Donald Trump had a particularly colourful name for Jeffery Epstein’s private island, according to claims in a new book. The book, ‘Confidence Man: The Making of Donald Trump and the Breaking of America’ by Maggie Haberman also claims that Trump asked if Ghislaine Maxwell had mentioned him following her arrest in 2020.

The book claims that Mr Trump and the owner of the National Enquirer David Pecker met in 2015.

Mr Pecker arrived at Trump tower with a copy of the paper “featuring Prince Andrew, the Duke of York, and Jeffrey Epstein, the investor and convicted sex offender and onetime friend of Trump, with whom Trump had fallen out years earlier,” according to the book.

The book claims the two men discussed “Epstein’s private island, where he was rumoured to bring powerful men to have sexual encounters with young women. Trump called it ‘w**** island’ and told aides he had never been there”.

In addition to the nickname, the book claims that in 2020 Mr Trump asked about Ghislaine Maxwell’s arrest after seeing a New York Post article which mentioned his name.

In the article, which claimed Maxwell will “name names”, Mr Trump is alleged to have asked his campaign advisors: “She say anything about me?”

Mr Trump has ties to both Jeffery Epstein and Ghislaine Maxwell. His Mar a Lago resort is not far from where Epstein lived in Palm Beach.

Last year, a court heard that Epstein took one of his victims to the resort, a then 14-year-old girl who he introduced to Mr Trump. Mr Trump was never accused of any wrongdoing.

Epstein was convicted and sentenced in Florida in 2008 on state prostitution charges. He was then arrested on sex-trafficking charges in July 2019. The disgraced financier killed himself in his cell in New York one month later.

Maxwell, a British socialite, was arrested in New Hampshire in July 2020. She was later convicted on five of six charges brought against her, including sex trafficking a minor. She was sentenced to 20 years in prison.

Mr Trump has called the book by Ms Haberman a “fake book” with “many made up stories”. It was published yesterday, October 4.

Ms Haberman has long covered Donald Trump in her career as a journalist, working for the New York Post and Politico before moving to the New York Times.

The book examines Mr Trump’s business career over the last 40 years in New York, his presidential campaign, presidency and his influence following his 2020 election defeat. It does not feature Epstein and Maxwell extensively.

The news comes as Donald Trump grapples with legal challenges in the US including a civil suit against him and three of his children in New York state for allegedly inflating the value of their business assets.

In August, the FBI raided his Mar a Lago property, where agents found several dozen empty folders marked “classified”.

The US Department of Justice also said it had found more than 100 classified documents at the estate.

Mr Trump’s lawyers have asked the Supreme Court to intervene in the investigation surrounding the documents.

In addition, Mr Trump has filed a $475 million defamation lawsuit against the news network CNN.
