Judge Trump by the company he keeps

July 24th, 2020 – The Lincoln Project today released a new video, “Maxwell,” taking aim at President Trump’s recent well wishes for accused, child sex trafficker Ghislaine Maxwell.

Maxwell has been charged with helping to recruit, train, and manage a harem of young women, some minors at the time, as part of a child sexual abuse ring centered around Jeffrey Epstein. Epstein and Maxwell were both well acquainted with President Trump.

“It’s despicable to hear the president express sympathy for an accused child sex trafficker,” said Tara Setmayer, Senior Advisor to The Lincoln Project. She added, “While the country continues to grieve unspeakable loss from the Trump Administration’s failed COVID-19 response, the President wishes an alleged pedophile pimp well from the White House podium. Shameful.”

For now, Trump continues to sully the Office of the Presidency through his seedy and corrupt connections. In November, Americans will restore its dignity by removing him from office.



There is no time for complacency.

There is no time for living room activism. Every day must be spent asking ourselves if we’re doing our part, if we’re doing enough to ensure that the grand idea called America continues.

Thank you for joining us in this fight.
