Trump Says He ‘Was Not A Fan’ Of Jeffrey Epstein After Calling Him A ‘Terrific Guy’

President Donald Trump said that he “was not a fan” of billionaire Jeffrey Epstein, who was recently arrested for allegedly sex trafficking minors, notes CNBC (more video below):

I had a falling out a long time ago with him. don’t think I’ve spoken to him in 15 years. I was not a fan of his.

However, Trump itold New York magazine in 2002 that Epstein was a “terrific guy” who is “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.

After distancing himself from Epstein, Trump said that he felt badly for Labor Secretary Alex Acosta who approved a controversial no-prosecution deal for Epstein in a sex crime scandal in the mid-2000s.

Acosta approved the deal when Epstein was being investigated both by state and federal authorities for the alleged crimes that he is now charged with.
