On Tuesday, President Donald Trump said that he was not a fan of Jeffrey Epstein, despite comments in the past praising the wealthy hedge fund manager.

According to FOX NEWS, Trump was asked during an interview in the Oval Office with the emir of Qatar, about the relationship with Epstein, 66, who pleaded not guilty to sex trafficking in New York federal court.

“I know him, just like everybody in Palm Beach knew him”, Trump said.

“I had a falling out with him a long time ago,” Trump continued. “I don’t think I’ve spoken to him in 15 years. I was not a fan. I was not a fan of his. That I can tell you. I was not a fan.

Epstein and Trump were said to be friends; something the president’s legal has denied. Epstein was known to be one of former President Bill Clinton’s and Britain’s Prince Andrew friends.

Meanwhile, Clinton on Monday, released a statement acknowledging that he had taken a total of four trips on Epstein’s private jet, but said he knows nothing about the terrible crimes linked to Epstein.
