Video emerges showing Trump and Jeffrey Epstein partying with cheerleaders in 1992

The video, which shows Trump grabbing women in a manner consistent with his own description on the Access Hollywood tape, came about because Trump non-consensually kissed NBC anchor Faith Daniels on the lips in public.

In between clips of Trump smiling and dancing with a group of young women at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, the president can be seen making friendly conversation with Epstein.

When asked last week about his relationship with Epstein, Trump replied "I knew him like everybody in Palm Beach knew him".

But he has denied any close relationship with Epstein, the billionaire financier who pleaded guilty in Florida in 2008 to a state charge of soliciting prostitution from a minor, and was arrested in NY on July 8 on charges of sexually exploiting dozens of underage teenage girls over several years.

Morning Joe host Mika Brzezinski narrated the footage broadcast Wednesday showing the New York City businessman schmoozing alongside Epstein, who years later would later would be forced to register as a sex offender and is now accused of child sex trafficking. Trump dances with them, grabs them, bites his lip, and at one point, grabs a woman around her waist, pulls her against him, and then pats her butt.

Though the conversation is mostly drowned out by loud music, Trump is shown pointing out women to Epstein. "I knew him like everybody in Palm Beach knew him", he said, adding: "I was not a fan".

In a 2002 article on Epstein in NY magazine, Trump was quoted calling him a "terrific guy".

But a Trump attorney earlier this month told The New York Times that the now-president denies ever having a friendship with Epstein.

The footage was taken for a feature on Trump that aired on the NBC talk show "A Closer Look" [in November 1992]. Following Epstein's arrest, a 2002 quote from the president calling Epstein a "terrific guy" and "fun to be with" made the rounds, uncritically. Epstein at one point in the footage can be seen doubling over in laughter at something Trump says in his ear.

The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment on the video.
