Donald Trump cast doubt on Tuesday over former President Bill Clinton’s denial that he ever visited Jeffrey Epstein’s notorious ‘pedophilia island.’
The president repeatedly suggested that his predecessor was lying in a statement saying that he had not been to Little St. James, the island owned by the pervert financier, which was raided by the FBI Monday.
Speaking as he was about to board Air Force One from Morristown, New Jersey, Trump declined to answer whether he ‘really believed’ that the Clintons had arranged for Epstein to be killed, a claim he had retweeted after the 66-year-old’s apparent suicide on Saturday morning.
Instead he highlighted Clinton’s repeated flights on Epstein’s private plane, dubbed the Lolita Express, and suggested that the former president’s response to the revelation he was named in the flight logs was misleading.
Asked if he believed – as he had tweeted – that the Clintons played a part in the pervert’s death, he replied: ‘I have no idea.’
He went on: ‘I know he was on his plane 27 times, and he said he was on the plane four times.
‘But when they checked the plane log, Bill Clinton – who was a very good friend of Epstein’s – he was on the plane about 27 or 28 times. So why did he say four times?
‘And then the question you have to ask is: Did Bill Clinton go to the island? Because Epstein had an island – that was not a good place as I understand it.
‘I was never there. So you have to ask: Did Bill Clinton go to the island? That’s the question. You find that out, you’re going to know a lot.’
