Trump Defends Labor Secretary Acosta Over Billionaire Sex Trafficking Scandal
Reuters reports U.S. President Donald Trump defended his Labor Secretary Alexander Acosta on Tuesday.
Democrats are pressuring Acosta to resign over his handling of a decade-old sex abuse case against financier Jeffrey Epstein.
However, Trump said he too would look into the matter.
On Monday, Epstein was charged with federal sex trafficking charges, raising new questions about Acosta’s handling of Epstein's similar case in 2008.
