A controversial tweet from Eric Trump's Twitter account disappeared after hundreds of people replied with criticism and photos that showed his father, President Donald Trump, socializing with the late financier Jeffrey Epstein.
On Thursday, Trump tweeted out a picture of former President Bill Clinton walking down a ceremonial aisle with his daughter, Chelsea, on her wedding day in 2010.
The British socialite and longtime associate of Epstein was arrested by the FBI on sexual abuse of minors charges, as well as perjury.
Trump's attempt to associate Clinton with Maxwell did not go unnoticed by others who have followed his father's history.
People on social media reminded the Trump's of their own connections with the heiress — which included their own private jet ride — and replied to the tweet with several pictures of the real-estate mogul with his wife and first lady, Melania.
The comment from a former rival, which came during a wide-ranging interview on a documentary released this year about Clinton's life, hits Trump on an issue that has depressed his reelection hopes and frustrated his administration.
The coronavirus pandemic has dominated the last four months of American life, including altering every aspect of the presidential campaign.
Clinton's latest round of interviews comes months after the release of "Hillary" and as the documentary begins to get awards consideration.
But Clinton's most pointed comments came in response to questions about the tumult facing the country, both over the ongoing pandemic, the nation's reckoning with racism and police brutality, and the way voters and top companies are approaching the 2020 campaign.
This week the focus has turned to the British socialite and ex-girlfriend of Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell, who is facing new allegations that she recruited and trafficked underage girls for the disgraced US financier who died by apparent suicide in August.
Maxwell has previously denied all allegations against her, but she remains in the spotlight as other women -- including Jennifer Araoz, who says Epstein sexually assaulted and raped her -- have accused Maxwell of being Epstein's "madam" and of conspiring to maintain and conceal a sex trafficking ring.
In a 2015 defamation case brought against Maxwell -- which was settled in 2017, after the judge had ruled against a motion for summary judgment filed by Maxwell -- Giuffre says she was "forced to have sexual relations" with the Duke of York when she was a minor in "three separate geographical locations," including London, New York and the US Virgin Islands.
