Jeffrey wasn’t like that, he wasn’t a flamboyant individual, however very low-key and did not say a lot. So it appeared like Jeffrey was his wingman, however Jeffrey was actually utilizing the Victoria’s Secret connection. That was his draw. And Donald would additionally brag, “Are you aware Jeffrey? My buddy can get you to Victoria’s Secret.’ He did that with the women. These two have been positively good pals, they have been shut, they lived two blocks away in New York. He is downplaying it now as a result of clearly Epstein is now thought-about a pedophile and he does not wish to be spoken to in the identical class. They at all times had girls round them. I’d even say that the women have been screaming for his or her consideration. They weren’t all teenagers – I had just a few teenagers within the occasion however they have been largely between the ages of 18 and 30. There have been just a few minors, I at all times had an issue taking them as I needed to watch them like hawks . I used to be very cautious of latest folks coming in as a result of I had suspicions about their intentions. I used to be the sort to care about these males. I used to be accountable for these girls. A few of them have been younger. I am positive that is why Donald liked the election actions. He simply wished to have his free alternative of the litter.”

Harth says: “Epstein, I feel he judged twice – one in Grand Bahamas and the opposite with Trump in Atlantic Metropolis. He would choose the modeling contest. So that you assist the women rating after they enter – we had a swimwear and night put on occasion and an interview. He was certainly one of many judges, not solely was it a panel of 5 or 6, however he would socialize with the women. I did not know what to consider him as a result of I did not know what Trump was about on the time. I used to be younger and too busy main these occasions, I had lots of accountability. However I did not like how this complete occasion began to vary when guys like this got here into the image. Issues began to take a flip for the occasions I had labored so exhausting on – and I did not prefer it. It is one of many causes I wished to get out of there [the pageant industry]. Epstein and Trump have been the massive cojones within the group. These have been the 2 who have been wealthy, and in Trump’s case, identified.”
Harth believes Trump was not involved about Epstein’s involvement with younger girls.
“No, I do not assume Trump cared. The youthful the higher. That is my thought on it now. I say: ‘You’re, who you affiliate with. Epstein dabbled with lots of completely different girls and so did Donald. There are such a lot of extra that do not come out as a result of there isn’t any constructive aspect to it. There may be none. It has had a huge effect on my life,” Harth reveals.
