With pressure being put on Alexander Acosta, Trump Administration Secretary of Labor to resign because of his handling of the Florida case against Jeffrey Epstein illegally violated the rights of Epstein’s victims, Donald Trump said the following yesterday.
(From the cited article: "Mr. Trump, in remarks while he met with the emir of Qatar, said on Tuesday that he felt “badly” for Mr. Acosta and praised him as “an excellent secretary of labor.”)
In contrast, Mr. Trump said nothing about the young women whom Epstein abused and whose rights Acosta violated.
It is good to see where the President’s sympathies lie, and don’t lie. In the elections since 2016, there has been a marked shift in both the turnout and Democratic leanings of women voters. Anyone wonder why?
My sole point was that at the point where Trump was expressing his sympathy for Acosta, he had a perfect opportunity to talk sympathetically about the victims and how it is important that they have a full and fair opportunity to seek justice. This isn’t really hard to figure out.
What an out rage. Thanks for bringing this to our attention. I also remember when Trump didn’t have any words of empathy for the victims of Kavanaugh’s abuse, either. I’m beginning to see a pattern here.
