Donald and Ivanka presented wildly different messages on sex trafficking within 24 hours of each other.
On August 4, Ivanka Trump appeared along with Attorney General William Barr to announce a $35 million grant to provide housing to people involved in human trafficking.
Ivanka Trump described the money as “funding to ensure that survivors have a stable place to live” in a press release.
But the night before, HBO aired Donald Trump doubling down on his positive message for accused child sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell.
“Yeah, I wish her well. I’d wish you well. I’d wish a lot of people well. Good luck. Let them prove somebody was guilty,” Trump said.
The statement was a reiteration of Trump’s proclamation at a press conference that he wished Maxwell “well.”
Trump’s comments raised eyebrows coast to coast because of Maxwell’s connection to pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.
“Maxwell is charged with enticement and conspiracy to entice minors, as young as 14, to travel to engage in illegal sex acts, transportation and conspiracy to transport minors with intent to engage in criminal sexual activity, and two counts of perjury,” CNN reported.
Trump was one of many famous and wealthy people who frequently partied with Epstein and Maxwell. Previously he told reporters that he met Maxwell “numerous” times.
Lawyer Alan Dershowitz, who argued on Trump’s behalf at his impeachment trial earlier in the year, was also an associate of Epstein’s.
