‘He’s proclaimed his innocence’: Trump weighs in on Patriots’ owner prostitution charge and Acosta pedophile deal

‘He’s Proclaimed His Innocence, Totally’

President Donald Trump has just weighed in on several sex scandals in today’s news, sex scandals surrounding two powerful billionaires. People in the cases are close to him. Unsurprisingly, he’s supporting those accused of wrongdoing.

“I really don’t know too much about it,” President Trump said Friday afternoon when asked about allegations his Secretary of Labor, Alex Acosta delivered an illegal sweetheart deal to billionaire serial pedophile rapist Jeffrey Epstein a decade ago, when Acosta was a U.S. Attorney.

“I know he’s done a great job as labor secretary and that seems like a long time ago,” Trump added.

Asked about news that the billionaire owner of the New England Patriots was arrested for solicitation of prostitution, the President replied he’s very sad, but then defended him.

“He’s proclaimed his innocence, totally,” Trump said of the Patriots’ owner, Robert Kraft, who is a close friend and ally of Trump’s.

It’s important to note the circumstances surrounding the case against Kraft. He was arrested “after a several-month investigation revealed women [at the spa] were in ‘sexual servitude,”‘ according to arrest records.

“Women, many of them from China, lived inside and were not permitted to leave,” TCPalm, a USA Today affiliate, reports. One sheriff “said he believes women in the spas were supplied by human traffickers with ties to China and New York.”

President Trump likes to use the terms human trafficking and sex trafficking as arguments to build his wall, but when he’s confronted with actual cases that affect his friends, he looks the other way.

Overall, the transcripts for depositions of Catherine Croft and Christopher Anderson, who were advisers to U.S. envoy Kurt Volker, built on the story of that we already know: that President Donald Trump pushed a shadow foreign policy to pressure Ukraine into investigating his political opponents, a scheme that involved using his office and military aid as leverage over the country in opposition to the official policy.

Former Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley defended President Donald Trump during a Monday appearance with Fox News personality Sean Hannity.

Hannity asked the former South Carolina governor if Trump was "misunderstood."

"I do think he’s misunderstood," Haley replied.

"I can tell you, from the first day to the last day that I worked for the president, he always listened, he was always conscious of hearing other voices, allowing people to debate out the issues, and then he made his decision," Haley claimed.

She argued that, "I saw a president that was very thoughtful, looked at all of the issues, made decisions, and it was a pleasure and honor to work with him."
