1992 Video Shows Donald Trump Partying with Jeffrey Epstein

HeadlineJul 18, 2019

Newly surfaced video shows Donald Trump laughing and gesturing at women during a 1992 party with Jeffrey Epstein. The video, aired by NBC News on Wednesday, shows Trump and Epstein eyeing NFL cheerleaders invited to a soirée at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. Trump is seen gesturing at a woman and telling Epstein, “She’s hot.” At another point, Trump whispers something in Epstein’s ear, causing him to double over laughing.

A federal judge in Manhattan is set to rule today on whether Epstein will remain in jail while he awaits trial on fresh charges of sex trafficking of minors, or be granted bail and allowed to remain under house arrest in his $77 million New York mansion. Epstein has reportedly been held three cells away from Mexican drug kingpin El Chapo in a federal jail in Manhattan.
