Following Epstein’s arrest the other day, a flurry of [desperate pro-Trump posts](https://np.reddit.com/r/Conservative/comments/cb0u2j/epstein_was_banned_from_maralago_club_after/) are flooding Reddit doubling down how Trump banned his freind Epstein from Mar-a-Lago lair in 2007.
The reason for Trump preportedly kicking out Epstein was that he was caught solicitating a towel girl for massages.
In newly-released court papers from that year, it’s revealed how Epstein was using Mar-a-Lago’s facilities to ‘recruit’ underage girls, grooming them for his sex-trafficking network.
One girl- Virginia Giuffre- was a 15-year old summer job applicant at Mar-a-Lago, through her father who was the site’s maintenance manager. Epstein would then go on to sexually abuse the Giuffre until she was 18, where her father found out.
One would think that this would be the actual spark that initiated Trump to expell his buddy Epstein.
**But, no. He never did. In fact, that could not be further from the truth.**
[This ironically surprising source actually shows that neither Trump nor Mar-a-Lago has ever confirmed that he had barred Epstein from Mar-a-Lago.](https://www.foxnews.com/us/jeffrey-epstein-sex-trafficking-accusations-new-york-virgin-islands-florida-new-mexico-ranch)
>Trump banned Epstein from his Mar-a-Lago estate “because Epstein sexually assaulted an underage girl at the club,” according to court documents filed by Bradley Edwards, the lawyer who has represented several Epstein accusers. **That claim has not been confirmed by Trump or Mar-a-Lago.**
[In actual fact, Epstein has always denied being barred from Mar-a-Lago.](https://pagesix.com/2007/10/15/sex-case-victims-lining-up/)
> Meanwhile, the Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach last night confirmed a Web site report that Epstein has been banned there. “He would use the spa to try to procure girls. But one of them, a masseuse about 18 years old, he tried to get her to do things,” a source told us. “Her father found out about it and went absolutely ape-[bleep]. Epstein’s not allowed back.” **Epstein denies he is banned from Mar-a-Lago and says, in fact, he was recently invited to an event there.**
Now Bradley Edwards- the lawyer who represented Epstein’s victims in previous civil cas- did praise Trump for his cooperation. But then, by that time, Trump was already facing over 20 of his own accusations, some from minors….
[And this is just a little something for those denying Trump’s freindship with Epstein.](https://www.gettyimages.co.uk/detail/news-photo/from-left-american-real-estate-developer-donald-trump-and-news-photo/700334384)
