Donald Trump has sent a message of support to Ghislaine Maxwell as she awaits her trial for sex trafficking minors. 

The president admitted meeting Jeffrey Epstein’s accused madam ‘numerous times’ over the years and wished her well in his Tuesday press conference – his first since vowing to return to coronavirus news briefings as cases soar across the US.

His show of support for Maxwell comes after Maxwell was denied bail last week on charges of luring underage girls so the convicted pedophile could sexually abuse them.

When asked by a reporter whether he thought Maxwell would turn in the names of powerful people in exchange for a plea deal, Trump responded saying he ‘hadn’t been following it too much’ but that he ‘wishes her well’.

‘I just wish her well frankly,’ he said.   

‘I’ve met her numerous times over the years especially since I lived in Palm Beach and I guess they lived in Palm Beach.’

Trump then reinforced his well-wishes for Maxwell but said he doesn’t know about the ‘situation’ with Prince Andrew.

‘But I wish her well whatever it is,’ he said. 

‘I don’t know the situation with Prince Andrew. I don’t know, I’m just not aware of it.’   

Maxwell, 58, was denied bail last Tuesday and learned she must stay locked up until her trial in summer 2021. 

Epstein’s accused madam has pleaded not guilty to the sex trafficking charges brought against her by multiple women.
