“This is not some sordid sex story,” Giuffre said. “This is a story of being trafficked. This is a story of abuse, and this is a story of your guys’ royalty.”
“In the car Ghislaine tells me that I have to do for Andrew what I do for Jeffrey and that just made me sick,” Giuffre said, referring to Epstein’s ex-girlfriend and alleged madam, Ghislaine Maxwell. “I just didn’t expect it from royalty. I didn’t expect it from someone people look up to and admire.”
Andrew has repeatedly denied “any form of sexual contact or relationship” with Giuffre, claiming in another BBC interview last month that he had been at a party in the Woking branch of Pizza Express with his daughter at the time of the alleged meeting.
Trump has also distanced himself from Epstein despite claiming in 2002 that the two men shared a long friendship. Kellyanne Conway, the president’s counselor, said this year that Trump hadn’t spoken to Epstein “in 10 or 15 years,” and called the charges leveled against Epstein “disgusting” and “obviously criminal.”
Claiming not to know Prince Andrew was not the only falsehood Trump gave at his Tuesday morning press conference.
He repeated a false claim that he predicted the outcome of the 2016 Brexit referendum “the day before” the result, while he was opening his Turnberry golf course in Scotland.
