New York Times: Trump Hosted A Party For Himself, Jeffrey Epstein And 28 Girls At Mar-a-Lago
The New York Times reports that President Donald Trump hosted a party for himself and billionaire Jeffrey Epstein with 28 girls at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club in Palm Beach, Florida in 1992.
George Houraney, a Florida-based businessman who ran American Dream Enterprise, said he set up the “calendar girl” competition for Trump and Epstein (who was recently charged with sex trafficking underage girls):
I arranged to have some contestants fly in. At the very first party, I said,”Who’s coming tonight? I have 28 girls coming.” It was him and Epstein. I said, ‘Donald, this is supposed to be a party with V.I.P.s. You’re telling me it’s you and Epstein?“
I said, “Look, Donald, I know Jeff really well, I can’t have him going after younger girls.” He said, “Look I’m putting my name on this. I wouldn’t put my name on it and have a scandal.” [I] pretty much had to ban Jeff from my events — Trump didn’t care about that.
Michael Gross, who has covered Trump since 1985, said Trump was once known for throwing cocaine-fueled parties where teenage models — as young as 15 years old — were introduced to Trump’s rich, older friends on the promise that they’d meet well-connected men who might help them enter the modeling industry. noted the Daily Beast in 2016.
One former guest, a fashion photographer who refused to be identified, described Trump engaging in sex with the girls:
It’s based on power and dominating girls who can’t push back and can be discarded. There’s always someone to pick them back up. Nobody wants to call home and say “Help me.”
Trump was at the heart of it. He loved the attention and in private, he was a total f*cking beast.
Andy Lucchesi, who’s still a model, said he couldn’t be sure how old some of those Trump partners had been:
So, he’s a man with a woman. A lot of girls, 14, look 24. That’s as juicy as I can get. I never asked how old they were, I just partook. I did partake in activities that would be controversial, too.
