Booker and Beto condemn Trump for sharing conspiracy theory about Jeffrey Epstein


Presidential contenders from Democratic party, Cory Booker and Beto O'Rourke, are outraged after United States President Donald Trump promoted a conspiracy theory about the apparent suicide of Jeffrey Epstein. The disgraced financier was found dead in his New York jail cell on August 10.
Trump had retweeted on Saturday a message from conservative comedian and commentator Terrence K. Williams, who said in part that Epstein "had information on Bill Clinton & now he's dead."
Epstein, who was charged for sex trafficking, had a lot of friend among Hollywood stars and politicians, including Donald Trump and Bill Clinton. After his death was confirmed on Saturday, Trump retweeted claim from a conservative comedian that Clinton was somehow responsible for this death. However, O'Rourke commented that this theory is baseless.
Talking to CNN, a former congressman from Texas said that Trump is acting irresponsibly, as his claims are nothing more than unfounded conspiracy theories. In his words, President Trump is using his position to attack his political opponents. O'Rourke also thinks that Trump is trying to use this situation and shift focus from recent mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio, and El Paso, Texas. These tragic events made many criticize current gun control laws and anti-immigrant policies. O'Rourke is sure that Trump wants him to talk about his retweet rather than real problems.
Booker has a similar opinion, remind everyone that this is nothing new from Trump, who is known for his reckless acting on Twitter. He also thinks that the current U.S. president is spreading false conspiracy theories that make people angry and pushes them into conflict.
In the meantime, investigation about the death of Epstein has been opened, and U.S. Attorney General William Barr said that serious questions had been raised and they need to be answered.
