Maxwell accuser testifies Epstein brought her to meet Donald Trump at age 14

A woman who accused Ghislaine Maxwell of grooming her to be sexually abused by Jeffrey Epstein testified Wednesday that the late financier took her to meet Donald Trump when she was 14 years old.

Under questioning from Maxwell’s defense attorney, Laura Menninger, during the trial in New York City, the woman, identified by the pseudonym Jane, said she met Trump at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla., in the 1990s.

She did not accuse the former president of any improper behavior and acknowledged she took part in a Miss Teen USA beauty pageant associated with Trump in 1998 but did not specify if that was before Epstein brought her to the resort or why they made the visit.

Trump was regularly photographed alongside Epstein, who was found dead in his prison cell as he faced federal sex trafficking charges in July 2019, in the 1990s and 2000s and called him a “terrific guy” in a 2002 interview.

After Epstein’s arrest in 2019, he said the late financier had been banned from Mar-a-Lago and said he was “not a fan” of him.

Last year, Trump said he wished Maxwell “well” when asked about the charges against her.
