President Trump added fuel to the conspiracy theories surrounding multimillionaire Jeffrey Epstein’s apparent suicide on Saturday when he retweeted a post that implied former President Bill Clinton was linked to Epstein’s death.
The tweet came from self-described comedian Terrence K. Williams who echoed many on social media in suggesting a connection between the Clintons and Epstein, who previously was an acquaintance of the former president.
“Died of SUICIDE on 24/7 SUICIDE WATCH ? Yeah right! How does that happen,” the tweet read, alongside a photo of Epstein and one of the Clintons. “#JefferyEpstein had information on Bill Clinton & now he’s dead I see #TrumpBodyCount trending but we know who did this! RT if you’re not Surprised.”
Trump’s tweet came shortly after Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., pushed back on the “immediate rush to spread conspiracy theories about someone” in another political party.
