Trump continues to support Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta who was responsible for giving child rapist and one-time friend of Trump, Jeffrey Epstein, a lenient sentence for his crimes.
Anyone else would have been put away for life.
Acosta allowed Epstein to go to a minimum security, country club-style jail and was allowed a work release program which meant he was at his office 12 hours a day.
Any other child rapist would have been put away for life.
Why did Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta give Jeffrey Epstein such a light sentence for his henious crimes?
Trump on Tuesday told reporters Epstein was unavoidable as a prominent figure in the Palm Beach community: "I was not a fan of his, that I can tell you."
Donald Trump on Jeffrey Epstein:
"I've known Jeff for 15 years. Terrific guy. 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."
Roger J. Stone Jr., the former Trump adviser, wrote in his book “The Clintons’ War on Women,” which was published during the campaign, that Mr. Trump “turned down many invitations to Epstein’s hedonistic private island and his Palm Beach home.” Once when Mr. Trump visited Mr. Epstein at his Palm Beach home, Mr. Stone wrote, he later seemed to joke about the scene of underage girls he witnessed there.
“The swimming pool was filled with beautiful young girls,” Mr. Trump later told a Mar-a-Lago member, according to Mr. Stone. “‘How nice,’ I thought, ‘he let the neighborhood kids use his pool.’”
Sam Nunberg, a former campaign aide to Mr. Trump, said he raised concerns about the candidate’s involvement with Mr. Epstein before Mr. Trump officially began his presidential campaign. But Mr. Trump assured Mr. Nunberg that he had barred Mr. Epstein from entering his clubs after Mr. Epstein had tried to recruit a woman who worked at Mar-a-Lago.
Yes, Bill Clinton is going to be stained by his connection to Epstein. But Clinton is gone from office and Trump isn’t.
Trump appears to have barred Epstein over a business deal not over the young women. That fits the pattern. Women, ok but don’t mess with Trump’s money.
Hopefully SDNY will be able to make a case against Donald as being aware of Epstein’s actions and not reporting it or maybe even taking part in them.
