Years before Donald Trump became a politician, let alone President of the United States, he posted an interesting message on Twitter that is more relevant today than ever before:
“Got to do something about these missing chidlren[sic] grabbed by the perverts. Too many incidents—fast trial, death penalty.”

His wish might finally come true.
Yesterday, billionaire Jeffrey Epstein was arrested and charged with sex trafficking. He is due to appear in a New York court on Monday.
According to a report from the Boston Globe:
Epstein, a wealthy hedge fund manager who once counted as friends former President Bill Clinton, Great Britain’s Prince Andrew, and President Donald Trump, was taken into federal custody and is expected to appear Monday in Manhattan federal court, three law enforcement officials told The Associated Press.
One of the officials said Epstein is accused of paying underage girls for massages and molesting them at his homes in Florida and New York.
Not surprisingly, many on social media are virtue signaling about how this might eventually be Trump’s downfall:
Trump can’t pardon his way out of this new Jeffrey Epstein scandal https://t.co/cZCmHV6D2j

Today's a good day to find out from the Trump supporters in your life whether they'll stop supporting him if it's revealed in the Jeffrey Epstein case that Trump raped children. It's important to get them to commit now so if and when that fact comes out you've got them on record.

Nothing could be further from the truth.
In November of last year, we predicted the media, Democrats and other leftists suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome (TDS) would use this tactic to either try to impeach the POTUS or undermine his 2020 reelection campaign.
It’s important to keep in mind that even though Trump had business dealings with Epstein in the past, he quickly distanced himself from the man after a series of distressing events:
Trump banned billionaire pedophile Jeffrey Epstein from Mar-a-Lago. Bill Clinton was a regular passenger on his creepy plane and has been accused of visiting his island. …And MSNBC doesn't let that slide. https://t.co/qEZT47WcwE

Epstein connections are wild.
Court filings say Trump banned Jeffrey Epstein from Mar-a-Lago because Epstein sexually assaulted a minor.
Bill Clinton flew on Epstein’s plane 26x during the time period Jeffrey’s arrested for trafficking during, many times without Secret Service.

For those that want to implicate President Donald Trump "Trump banned Epstein from his Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach "because Epstein sexually assaulted an underage girl at the club," Bradley Edwards, an attorney who represents three of the young women, said in court documents."

In January, Roger Stone, a longtime friend and confidant of the president, told a story about what Trump witnessed after being invited to a party at Epstein’s home:
During the 2016 election cycle, Fox News’ Sean Hannity asked Trump to give his thoughts on Bill Clinton.
“Nice guy,” he replied. “Got a lot of problems coming up in my opinion with the famous island… with Jeffrey Epstein. A lot of problems.”
It is doubtful Trump had anything to do with Epstein’s alleged predatory escapades; in fact, he has vehemently come out against such disgusting behavior not just on social media, but during interviews as well.
With Jeffrey Epstein finally in custody and the fact that up to 2,000 pages from documents related to his past cases will finally be unsealed, things might start to get very interesting (for a few other bigwig political players).
