President Trump wants convicted sex offender and financier Jeffrey Epstein’s former girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell to be brought to “justice,” White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said Thursday.

In an interview on “America’s Newsroom,” McEnany addressed recent comments from the president on Maxwell that “raised eyebrows” on both sides of the aisle.

During a Tuesday coronavirus task force briefing, the president said he wishes Maxwell “well.”

“I just wish her well, frankly,” he told reporters. “I’ve met her numerous times over the years… I just wish her well, whatever it is.”

Maxwell, a 58-year-old British socialite, was arrested earlier this month on charges of transporting children for illegal sex acts and lying during investigations into Epstein. She was accused of encouraging young girls to become close to Epstein, having him pay for their outings, and asking about their family lives. Maxwell has denied the charges.

President Trump added that he had not followed Maxwell’s case closely.

“Well, what the president was noting is that the last person who was charged in this case ended up dead in a jail cell,” McEnany explained. “And, the president wants justice to be served for the victims in this case and he prefers this to play out in a courtroom.”

“Have you talked to him about that?” asked host Bret Baier.

“I have spoken to him about that,” McEnany replied.

“Because a lot of people were saying … it just seemed – strange answer, but…” Baier said.

“And, let me note one more thing, Bret,” McEnany interjected. “You know, this president is the president that banned Jeffrey Epstein from coming to Mar-a-Lago. This president was always on top of this, ahead of this, noting this – banning this man from his property long before this case was even being played out in a court of law.”
