President Trump Indicates He Banned Epstein From Mar-a-Lago…Says It’s Proof He Has ‘Good Taste’

President Trump seems to have confirmed what has been widely reported that he had banned Jeffrey Epstein from Mar a Lago after he sexually molested a 16-year-old girl. He says it’s proof that he has good taste, and it destroys the narrative that Trump was connected with Epstein. All they offer as proof to the contrary is a quote where Trump said that Epstein was a good guy…but that was years before Epstein’s first arrest.

Trump said:

“I was not a fan of Jeffrey Epstein, and you watched people yesterday saying that I threw him out of a club. I didn’t want anything to do with him. That was many, many years ago. It shows you one thing, that I have good taste. Okay?”

From The Daily Caller

President Trump apparently confirmed Friday he banned Jeffrey Epstein from Mar-A-Lago, saying he didn’t want anything to do with Epstein, and the move shows he has “good taste.”

“I was not a fan of Jeffrey Epstein, and you watched people yesterday saying that I threw him out of a club,” Trump told reporters as he was leaving the White House. “I didn’t want anything to do with him. That was many, many years ago. It shows you one thing, that I have good taste. Okay?”

“Now, other people, they went all over with him, they went to his island, they went all over the place. He was very well known in Palm Beach, his island, whatever his island was, wherever it is, I was never there. Find out the people that went to the island.” 

“But Jeffrey Epstein was not somebody that I respected. I threw him out. In fact, I think the great James Patterson, who is a member of Mar-a-Lago, made a statement yesterday that many years ago I threw him out. I’m not a fan of Jeffrey Epstein.”
