Epstein, who was accused of running a sex trafficking ring soliciting minors, was found dead in a Manhattan jail cell on 10 August 2019. His death, which was officially ruled a suicide by hanging, sparked numerous conspiracy theories, as many people speculated that he didn’t kill himself but was murdered.
Donald Trump banned Jeffrey Epstein from his exclusive Mar-a-Lago club after the disgraced financier and accused sex trafficker tried to hit on the underage daughter of another member, according to a new book, “The Grifter’s Club: Trump, Mar-a-Lago, and the Selling of the Presidency”.
The authors of the book – Nicholas Nehamas, Sarah Blaskey, Caitlin Ostroff, and Jay Weaver – suggest that the incident occurred after Epstein had already been charged with soliciting prostitution, but several months before he pleaded guilty to the charges in 2008. They also claim that Epstein had himself been a member of Mar-a-Lago before he was banished – despite the Trump company’s statements, denying that he ever had membership.
