Donald Trump Comments on Harvey Weinstein's Guilty Verdict

Donald Trump is reacting to Harvey Weinstein‘s conviction.

The 73-year-old U.S. president shared his thoughts on the 67-year-old disgraced film producer’s verdict, who was found guilty on Monday (February 24) of committing a criminal sexual act in the first degree and third-degree rape.

“I was never a fan of Harvey Weinstein,” Trump told reporters at a press conference in India (via Deadline). “I think he said he was going to work hard to defeat me in the election. How did that work out, by the way? He was a person I didn’t like.”

“I knew him a little bit but not very well,” Trump continued. “I knew him because he was in New York. Not a person I liked. I will say the people that liked him were the Democrats. Michelle Obama loved him. Loved him. Hillary Clinton loved him. And he gave tremendous money to the Democrats and my question is, will the Democrats be asking for that money back?”

“From the standpoint of women, I think it was a great thing,” Donald Trump added. “It was a great victory and sends a very strong message. Very, very strong message.”
