What Did She Say About Me? Ghislaine Maxwell Was Brought Up by Trump to Aides!

In July 2020, during a meeting in the Oval Office, Donald Trump asked staff members if Ghislaine Maxwell, the ex-girlfriend of financier and sex offender Jeffrey Epstein, had included him among powerful people she might rely on to protect her. Epstein had been detained on sex trafficking charges.

He continued, to quiet. What did she say about me?

In 2008, Epstein was found guilty and given a prison term in Florida for state-sanctioned prostitution. In July 2019, he was detained once more on suspicion of sex trafficking. One month later, he committed suicide in a New York prison.

Since then, journalistic rumors have been fueled by connections between Epstein, Maxwell, and notable associates like Trump and Prince Andrew.

On July 2, 2020, Maxwell, the daughter of British media tycoon Robert Maxwell, was detained in New Hampshire.

According to Haberman, on July 4, 2020, the Page Six section of the New York tabloid carried a piece that seemed to concern Trump.

An associate of Epstein’s named Steve Hoffenberg was quoted as saying: “Ghislaine thought she was untouchable — that she’d be protected by the intelligence communities she and Jeffrey helped with information: the Israeli intelligence services, and Les Wexner, who has donated millions to Israel; by Prince Andrew, President Clinton, and even by President Trump, who was well-known to be her and Epstein’s acquaintance.”

In the end, Maxwell was found guilty in New York in December 2021 on five out of six counts including the sex trafficking of kids. She received a 20-year prison term that was to begin in July 2022.

A legal lawsuit initiated by an Epstein victim who claimed she was coerced into having sex with the royal was resolved by Prince Andrew in February of this year. Andrew adamantly rejects any wrongdoing, but both in public and privately, his reputation has taken a hit.

Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and the Breaking of America, Haberman’s much-anticipated book, is released in the US on Tuesday.

Haberman, a veteran Trump observer who worked for the Post before the Times, details Trump’s 40-year New York business career as well as his presidential campaign, four turbulent years in the White House, and his ongoing, disruptive presence in US public life.

Maxwell and Epstein do not appear frequently. Maxwell was on the private plane as it flew to Florida, according to Haberman’s account of a flight taken by Trump in 1997 with a New Yorker reporter in tow. Haberman calls Maxwell “by then a close confidante of Trump’s pal Jeffrey Epstein”.


Maxwell’s response to Trump switching his in-flight movie selection from Michael, starring John Travolta as an angel, to Bloodsport, starring Jean-Claude Van Damme, and instructing “his 13-year-old son, Eric, to fast-forward through much of the dialogue to get to the fight scenes” is not described by Haberman.

But Haberman does mention a meeting between Trump and David Pecker that took place in New York at the beginning of 2015, before the start of Trump’s presidential campaign.

According to Haberman, the publisher of the National Enquirer showed up at Trump Tower “with a copy of the tabloid featuring Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, and Jeffrey Epstein, the investor and convicted sex offender who was once Trump’s friend but with whom Trump had broken off his friendship years earlier.”

Pecker and Trump “discussed Epstein’s private island, where it was said that he would bring influential men to have sex with young ladies. Trump claimed he had never visited there and referred to it as “whore island.”

Sam Nunberg, a former aide, is also quoted by Haberman in relation to what Trump said at the time when asked what his biggest concern was about running for president.

Trump’s response was straightforward, as Haberman puts it. “The ladies. Nunberg recalls that the subject was “women,” not “business” or “violence with anyone.”

More least 20 women have accused Trump of sexual harassment, misconduct, or assault. He is being sued for defamation by author E Jean Carroll over his response to her claim that he sexually assaulted her in the 1990s. Trump rejects all of these accusations.

Pecker was shown to have been involved in “capture and kill” operations, in which women, including Playboy model Karen McDougal, who claimed to have had romances with Trump, were paid for their stories but were never published.

Nunberg claimed that Trump “directed up toward his apartment,” where his third wife, Melania Trump, was residing at the time.

Trump said, “I’ll get in trouble upstairs.”

Additionally, according to Haberman, Melania Trump “renegotiated her prenuptial agreement” following the “ugly” 2016 election.
