Donald Trump Retweets Conspiracy Theories Linking Clintons With Jeffrey Epstein's Death
President Donald Trump has retweeted conspiracy theories linking the Clintons with the death of billionaire Jeffrey Epstein.
The financier - who was awaiting trial on sex trafficking charges - was found dead in his cell in New York on Saturday.
Officials said the 66-year-old's death was caused by an 'apparent suicide', however, Trump has retweeted theories indicating that the Clinton family were in some way linked to his death.
One such tweet read: "Died of SUICIDE on 24/7 SUICIDE WATCH? Yeah right! How does that happen #JefferyEpstein had information on Bill Clinton & now he's dead I see #TrumpBodyCount trending but we know who did this! RT if you're not Surprised."
Another tweet indicated that Bill Clinton regularly visited Epstein's 'paedophilia island'.
A Clinton spokesman responded to the President's retweets, suggesting the 25th Amendment should be utilised to remove him from office.
The tweet read: "Ridiculous, and of course not true - and Donald Trump knows it. Has he triggered the 25th Amendment yet?"
After Epstein was arrested last month, Bill Clinton issued a statement in which he denied having ever visited the billionaire's Caribbean island.

The statement released by his office read: "President Clinton knows nothing about the terrible crimes Jeffrey Epstein pleaded guilty to in Florida some years ago, or those with which he has been recently charged in New York.
"In 2002 and 2003, President Clinton took a total of four trips on Jeffrey Epstein's airplane: one to Europe, one to Asia, and two to Africa, which included stops in connection with the work of the Clinton Foundation.
"Staff, supporters of the Foundation, and his Secret Service detail travelled on every leg of every trip.
"He had one meeting with Epstein in his Harlem office in 2002, and around the same time made one brief visit to Epstein's New York apartment with a staff member and his security detail.
"He's not spoken to Epstein in well over a decade, and has never been to Little St. James Island, Epstein's ranch in New Mexico, or his residence in Florida."
In a 2002 feature in New York Magazine, Trump was quoted as describing Epstein as a 'terrific guy'. However, he has since said he fell out with Epstein around '12 or 15 years ago' and last month he said he was 'not a fan of Jeffrey Epstein'.
Epstein was facing federal charges of molesting teenage girls, but had pleaded not guilty to sex trafficking and conspiracy charges and was being held without bail.
He had previously been moved to a suicide-watch unit after being found unconscious in his cell with marks on his neck on 23 July.
