'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."
