Donald Trump Says ‘I Don’t Know Prince Andrew,’ Despite Meeting with the Royal Before Jeffrey Epstein’s Arrest

President Donald Trump has attempted to distance himself from Prince Andrew by claiming he “doesn’t know” the under-fire royal despite meeting with him several times down the years.

Speaking during the NATO summit in London on Tuesday, Trump told reporters “I Don’t Know Prince Andrew,” adding “but it’s a tough story, it’s a very tough story,” referring to the criticism the Duke of York has received about his relationship with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

Prince Andrew, along with Trump, are known to have been friends with the billionaire financier for several years before his death in August while awaiting trial for child sex trafficking offenses.
