’ Epstein asked the future president, who allegedly smiled and nodded before sharing a chuckle with the depraved hedge funder.”
It appears that Trump nodded in approval of what Epstein was doing and would carry on ignoring his illegal activities with underage girls until 2007 when Epstein’s depravity threatened Trump’s business.
Before that, Trump thought Epstein was “terrific” and even alluded to Epstein’s preference for women “on the younger side.”
“Terrific guy,” he told New York Magazine in 2002. “He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it — Jeffrey enjoys his social life.”
This from a man who has lusted after his daughter for years, including when she was a young girl. Trump has also repeatedly talked about underage girls by claiming he’d be dating them soon. One of these girls was 10 and the other was 14 at the time. He also expressed his attraction for Michael Cohen’s then-underage daughter Samantha, who was only 15-years-old at the time.
Perhaps no one other than Ghislaine Maxwell knows Epstein more than Trump did. They partied constantly together, and Trump seemed to know all about Epstein’s infamous island.
Put together all the pieces, and it really sounds like Trump should have been in prison a long time ago. It’s not too late for justice to prevail.
