During a press conference on the sidelines of the NATO summit this Tuesday morning, President Trump was asked about recent news surrounding the Duke of York Prince Andrew’s stepping down from his royal duties in the wake of accusations that he had sex with an underage girl and had ties to billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
“I don’t know Prince Andrew, but it’s a tough story; it’s a very tough story.” Trump replied, adding, “I don’t know him, no.”
But according to a report from The New York Times this Tuesday, the evidence suggests otherwise.
“During his state visit to Britain in June, Mr. Trump toured Westminster Abbey in London with the prince, and they were photographed laughing together,” the Times reports. “There are also photographs of the two men together closer to the time and the social circles that Ms. Giuffre has spoken about.”
The report goes on to state that Trump and his then-girlfriend, Melania Knauss – who is now the first lady – “were seen with the prince at least twice in 2000: once at the opening of Hudson Hotel in New York and, more intimately, at Mr. Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida.”
Photos also exist that show Trump with Prince Andrew and Jeffrey Epstein in Palm Beach, Florida, back in 2000.
CNN host left in tears after heartbreaking report on COVID-19 victims
During a segment on CNN this Monday, anchor Brianna Keilar was moved to tears while honoring people who've lost their lives to the coronavirus, especially while telling the story of a couple who died holding hands.
Keilar recounted how a couple married for over 50 years died from the virus only minutes apart after being admitted to the hospital on August 11. When it became clear they wouldn't survive, they were placed in the same ward, where they died holding hands.

So-called moderate Georgia senator brags she’s as conservative as a pagan barbarian who killed his own brother to rule
Sen. Kelly Loeffler's (R-GA) new campaign ad brags that she's "more conservative than Attila the Hun," with an actor grunting off a "list" of things he would do.
It appears neither Loeffler nor her staff thought to google who Attila the Hun was and why associating yourself with him could be a public relations disaster.
Among the things the History Channel remembers about Attila, was that he killed his own brother to ensure absolute power. He invaded Gaul in an attempt to score a wife. He also had a "legendary lust for gold."
McConnell’s Supreme Court fight exposes the contempt he and Trump hold for millions of Americans: op-ed
Writing for the Washington Post this Monday, Greg Sargent says that Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's forging ahead with a vote to replace Ruth Bader Ginsburg is more than just "hypocrisy" -- it's a demonstration of "the contempt that McConnell and Trump hold for millions and millions of American voters."
"It’s about their cavalier willingness to treat all those voters’ political preferences as having no legitimate purchase at all — that is, when they vote for Democrats," Sargent writes.
According to Sargent, the "real game" was given away by Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN), who declared that the “Constitution gives Senators the power” to confirm nominees, and so “no one should be surprised” if they do it in this case.
