Donald Trump doubled down on his support of Ghislaine Maxwell on Monday night and said he does wish her well as she proceeds to trial on charges of child sex trafficking for her 'boyfriend' Jeffrey Epstein.
Maxwell is currently in custody in Brooklyn and faces 35 years behind bars if convicted of the charges.
Prosecutors say she procured underage girls for Jeffrey Epstein in the 1990s and that the pair both he sexually abused them. She denies the claims.
Epstein, who killed himself in jail last year on similar charges, escaped justice.
While Attorney General Bill Barr has vowed not to allow Maxwell the chance to take her own life in custody, Trump has offered a more sympathetic tone to the British socialite.
'Well, her boyfriend died in jail, and people are still trying to figure out how did it happen. Was it suicide? Was he killed? And I do wish her well.
'I'm not looking for anything bad for her. I'm not looking bad for anybody,' he said.
He then said Maxwell was innocent until proven guilty, continuing: 'Yeah, I'd wish her well. I'd wish you well, I'd wish a lot of people well. Good luck. Let them prove somebody was guilty.'
Before Maxwell's arrest, dozens of women claimed in lawsuits that she trafficked them for Epstein and for his network of high profile friends.
There is no suggestion that Trump was ever involved in any of the late pedophile's sexual activity.
The president and Epstein were friends at one time and he described him as a 'terrific guy' who had a taste for 'younger ladies'.
