Donald Trump Defends Alexander Acosta Over Jeffrey Epstein Case

President Donald Trump recently defended his Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta.

Acosta faces pressure from Democrats to resign over his handling of a sex abuse case against Jeffrey Epstein.

Epstein faces sex trafficking charges, bringing into question how Acosta handled his case in 2008.

Over a decade ago, Acosta gave Epstein a plea deal for a related case in Florida.

Trump said he feels bad for Acosta and knows him as someone who β€œworks so hard and has done such a good job.”
