An image shared on social media purportedly shows former President Donald Trump with Jeffrey Epstein and underage girls.

The claim is inaccurate. The image is fabricated.
Trump’s attorneys have filed a motion requesting evidence in the special grand jury in the Fulton County, Georgia investigation into the former President’s conduct after the 2020 election, CNN reported. Trump’s lawyers have filed separate petitions for intervention in the grand jury process to the Fulton County Superior Court and the Georgia Supreme Court.
The Twitter post shows an alleged photo of Epstein and Trump sitting on a couch with several apparent underage girls. In the alleged photo, the two men are smiling while the young girls hold them.
The caption reads, “You tell me, why aren’t you speaking out against this?”
The claim is inaccurate. There is no credible news report that suggests this is authentic. The image appears to have been generated by A.I. There are several irregularities that suggest that it is a generated image. For example, Epstein’s legs are not in the image and there are several hands-on Epstein’s shoulders that are inexplicable. Furthermore, the girl’s arm on Trump appears to be far too long.
