US President Donald Trump is cautiously defending that idea that the Clinton family is related to the alleged suicide of notorious financier Jeffrey Epstein, who was in jail for paedophilia.
Before heading to the US state of Pennsylvania for a speech, the president insisted in an address to reporters that all he did was “retweet.”
“The retweet — which is what it was, it was a retweet — was from somebody that is a very respected conservative pundit. So I think it was fine,” Trump said.
He later said he has “no idea” if the reported suicide of the registered sex offender was related to the Clintons.
Trump on Saturday shared a tweet from Terrence K. Williams that blamed Epstein’s death on Bill and Hillary Clinton without providing any evidence.
“I want a full investigation and that’s what I absolutely am demanding,” said Trump, who was close to Epstein like former President Clinton.
Trump in a 2002 interview called Epstein a “terrific guy” who “likes beautiful women as much as I do.”
Apart from that Epstein was close to many other high-profile figures such as British royal Prince Andrew.
While awaiting trial on federal sex trafficking charges, Esptein was found dead in his jail cell in the New York federal prison early Saturday.
