During a segment on Fox & Friends, host Steve Doocy highlighted former President Donald Trump in discussions surrounding recently unsealed court documents related to the Jeffrey Epstein case. The documents, comprising 40 files and over 900 pages, included names such as Bill Clinton, Alan Dershowitz, and David Copperfield.
Doocy referred to a New York Post report about Jeffrey Epstein’s surviving brother, Mark Epstein, who claimed that Jeffrey had hinted at having compromising information on both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump during the 2016 election. Quoting Mark Epstein, Doocy mentioned that Jeffrey had allegedly said, “If I said what I know about both candidates running in 2016, they’d have to cancel the election.”
Doocy then referenced an alleged victim who claimed that Epstein had told her that Bill Clinton “likes them young.” The victim also recounted an incident where Epstein’s plane made an unplanned stop in Atlantic City to visit Trump. While the victim couldn’t identify the specific casino, Doocy emphasized that they knew it was Trump’s.
Co-host Ainsley Earhart pointed out the uncertainty about the casino’s location, to which Doocy responded that, regardless, they were certain it was linked to Trump. Importantly, Trump is not accused of any wrongdoing in connection to these claims.
Epstein likes to tell people that he’s a loner, a man who’s never touched alcohol or drugs, and one whose nightlife is far from energetic. And yet if you talk to Donald Trump, a different Epstein emerges. “I’ve known Jeff for fifteen years. Terrific guy,” Trump booms from a speakerphone. “He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it — Jeffrey enjoys his social life.”
The segment acknowledged the sensitivity of discussing such allegations, with the hosts appearing cautious about potential libel issues. The mention of Trump in relation to the Epstein case is notable given Trump’s previous association with Epstein, as highlighted in a 2002 profile in New York Magazine where Trump spoke positively about Epstein, emphasizing their friendship and social interactions.
