There is an renewed interest in what has been going on in Palm Beach, Florida after comments Trump made at his first coronavirus briefing since April.


"Ghislaine Maxwell is in prison and a lot of people want to know if she's going to turn in powerful people," a reporter noted.

"I know you've talked in the past about Prince Andrew and you've criticized Bill Clinton's behavior. I'm wondering, do you feel she's going to turn in powerful men? How do you see that working out?" Trump was asked.

"I don't know, I haven't really been following it too much. I just wish her well, frankly. I've met her numerous times over the years, especially since I lived in Palm Beach and I guess they lived in Palm Beach. But I wish her well, whatever it is. I don't know the situation with Prince Andrew, I just don't know. Not aware of it," Trump claimed.
