US President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he wants a thorough investigation into the death of businessman Jeffrey Epstein in a federal prison in New York City while he is awaiting trial on charges of sex trafficking.

“What we’re basically saying is that we want an investigation,” Trump told reporters in Morristown, New Jersey. “I want a thorough investigation and that’s definitely what I am asking for. That’s what our great justice minister is doing”.

Trump made the remarks a day after Attorney General William Barr pledged to continue his investigation into the Epstein case despite his death. Barr also ordered the Inspector General of the Ministry of Justice to consider his death. Epstein had extensive contacts and wealth.

Epstein, who once considered Trump and former US President Bill Clinton’s friend, was arrested on July 6. He refused to plead guilty to charges of sex trafficking, including dozens of minors, some as young as 14.

Epstein, 66, was found dead on Saturday morning, apparently hanging himself in his cell in a prison in Lower Manhattan. Epstein was under surveillance for fear of suicide, but a source said he was not an observer at the time of his death.
