Footage has emerged of Donald Trump and Jeffrey Epstein at a party together in 1992.
The archive NBC footage shows the now US president and billionaire financier Epstein, who is facing sex trafficking charges, laughing and joking together.
Mr Trump is also seen dancing to Rhythm Is A Dancer by Snap! in the clip.
At the time, he was a newly-divorced real estate mogul and Epstein’s infamous judicial deal was more than 10 years in the future.
There is no suggestion that there was any criminal wrongdoing taking place at the party and Mr Trump now claims he never liked Epstein.
Earlier this month, Epstein, 66, pleaded not guilty to sex trafficking, after prosecutors said they found nude photographs of what appeared to be underage girls, when federal agents searched his apartment.
He was arrested on 6 July on charges relating to claims dating back to the 2000s.
Epstein has also been accused of creating and maintaining a network that allowed him to sexually exploit dozens of girls, some as young as 14, from 2002 to 2005.
In 2007, he struck a deal which saw him plead guilty to a lesser Florida state felony prostitution charge when he was accused of sexually abusing dozens of girls as young as 14 from 1999.
He served a 13-month sentence in county jail, during which he was allowed to leave during the day to go to his office.
There is no suggestion Mr Trump was involved in or had knowledge of any wrongdoing related to Epstein.
