Axios reporter Jonathan Swan asked Trump in an interview that aired on HBO late Monday why he would offer warm wishes Maxwell, who is awaiting trial for alleged sex crimes. In the process, Trump stoked a conspiracy theory about Epstein's death, which his own attorney general has said was by suicide.
"She's now in jail. Yeah, I wish her well," Trump said of Maxwell. "I would wish you well. I would wish a lot of people well. Good luck. Let them prove somebody was guilty."
"So you're saying you hope she doesn't die in jail? Is that what you mean by wish her well?" Swan asked.
"Her boyfriend died in jail, and people are still trying to figure out how did it happen," Trump said, referring to Epstein. "Was it suicide, was he killed? And I do wish her well. I'm not looking for anything bad for her. I'm not looking bad for anybody."
